Manuka Oval, Canberra, ACT
Manuka Oval is Canberra’s premier venue for AFL and Cricket in the ACT. A recent refurbishment added temporary seats and a new media and corporate facility. The Hawke and Bradman stands, entry facilities and the playing field were also upgraded.
Project Design Brief
Designers faced several ponding issues around the edge of the playing field and required a durable and easy to maintain trench drainage system. A trench drain would remove surface water from the newly contoured playing surface and from the new spectator facilities.
- KlassikDrain’s Polycrete Channels comprise an integrally cast galvanised steel rail
which provides a straight restraining edge for the grass
- KlassikDrain’s Polycrete Channels come with Quicklok boltless locking mechanisms
to facilitate quick access and locking to the trench drain for easy maintenance
- Composite Slotted Heelsafe Anti-Slip grates meet class D210KN – AS 3996 and
are durable enough to withstand traffic from mowers, tractors and rollers
