Purus - Cambridge University’s Biomedical Campus

Purus Limited, the manufacturer of drainage solutions for level-access shower areas and wetrooms, are delighted to announce that their 59mm Purus Line linear drainage channels have recently been installed at the innovative Abcam Building, one of the newest developments at Cambridge University’s Biomedical Campus (CBC). Abcam, a global innovator in life science reagents and tools, has recently moved into the purpose-built global headquarters. The new facility accommodates up to 450 employees while providing 75% more space, features fully flexible laboratory configurations and has new instrumentation and technology for enhanced scientific capabilities. In addition, Abcam’s headquarters at CBC have been developed to meet global sustainability standards, help protect the natural environment and enhance employee wellbeing. Purus are honoured for their products to feature as part of such a revolutionary project.

Purus - Cambridge University’s Biomedical CampusThe products chosen for installation at Abcam’s new headquarters are Purus’ recently launched 59mm Purus Line drainage channels with Tile Insert grates. The super low-level linear drains for concrete subfloors are available in lengths ranging from 600mm to 1200mm and have a total height of just 59mm, making them the ideal solution for when floor space in a tiled wetroom or level-access shower area is very limited. The 59mm Purus Line can be fitted against the wall or elsewhere in the room, opening up the possibility to install in a location best suited to your requirements. The Tile Insert grate option of the low-level channels, which has been used for the Abcam project, is a very popular choice with customers as it allows tiles of your choice, up to 10mm thick, to be fitted within the grate itself with a thin stainless steel surround so that the grate is flush with the surrounding floor tiles.

As well as the 59mm Purus Line for tiled floor finishes, Purus also offer alternative linear solutions including those for vinyl floors and in other lengths.

Product information, including technical drawings, images and installation instructions for the 59mm Purus Line, can be viewed on Purus’ website at www.purusgroup.com. You can also contact Purus directly by using the email option below.  Products are available to purchase from Purus’ distributors.
