MEA Drainage Systems offer a comprehensive range that includes special channels for airside installation, specifically developed for areas in the F900 load class. The airport, with its airside and landside zones, is one of the specific fields the company has expertise in. Abu Dhabi, Auckland, Dresden, Rotterdam, Vienna, Warsaw, Moscow and many other major airports around the world depend on MEA and its professional approach to airport drainage.
When installing suitable drainage systems, both safety and aesthetic criteria need to be satisfied. Technical and visual requirements for a wide range of different terrain and loading factors need to be taken into account. Only the most robust drainage systems are equipped to cope when used long-term in the challenging environment of an airport. Especially airside, on the apron, taxiways, take-off and landing runways, including the hangars, the load on drainage systems is enormous: immense forces are applied by the movement of aircraft, plus there may be climatic extremes due to geography and the seasons, or tremendous downpours of rain, water from melting snow or fire-fighting, and the risk of aviation fuel spillages during refuelling.
In our product range you will find several drainage systems which are suitable for Airport Drainage.
Wherever heavy loads are on the move, sealed surfaces need to be drained quickly and efficiently, as well as insuring aggressive liquids do not contaminate ground water, MEADRAIN® Supreme literally reigns supreme. Because, for this heavy-duty channel type, the name speaks for the entire series: modern, high strength polymer concrete the material from which the channels are constructed already stands in a class of its own. Integrally cast within the channel, the upper cast-iron edge of MEADRAIN® Supreme guarantees maximum strength even under the most extreme loads. A wide range of nominal widths as well as extensive system accessories for maximum flexibility during planning and installation serve to complement this high-performance linear drainage system, and when it comes to channel gratings, MEADRAIN® Top again offers you a first-rate selection to choose from. Regarding greater planning freedom, maximum construction quality, valuable time and cost savings, MEADRAIN® Supreme is the right solution.
MEARIN drainage channels are manufactured using Sheet Moulding Compound (SMC), a light-weight resin-glass fibre composite weighing 11.8 kg per metre (excluding grating). The light weight nature of the material simplifies all stages of installation. SMC has high mechanical and impact strength as well as outstanding chemical resistance. The composite tolerates temperature variations ranging from frosty conditions to those over 100° C.
Gratings are fitted securely using a 4-point system with no screws. A special tool also makes it easy to remove gratings for maintenance work.
The ingenious profile shape makes the channel body extremely stable, with an extended range of mechanical strength (Classes C250 to E600). It can be used in a great variety of applications.
The body shape of the channel optimises water flow and thus facilitates self-cleaning, even in terrains with low gradients.
A wide range of accessories allows for the design of a reliable and homogeneous system.
The whole of the MEARIN drainage channel range meets the requirements of the EN1433 Standard and carries the CE label.
