A distribution agreement between drainage firm Jet Through and Green Drain Europe will introduce an innovative floor drain trap seal product to the UK market.
The floor drain trap seal allows for the flow of water but blocks harmful gases including methane, chlorine and hydrogen sulfide – as well as other odours and pests – from emerging from pipes into the atmosphere.
The seal which is available in five different sizes features a UV resistant frame combined with four sealing flanges that fit across older and modern openings. The product, which was initially launched in the USA in 2021, is set to be installed by Jet Through engineers in various UK-based healthcare settings, as well as in factories, hotels, restaurants and retail.
Luke Yates is Associate Director at Jet Through, whose services include the cleaning, unblocking, jetting and repair of drainage systems on commercial and residential properties.
He says: “Our growth as a business has been built on helping to prevent problems rather than providing quick fixes, and our partnership with Green Drain underlines this.
“Partnering with Green Drain Europe is a great vote of confidence in our expertise and reach, and will see us rolling the product out in various industries over the coming months.
“The product also has great long-term eco credentials too, as the drain is self-cleaning and prevents the back flow of water and wastage, therefore removing the need to use traditional chemicals to clean drainage systems.
“Being able to roll-out facilities management products that have long-term benefits for various industries – such as with Green Drain – sets us up for further growth over the coming months as we aim to beat this year’s annual turnover of £1.4 million.”
