At Allproof we believe in being environmentally conscious in the manufacturing of our drainage products. We are proud to supply locally made products from locally sourced recycled material. With this in mind we have now introduced the 200mm clear opening commercial channel drain made from 100% recycled plastic.
Our philosophy is to keep all design and manufacturing in house as much as possible. We have a team of product designers, tool makers, engineers, fabricators and the facilities to mould and assemble our drainage products. These factors allow us to maintain excellent stock levels and reduce our reliance on offshore production and shipping.
Production of our products takes place at our head office in Auckland, we distribute Australia wide through our two facilities in Melbourne, Victoria and Brisbane, QLD. The logistics between these locations are greatly reduced and more reliable from other offshore manufacturing locations.
Design & Production of our New Commercial Channel Drain
The team noted an opening in the market for a high-capacity medium duty plastic strip drain. From concept to finished product the 200mm commercial channel drain took 12 months to complete. The result is a durable and easy to install linear drainage system that is suitable for casting into concrete or with pavers.
This excellent trench drain comes with a selection of grates including a black plastic (GFP) grate that is heelproof. This channel drain grate is resistant to all environmental factors, retains its finish, durable and UV resistant, designed for Australian conditions. We also offer a cast iron (HCI) drainage grate that has been tested for a class D load rating for commercial traffic in accordance with AS3996. Additionally, there is a stainless-steel wedge wire option for class B vehicle traffic and R11 slip rated (AS4586) providing an ideal solution for pedestrianised areas in urban street planning.
The system includes an inline sump for sediment catchment. This retains the aesthetics of a linear channel drainage system without interrupting the visible line and removing the need to install separate stormwater pit collection points.
The channels clip together removing the need for joiners or separate corner pieces making it a fast and easy system to build. We have incorporated optional rebar channel levelling clips into this product creating a user friendly and quick to install system. Simply layout the drainage system, clip together (knocking out corners as required), position rebar into the ground through the clips and raise the channel to the desired height. No haunching or site mixed concrete necessary, but can be used if this method is preferred.
