TraffikDrain combines the benefits of Polycrete® Channels with a choice of iron Hi-Flow, Transverse grates or Heelsafe® Anti-Slip grate. Each grate is purpose designed to minimise ponding and other dangers for road users, and are secured with the PowerLok® boltless locking mechanisms that enable quick and easy access for maintenance operations.
Iron Hi-Flo and Transverse grates provide maximum water intake to ensure quick and efficient water removal from the road surface. Heelsafe® Anti-Slip grates ensure pedestrian safety in areas that experience regular foot traffic.
ACO’s TraffikDrain is well suited for projects that require:
- Provision of continuous capture inlets
- Prevention of aquaplaning, property damage, and water splashing onto pedestrians
- Containment of toxins and fuel spills in environmentally sensitive areas.
Areas of application most commonly used in are:
- Motorways and highways
- Streetscapes with shared zones for pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles
- Busways, bus stops and railway interchanges
- Bridge abutments and tunnel portals
- Media strips
- Right-hand turn bays
- Kerbside Gutters
Additional applications, where traditional drainage designs are inadequate:
- Flat pavements and road surfaces
- Restricted road shoulders
- Limited space due to underground services
WHAT MAKES THE ACO TRAFFIKDRAIN SO UNIQUE?
ACO’s TraffikDrain is industry-recommended for the vast array of features it has to offer.
V Profile Channels | Superior to the U-profiled channels, V profile channels promote higher velocities during minor storm events and result in a more hydraulically efficient drain.
Sloped Channel | Metre long lengths provide 40 metres of continuous (0.5%) slope that equates to 5mm of built-in fall per metre. Five neutral channel depths are available to extend run length.
Polymer Concrete | ACO’s first choice material for its durable and lightweight elements. It’s made from a polyester resin binder and reinforced by mineral aggregates and fillers.
Profiled Side Walls | Channel body strength and mechanical keying to concrete encasement.
Ductile Iron Edge Rail | Integrally cast-in rail provides maximum strength and protection for channel body.
SF Sealant Groove | SF Sealant Groove is cast into both ends of the channel that allows for a bead of flexible sealant to be applied at the channel joints. The sealant ensures contaminated water does not infiltrate and damage environmentally sensitive areas.
