ACO adds to drainage range with easy to install system

ACO has added two new high-strength composite edge rails to its Qmax range of large capacity slot drainage systems for civils and infrastructure applications.

The two rails consist of the Q-Flow and Q-Guard series, the latter coming with Heelguard channel inlet detail, making it ideal for areas with pedestrian footfall.

As well as providing a durable and long-lasting surface finish, the new rails also aid accurate vertical and horizontal alignment during the laying of long channels runs.

The two new rails are compatible with all ACO Qmax channels, which are available in six sizes, and are available in both black and grey  finishes.

Michelle Osborne, Product Manager at ACO, said: “Excess surface water can be a serious hazard for distribution yards and runways, so it is imperative that it is removed quickly and efficiently.

“Qmax is perfect for these heavy duty applications, and our new composite edge rails will further enhance their aesthetic appeal over the course of the operational life.

“When installing channel drainage over such an extensive area, it is vitally important that the runs are laid as accurately as possible.

“Being just a couple of millimetres out of line per channel can really be magnified over the course of drainage run, resulting in a poor finish.

“However, this should become a thing of the past thanks to the easy-to-install connections between each Qmax composite rail.”

ACO’s Qmax channels not only provide greater flexibility for engineers and designers to optimise hydraulic schemes, but can also help to minimise the number of drainage runs required in a project and greatly simplify the connection to the existing infrastructure.

The larger Qmax channels can also be used to allow effective attenuation in order to reduce stormwater carry over.

Manufactured from Polyethylene (PE), including recycled material, the lightweight material makes ACO Qmax easy to handle and quick to install, yet robust enough to withstand the rigours of typical heavy-duty installations.

The 2m long channel units are easy to install thanks to simple push-fit sealed connections, which help to effectively separate surface pollutants created by vehicle traffic from groundwater.

Step and channel connectors are used to increase storage volume, while ease of maintenance is guaranteed thanks to a range of dedicated access chambers.
