ULMA improves the drainage system at Northampton Service Station and Lorry Park

ULMA provided an efficient drainage system to prevent flooding and improve safety at Northampton Service Station and Lorry Park.

The problem was that the drainage system installed in the area did not have sufficient capacity to drain the rainwater, leading to dangerous accumulations of water on the road surface.

Service stations and lorry parks have a constant flow of vehicles. There are also some areas where HGVs turn, making it necessary to guarantee the safety of the installation of the channels in order to prevent breakages and accidents.

In these cases, it is essential to have a consultancy service that, taking into account all the necessary parameters (location, rainfall, surface slope, weight to be borne by the grating (load type) and length of the drainage line), defines the model best suited to the site.

For this project, 250ml of Civil-F polymer concrete channels, model F150K, were installed for load type F900.

Each metre of channel has 8 attachment points, while most channels on the market only have 4.

This results in greater stability and more evenly distributed forces along the entire grating and channel, making them safer and stronger.

This reduces the risk of any breakages or problems. And it also gives the drainage system greater durability.

If you have a project and would like advice on the best drainage system to optimise time and avoid problems, please contact ULMA here.
