Channel Drainage Systems for any Site

Channel Drainage Systems and that old Eurythmics song, Here Comes The Rain Again, frequently come to mind at this time of year. I so often seem to have that song going around my head because even though we’ve just had another wet and wild winter, but you just know the rain will keep falling into April and beyond.

Eco Friendly Wall Ties Reduce Heat Loss

Eco Friendly Wall Ties available from KPC reduce heat loss in cavity wall constructions. KPC has been providing a range of eco friendly products for some time now.

Window Sill Supports with Thermal Isolation

KPC has always been strong on engineered solutions. We pride ourselves on being able to adapt our standard building components or to produce new custom components as required. One example of this innovative engineering capacity didn’t require any change in the component in question, but rather a certification test to establish that our GFRP Wall Ties would have sufficient point load strength to function perfectly as Window Sill Supports.
