Installation devices are used to align channels to create a complete trench run. Once the installation is complete using these devices the concrete is poured around the device and channels. Installation devices allow a single concrete pour.

On-site fabrications are required whenever a trench is to form a corner or junction. All half meter polymer concrete channels have drill-out details on the side to aid the formation of corners and T junctions but all channels can be cut and fabricated to create the desired layout.

Note : When cutting sections of polymer concrete channel, protective eyeglasses, gloves and a respirator mask are recommended.

T junctions

T junctions are when an opening is cut into the side of one channel and another channel is butted up to this opening.

DrainLokDrainLok – barless and boltless locking system
Compatible with KlassikDrain & SlabDrain Grates.

Fast locking device removes the need for bars and bolts and improves the channels hydraulic capacity. The DrainLok mechanism simply clips into the channel edge rail for quick installation.

ACO’s DrainLok grates are fitted with anti–shunt lugs that restrict grate movement when installed, improving durability and longevity of the system.

QuickLokQuickLok – boltless locking system
Compatible with KlassikDrain & SlabDrain Grates.

Comprises a spigot fitted onto the grate and a removable QuickLok bar in the channel, the QuickLok system locks the grate to the channel by aligning the spigot over the bar and applying pressure until they ‘snap’ together.

With no loose bolts or bars, QuickLok provides a secure boltless lock that is still easy to remove for maintenance and cleaning. This saves time and money during installation.

PL clipPowerLok – barless and boltless locking system
Compatible with PowerDrain & SlabDrain Grates.

Fast locking device removes the need for bars and bolts and improves the channels hydraulic capacity. The PowerLok mechanism simply clips into the channel edge rail for quick installation.

ACO’s ductile iron edge rails have anti–shunt lugs that restrict grate movement improving durability and longevity of the system.
