ACO has just released the industry’s most comprehensive technical handbook and product catalogue.
When selecting trench drains for a public space, factors such as site and hydraulic requirements should be considered to ensure long service life.
ACO’s new Drain Catalogue provides insights into these factors in addition to a comprehensive product selection guide that can help you decide on the site-specific drain for your project.
ACO Pty Ltd is part of the ACO Group, a multinational company that specialises in products for stormwater, wastewater and cable management. ACO has been supplying products and solutions to the Australian construction and building industry for over 25 years, making them one of Australia’s leading drainage solution companies.
ACO Drain® is produced at ACO’s manufacturing facility in NSW. The products are available in an extensive variety of widths, depths, lengths and load ratings with grates to suit, to ensure there is an option to suit every type of project.
ACO – as a global leader and pioneer of the modular polymer concrete trench drain – has launched a comprehensive range of new ACO Drain® systems to deal with the modern challenges that are posed by today’s public space needs.
Pavements and slabs that cater for all types of traffic and weather conditions deliver the most challenging environments for drainage systems. ACO’s new profiled sidewalls provide high body strength and mechanical keying, making ACO’s acclaimed signature Polycrete® Channels the world’s most robust and durable trench drains.
Draining large flat pavements efficiently also poses a significant challenge. ACO’s new signature Polycrete® Channels are V-shaped, ensuring maximum liquid velocities even under low rainfall conditions. Each channel is sloped to ensure that runs with continuous fall can be directed to the stormwater outlet. The result is a more efficient, cleaner and clearer drain.
When selecting trench drains, factors such as site and hydraulic requirements should be considered to ensure a long service life. ACO’s new Drain Catalogue provides insights into these factors in addition to a comprehensive product selection guide to help you decide on the site-specific drain for your project.
The catalogue includes detailed information on product features, specifications, applications, accessories and more for the KlassikDrain, the PowerDrain and the SlabDrain.
The KlassikDrain System is a range of general-purpose trench drain systems with a galvanised steel edge rail and a wide choice of grates in different materials and slot styles up to Load Class D (8-tonne wheel load). Grates are secured by either patented DrainLok or QuickLok boltless locking systems.
- Car parks and garages
- Shopping centres
- Pedestrian areas
- Light industrial areas
- Commercial areas
- Internal applications
The PowerDrain System is a range of heavy-duty trench drains with ductile iron edge rail and a choice of Load Class G (30-tonne wheel load) slotted or Heelsafe® Anti-Slip ductile iron grates, featuring the PowerLok patented barless and boltless locking system.
- Heavy-duty industrial areas
- Petrol stations
- Docks and ports
- Military bases
- Truck stops
The SlabDrain System is a series of shallow trench drains designed for applications where depth is a constraint. All SlabDrain channels are a consistent depth and available in three standard widths.
- Restricted depth areas
- Parking stations
- Elevated slabs
- Outdoor entertainment areas
ACO has an established Technical Services Department with experienced engineers and support staff offering free advice on surface water management. This service is offered with no obligation and is supported with comprehensive, high-quality literature and project-specific technical documentation.
