The right surface drainage channels at Trafford Point with Hauraton

  • 20 Jul 2018

Located near the M60 and M62 motorways, T2 Trafford Point is a newly developed distribution facility on the edge of Trafford Park, Manchester featuring surface drainage on its office car park access road and service yard space from Hauraton.

The specification was for high capacity and very robust channel systems, which can withstand the daily passage of cars as well as the massive twisting forces exerted by the tyres of manoeuvring HGVs.

Hauraton

Hauraton RECYFIX® MONOTEC 200/450 channels were installed in the asphalt car park. With a nominal grating width of 200mm (Channel internal dimension) and an overall height of 450mm a channel provides a cross-section of 746.1 centimetres squared, so the 134 metres of channel installed in the car park has a total water capacity of a little over 9996 litres and a loading category of up to Class D400.

The MONOTEC one metre long channel component is of a sturdy monolithic design, where the HEELSAFE grating and the tongue and groove linking system are integral to the tough, virtually unbreakable polypropylene (PP) moulding.

In addition to the car park drainage, two sizes of RECYFIX® HICAP® channels were also installed in the concreted service yard; 78 metres of HICAP 150 and 120 metres of HICAP 300.

Both PP moulded channel sizes were supplied with factory fitted 28mm wide slotted ductile iron gratings for Class F900 loading category.

The 198 metres of channel installed in the service yard has a total water capacity of just over 24156 litres.

With a maximum channel weight of 23,4kg per unit, both the RECYFIX® MONOTEC and HICAP channels were well within the weight limitation for manual lifting so made the contractors job on site just that little bit easier.

For a given area to be drained, these ranges of high capacity channels also mean fewer channel runs, less excavation work, reduced foundation concrete needed and substantially less after care; benefits appreciated by the groundwork contractor, PP O’Connor and site manager.

All Hauraton surface water drainage systems’ comply with European Standards (hENs) and carries the CE mark.
