The team at Component Developments are celebrating 40 years the providing stainless steel drainage channel solutions, gratings, slot drains, trapped gullies, manhole covers, kerbs, corner guards and surface protection to the building industry. Established in 1984 the company was the first to market in the UK providing stainless steel drainage systems, replacing the longstanding cast iron or tiled solutions. During this time they have developed trusted and proven product solutions working with architects, public health consultants, contractors, designers and in-house food manufacturing engineers in a collaborative approach to provide floor drainage solutions in a variety of locations.

The range of systems have been developed for use in kitchens, leisure centres, food production, breweries and wineries, anywhere where surface drainage is required, hygiene is an issue or the aesthetic benefits are desired, stainless steel drainage systems provide the most durable, applicable and environmentally friendly solution.

Manufacturing in Telford for the entirety of its 40 year history, this central location provides a UK based, locally sourced product, reducing the environmental impact and helping design teams with the move towards carbon neutral. The central location and in-house manufacturing also provides the team the ability to respond quickly to site and programme requirements.

The team provide responsive, personal, customer focus support from initial design concept through to final delivery. Often working from hand sketches, developing the design to a workable specification, then utilising the latest solid modelling software to provide rendered concept details aiding visualisation of the final design and also combining with the latest CAD CAM technology to support efficient manufacturing methods.

These abilities were essential in providing an external façade drainage solution for 100 Liverpool Street, London. British Land’s first net zero carbon development and a BREEAM outstanding building. Working with the design team and installers, a bespoke slot drain system was engineered, designed and manufactured to follow the
contours of this curvaceous building located discreetly where the windows meet the paving.
