GATIC KERBDRAIN: THE LIGHTWEIGHT SOLUTION FOR HEAVY-DUTY DRAINAGE
Gatic drainage products from Alumasc Water management Solutions (AWMS) have a well-established reputation for the use of innovative materials and manufacturing techniques. Recent developments in the recycling industry have enabled the transformation of previously non-recyclable plastics into the most versatile products, and it is through the use of this technology that Gatic have introduced Kerbdrain.
Gatic Kerbdrain is a heavy-duty combined kerb and drainage system (CKD) that provides an efficient and safe method of drainage on potentially any surface or structure with a kerb edge.
Commonly used in retail parks, drive-throughs, distribution yards, along highways and motorways, and within residential housing developments, Gatic Kerbdrain moves away from the concept of two-part systems by offering a single, solid, monolithic system measuring 500 mm in length and weighing only 7 Kg. Not only do these single units negate the need for costly handling equipment, they also present exceptionally quick installation times whilst reducing the risk of personal injury.
Unlike traditional kerb and gully methods where flows compound on the surface, levels on site are delivered to the kerbside usually by way of one direction across-fall/chamber. Run-off is then driven to an outlet hidden within the Kerbdrain channel body, which is resistant to all forms of effluents found in highway situations such as road salts, petrol and diesel.
Kerbdrain is part of the Gatic civil drainage systems range, which, for more than 90 years, has been used to capture, control and return run-off safely into the natural water cycle, contributing directly to wider sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS).
