Standard 'Designer' range

The ‘Designer’ range comprises a selection of pedestrian friendly grates and continuous slot inlets compatible with ACO’s precast modular Polycrete® Channels and fabricated stainless steel trench drains. Systems are available in a variety of widths, depths, lengths and load ratings suitable for urban pavements and protecting buildings from stormwater.

ACO offers the industry the widest range of slotted lids in both stainless steel and galvanised steel for standard widths up to 200mm.

Heelsafe Anti-slip Criteria

Versatility for pavement design

Draining flat pavements in the urban environment is challenging. The 0.5% internal slope in ACO’s modular channels help to minimise undulations in the pavement for pedestrian safety.

ACO’s Polycrete® Channels provide a continuous sloped run in flat pavements.

  • 40 metres in one direction (end outlet)
  • 80 metres in two directions (central or end outlets)

See ACO’s pavement design guidelines, to learn more about the integrating drainage for safe pavements.

Restraining Tops in Situ

Each top is designed so that brick pavers fit directly against the slot. The first paver course adjacent to the channel/slot should be set in mortar.

Available as part of a complete drainage system

  • Continuous discreet slotted inlets for 100mm and 200mm modular channels with 0.5% built-in fall within the channel.
  • Single, double or twin slots are available with access units for easy maintenance.
