The recently opened Travelodge in Western Super Mare has a newly laid asphalted main car park with 47 spaces. The car park is drained by a 60 metre run of RECYFIX® MONOTEC, Hauraton’s new high capacity channel system.
The MONOTEC channels installed in the main Travelodge car park have a nominal grating width of 100mm, an overall height of 380mm and are suitable for a loading category of up to Class D400. The channels provide a cross-section of 355.5cm2 and have a high attenuation volume.
The RECYFIX® 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 channel moulding. The whole unit is made of tough, virtually unbreakable polypropylene (PP) formulated to be very resistant to daily temperature fluctuations from frost conditions to strong sunlight, including the Ultra Violet (UV) spectrum.
PP is naturally resistant to de-icing salt. Complying with the requirements of EN 1433, the PP is given its UV resistance by adding just sufficient carbon black as a stabiliser so that the structural strength of the material is unaffected and a consistent appearance is maintained.
The front asphalted car park, with 15 spaces, at the new Travelodge is drained with over 40 metres of RECYFIX® PRO 100 channels fitted with Hauraton’s FIBRETEC® Class C250, HEELSAFE gratings which have a similar appearance of the MONOTEC grating.
This HEELSAFE grating has super smooth, elliptical slot openings where the moulded bars have slightly raised triangular bosses along their outside edges. As well as providing an elegant appearance, this feature ensures surface water is directed into the slots helping eliminate any cross-flow over the grating which helps optimise the channels attenuation volume.
