I will not tell you, I will show you

I would like to explain what sustainability means to ULMA.

This word also refers to quality.

I will tell you why. 

The word sustainability is heavily overused.

However, at ULMA, we are certain that, besides using natural and recyclable materials and opting for companies that invest in local industry to reduce CO2 emissions, our commitment to sustainability is attributed to the long-term stability of our materials.

The more durable the product, the more sustainable it is, because fewer resources will be used to create a new one. 

Today I am not only going to talk about quality; I will show it to you.

With these works that were completed on Paseo del Espolón in the Spanish city of Soria, where we supplied concealed drainage a whopping 8 years ago.

This system was originally installed in 2013, fast forward 8 years & the slot drainage is as good as the 1st day.

Concealed drainage for iconic pedestrianised boulevards

Paseo del Espolón gave 10,500 square metres back to pedestrians: it became a boulevard on which to walk, enjoy yourself and spend time together.

An increasing number of cities are pedestrianizing their centres, to get rid of the noise and traffic making them more pleasant for people. 

Besides improving the quality of life of the people living in a city, it improves the appearance of the streets and boulevards. It shines the spotlight on the green areas and gardens and they become iconic boulevards. 

In these cases, concealed drainage is the chosen option


If you would like to find out more about this hidden drainage system, drop us a line.

Because this system prioritises appearance, as well as functionality. It ensures that the drainage system goes unnoticed, thanks to the discretion of slot drainage. 

In this project, to meet the exacting requirement and aesthetics needed we prescribed 450 linear metres of URBAN drainage channels with slot grating.
