Project Design Brief
Designers wanted to ensure surface water was captured effectively before it left the site without impacting on the surrounding transport infrastructure. Fully loaded fire trucks impart considerable wheel loads on pavements and taking into account the high volume of traffic coming out of the site, the drainage system needed to be robust and extremely durable.
- The 0.5% slope of the PowerDrain S200K system ensures the level slabs could be drained efficiently for vehicle safety
- The iron intercept Heelsafe Anti-Slip grate is designed to withstand the extra heavy duty traffic
- The intergrally cast ductile iron edge rail provides a solid restraint for the slab and a robust wearing edge for the constant traffic
