Leading clay pipe manufacturer, Hepworth Clay, has launched a new product and installation guide to offer support in using and getting the best out of clay drainage solutions.

The installation section of the new guide is intended to be used for product information and guidance with links to detailed how-to videos and online training resources. The tool also gives a first look at the upcoming BS 9295 standard regarding recycled aggregates for bedding clay pipes. It provides technical notes on working with difficult site conditions with regards to product use and site safety.

Paul Wydell, Hepworth Clay Product Manager for Wavin, said: “The new guide provides much more than just product details and installation information. We’ve designed it to be a helpful reference point with advice, tips, diagrams and guidance that will help contractors and installers to work efficiently and safely with clay drainage solutions, as well as develop their understanding of the standards and regulations that inform their work.”

The tool can be downloaded digitally, or a printed version can be requested enabling installers to work from the guide in the way that suits them best.

Paul added: “It’s a tool for both those that are familiar with the subject but need to update their reference material and those who are recently qualified engineers who need to build their knowledge and experience quickly and accurately. Essentially, it’s a guide that will protect the reputation of your client, the practice and yourself all rolled in to one.”
