Advanced Drainage Channels with Cast Iron Edge Rails from Hydro

Advanced Drainage Channels with Cast Iron Edge Rails from Hydro

Presenting the ideal drainage solution for road construction: Hydro MEA® DRAIN Supreme Series consists of an unrivalled, innovative, and sustainable range of advanced road drainage channels made of polymer concrete. Unlike their counterparts, these drainage channels are integrated with a cast iron edge rail to achieve higher aesthetic, durability, and performance values - perfect for applications with heavy wheel load classes between E400-G900.

All road drainage channels from the MEA® DRAIN Supreme Series are made in "U" shapes for higher hydraulic efficiency. Its internal slope plus impermeable and pore-free polymer concrete body enables a more efficient flow of fluids. This is particularly beneficial when seeking heavy rainfall control and preventing flooding.

MEA® DRAIN advanced road drainage channels are available in 100, 200, or 300mm clear opening widths and are made to satisfy various depth options: constant-depth, pre-sloped fall, or stepped fall. They also come with your choice of grate cover, tailored to your design specifications. For higher safety and security, they can be optimised with MEA® CLIPFIX or Hydro High-Flow Profix Grates to provide seamless crossing of vehicles or pedestrians.

Hydro MEA® DRAIN Supreme Series in Action

In Australia, Hydro's MEA® DRAIN Supreme has emerged as the most favoured drainage solution for several roadway developments and upgrades. One of the most remarkable projects recently undertaken is the Northern Road Upgrade, which is part of the government's plan to improve the south-western Sydney link and provide more opportunities for transportation and employment.

Requiring a high-performance drainage solution that will ensure the maximum safety of motorists at all times, the MEA® DRAIN Supreme C300mm Co Cast Iron Edge Rail System was deemed most suitable. Hydro supplied this advanced road drainage channel with a ductile iron high-flow Profix fastening mechanism, which ensured that no parts would shift despite extreme loading and surrounding movement. The large grate holes also enabled more efficient water intake, preventing chances of flooding.
