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 in 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.
Gratings for the EN System are made from high strength ductile iron and are certified to F900 loading. They allow for the maximum amount of water flow whilst maintaining the highest possible weight loading capability. The gratings can be supplied with ProFix locks or they can be bolted down.
SlimSlot Gratings D400
SlimSlot gratings have a narrower slot than standard gratings which means they are “Heel Safe” and pedestrian friendly. At D400 loading they are perfect for shared surfaces, such as large car parks, where traffic and pedestrians mix.
ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) approved gratings are specifically designed to be wheelchair safe. The diagonal bars allow for even the narrowest of wheels to cross the grating safely without the risk of dropping down the grate. The gratings are available in E600 Loading so can be used in almost any situation.
Composite gratings have all of the weight loading characteristics of ductile iron gratings and can carry loads up to D400 but they have the additional advantage of having no inherent scrap value so the chances of them being stolen is significantly less. 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.
