imeasv1000 Industrial Channel Drain

MEA SV1000

SV1000 is the most versatile of all the systems as it includes weight loadings from A15 up to E600 and can therefore be used for domestic, commercial and industrial applications. The system offers excellent value for money and multiple grating options make it the perfect option for city centre applications where both pedestrians and vehicles converge.

The channel is available in multiple depths and can be supplied with built in linear or stepped fall. Grating options include ADA wheelchair safe gratings and heel safe pedestrian gratings as well as all standard slot gratings. Grating materials include galvanised steel, ductile iron and composite depending on your weight loading and project requirements.


MEARIN EXPERT is the heavy duty version of MEARIN PLUS and is capable of up to F900 loading. It is made from the same extremely versatile and highly resilient GRP which is dimensionally stable, heat-resistant, abrasion-resistant and resistant to chemical attack.

The channel is available in widths from 100mm to 300mm and can be fitted with a variety of different gratings in both composite and metallic materials.


The EN range encompasses multiple widths from EN1000 at 100mm wide to EN4000 at 400mm wide. All of the EN range is rated to F900 loading and is designed for the heaviest of industrial applications.

The special polymer concrete from MEA is world renowned for its remarkable physical properties and chemical resistance. This makes all MEA systems reliable and versatile even in the most demanding conditions.


The newly developed DM range is a heavy duty monolithic design, available in widths of 100mm, 150mm and 200mm. This drainage system represents the very latest channel design, it meets all the requirements for road and motorway building and is available in all load ratings up to, and including, F900. The DM system was developed to meet the special cross drainage requirements of roads and motorways.

The one-piece, polymer concrete design makes for quick, easy installation and means minimal maintenance is required. The polymer concrete material and the high quality design means the product has an extremely long life span, even in constant heavy duty applications and extreme weather conditions. All of these factors make for one of the most cost effective and affordable drainage systems on the market.

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.  

Slotted Gratings

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 Gratings

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

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

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.


Sump Unit

Sumps or silt boxes can be located either at the end of a run or in the middle and their purpose is to catch silt and debris before it goes in to the drains below. Sump units have pre-marked ‘knockouts’ on the sides which can be punched out in order to connect up plastic drain pipe. The internal silt bucket can be easily removed, cleaned and replaced as part of the maintenance programme.


End Caps

End caps come in different depths to match the different channel depths. They are used to start and finish each run of channel.

End Cap Outlet

Every channel has a ‘knock-out’ on the bottom which allows for a vertical outlet pipe to be connected, however, in cases where the outlet needs to run horizontally an end cap outlet can be used. The outlet has an exposed spigot pipe so it can be easily connected to the rest of the drainage system
