Gatic adds Filcoten channel drainage to MicroDrainage software

Filcoten channel drainage added to MicroDrainage platform

  • 22 Jun 2017

Gatic Civil Drainage has added its surface water channel drainage product, Filcoten, to the most recent software update of XP Solutions’ MicroDrainage 2017. 

MicroDrainage is the industry standard software for civil engineers working on surface water and external drainage calculations, allowing users to detail and design fully integrated storm water and foul water drainage systems.

The software provides users with a user-friendly interface that allows interaction with third party CAD software, in addition to an auto-design and editing facility.

The addition of Filcoten in the 2017 update follows on from the inclusion of Gatic’s Slotdrain channel drainage last year. 

Gatic Sales Director Martin Neale commented: “We’re extremely pleased that the latest update now includes our innovative ranges of surface water drainage products.

“[MicroDrainage] is perfect for running cost variations that help create work programmes and enable civil engineers to cost engineer both efficiently and effectively. Its ability to automatically calculate excavation and refill volumes makes it a powerful tool for producing quantities and schedules too.”

Paul Ramshaw, VP President of XP Solutions EMEA adds: “We are pleased to add Gatic’s Filcoten channels to the MicroDrainage library of stormwater products. 

By being able to specify specific manufacturer products, users can design and simulate drainage networks far more accurately – ensuring MicroDrainage’s status as the industry-standard drainage design software for civil engineers, planning departments and house-builders alike.”
