Sifonika provides design and consulting services through a highly specialized team with a cumulated experience in the desk drainage sector for over 10 years.
Our Technical and Management Team has personally participated in the design and management of the siphonic system of such iconic works as the T4 Barajas, Expo Building in Caja Magica in Madrid, Logistics C. of IKEA in Valls, Fira of Barcelona, Airbus hangars in Seville and Illescas, Altas Palmas Complex in Seville, Parador Atlantis in Cadix, The wind tunnel in Bilbao, Hislabor in Valladolid, Palacio Congresos in Coruña, Coca-Cola Silo in Madrid, etc..
BECAUSE TIMES HAVE CHANGED...…
More and more we face a combination of three factors that make the use of technically and technologically advanced solutions in the evacuation of storm water from buildings essential.
• Rain intensities have increased and alternating periods of drought followed by torrential rains with great destructive power occur more frequently. This phenomenon associated with climate change should be taken into account when designing a protection cover.
Especially in countries like Spain where rainfall intensity parameters established by the CTE must always be considered as a minimum implementation. I.e., meet the minimum according to the CTE may be insufficient in many cases if you stick to the actual experience of short and intense rainfall (generalised "cold drop" or "new climate") that are happening in Spain with increasing frequency.
This "new climate" is the way we want to bring the focus on the problem of adapting the designs to the real climate data that a building will face throughout its life: we do not intend to discuss the existence of climate change but alert to adequately project the actual exposure which the buildings face.
• New buildings, be they logistical, industrial or infrastructure tend to have higher vain and greater pending on desks, which increases in direct proportion the flow to evacuate and the necessary evacuation speed.
• An unstoppable trend towards eco-sustainability of buildings takes us to recycle rainwater increasingly. The siphon system, with its inherent ability to concentrate the flow evacuated at one point, is the reference system and in all countries where there is a clear awareness of the need to capture and exploit rainwater.
These factors, together with the known and traditional advantages of the siphonic systems in relation to the greater protection they provide to the roof, the absence of pending of their collectors and the large decrease in the number of downpipes, total meters and diameters of pipes to be used, make that such systems are an option increasingly used for all types of building.
…TWO BIG BLOCKS OF HIGH VALUE SERVICE
From Sifonika we propose two ways of action designed especially for designers and the world of prescription:
1.- Free training seminars that can be taught in person or digitally (webinar). We are happy to further in explaining the siphonic system and help resolve all doubts that may arise in relation to the use of siphonic systems.
2 - A free "Express Service" of preliminary design and quote of a price for our first "turnkey" service in less than 24 hours that includes all aspects of the system from its technical conception to installation and warranty, going through all intermediate stages of detailed engineering, supply, prefabrication and Project Management.
