Built In Fall
MEA channels can be supplied in varying depths which, when laid end to end, give a gradual or stepped fall over a given distance. This gives greater water removal characteristics as the speed at which the water is removed is greatly increased.
There are several grating options available depending on the final application and all of the gratings are designed to be aesthetically pleasing in addition to meeting stringent design requirements concerning longevity and dependability.
Standard slot gratings provide for maximum water flow and comes in loadings up to C250. They can be supplied in Galvanised Steel and Ductile Iron depending on weight loading and visual requirements.
SlimSlot gratings have a narrower slot than standard gratings which means they are “Heel Safe” and pedestrian friendly. At C250 loading they are perfect for shared surfaces, such as supermarket car parks, where traffic and pedestrians mix.
The TopSlot Grating system can be fitted to any channel to create a very discrete yet efficient drainage system. The galvanised steel grating is capable of C250 Loading (25 Tonne) and it’s unique shape means that the drains can be used in block paved surfaces without spoiling the aesthetic of the area.
Composite gratings have all of the weight loading characteristics of ductile iron gratings and can carry loads up to C250 but they have the additional advantage of having no inherent scrap value so the chances of them being stolen is significantly reduced. They also fair better than metal gratings in harsh environments such as coastal areas where salt and water can cause oxidisation of metal gratings.
Solid covers serve two purposes; they can be used to create a duct run to contain cables or intermittently in runs of normal gratings on areas where pedestrians are crossing.
