Surface drainage

Surface drainage systems are essential for the safe removal of excess water that accumulates on the ground from heavy rainfall. Drainage systems in the form of a channel drain or point drain reliably collects rainwater from impermeable surfaces, transports and discharges it into underground networks.

As channel drainage can be utilised in a range of environments; from airports, industrial and logistic facilities to public squares, the characteristics of the field of application must be taken into account when choosing the appropriate system. 

Find the right system for your project by selecting one of the tabs below from ultra heavy duty to light duty or even bespoke.

Drainage systems for areas subject to extreme loads and dynamic forces

Linear drainage installed within industrial yards, container terminals and airports are often exposed to extreme surface loads and dynamic forces, with a combination of diverse traffic patterns (accelerating, braking, turning), lateral movements and varied wheel configurations.
The channel systems below have proven performance in demanding environments subject to ultra heavy loads & forces.

Drainage systems for areas subject to light loads

When it comes to channel drainage for areas such as roof terraces, flat roofs, balconies and façades, linear drainage needs to be aesthetic, safe, accommodate shallow installation depths and be designed for barrier-free thresholds.

Systems installed within courtyards, and public /landscaped areas can be subject to heavy pedestrian use as well as light commercial traffic, therefore the appropriate channel load should be specified.

HAURATON’s range of systems for light load applications combines hydraulic functionality with elegant design, with a variety of channel depths and gratings available up to C 250.

Customised drainage solutions

Modern architecture can place specific demands on surface drainage in terms of length, width, height and design. Although our standard range of drainage channels are suitable for most applications, projects can require systems to be specially customised to match unique design features and meet specific needs on-site.

We can provide customised drainage solutions to suit specific requirements in terms of aesthetics and functionality. Channel and gratings can be manufactured in a range of materials, with polygon or radial designs for curved installations. A dedicated team works with you from the early design stage to discuss design requirements, right through to production, delivery and on-site installation support.
