Easy handling right down to the last detail, combined with the highest quality. Technical details like for example the proven 'V' profile or the hexagonal shape of the side walls satisfy all of the demands that are made on a contemporary drainage channel. The high-speed flow and the good self-cleaning property minimize the cost of conserving and maintaining the channel system. The tongue-and-groove connection where the channel begins and ends enables this system to be installed simply and conveniently.
Flat roofs have numerous advantages; however, they must often master an enormous structural challenge. Safety, fire protection and thus the issue of roof drainage are the top priorities in design and construction.
To select a suitable product for the roof area, the below points are to be considered during planning & designing:
- Water inflow coming into the channel
- Catchment area
- Channel span & size
- Loading capacity
- Rainfall intensity
- Outlet positions
- Actual site conditions
- Other consultant designing details

In the case of parking deck drainage a differentiation is made between external and internal parking decks (multi-storey car parks, underground car parks, ramps, entrance and exit areas). Parking deck gullies and parking deck drainage channels made of cast iron or stainless steel that deal with substantial quantities of rainfall reliably and easily cope able with the loads they are subjected to by vehicles, rainwater and, in the winter, snow accumulations on cars and in their wheel housings should be considered. Not only the parking deck drainage system, but also the waterproofing between it and the subsoil or substrate must fulfil various criteria:
- Resistance to high structural and mechanical loads and chemical exposure
- Secure, reliable and durable waterproofing and seals
- Alkali resistance
