ACO technologies have supplied their RoadDrain Monocast Channel Drainage system at Dublin Port, Ireland.
Dublin Port Company (DPC) wanted to create a new loading yard and terminal that would achieve a robust, reliable and sealed drainage solution that would stand up to the rigours of modern cargo handling.
Given the size and weight of both the cranes and commercial vehicles used for the loading and unloading of cargo, a number of the existing surface water management channels throughout the port began to show signs of fatigue under the intense loading demand placed on gratings.
Manufactured from Vienite®, ACO’s high strength recycled polymer concrete, the product provided a fully monocast solution for Dublin Port was the ACO RoadDrain range.
Manufactured to Load Class F 900, the highest classification available, the RoadDrain range strong enough to handle the extreme point-loading demands posed by day-to-day activity at the port.
It also offers a high intake area thanks to 15mm slots to deliver maximum hydraulic performance.
ACO RoadDrain has a dedicated sealant groove which was sealed with product from the company Sika Bond.
