The re-built athletics facilities at Harrow School included an IAAF-standard running track, facilities for long jump, high jump, discus and all the main athletics events, plus a water jump for the steeplechase and an area for the pole vault event – a relatively rare feature in UK school athletics facilities.

Hauraton SPORTFIX components installed at the Harrow School sports complex include; drainage channels around the edge of the running track, sand traps and soft kerb edging around the long jump pit and a water jump kit on the steeplechase track.

At any time in the UK, rain can stop play and on tennis hard courts the build-up of water can take some time to run away if attention has not been paid to the surface water drainage requirement. At Harrow School tennis courts this is not a problem as a discreet drainage channel run located just below the net efficiently drains away any excess rainwater.

Over the years Hauraton have built up a fund of knowledge, second to none, of how to drain sports areas be they soccer grounds, athletic tracks or tennis courts.

Other components in the SPORTFIX range include; Electrical distribution shafts, Service channels for cable management, pitch dish edging components and drainage channels specifically designed for artificial turf pitches.
