Trading Estate Drainage Channel

Portobello Trading Estate Drainage Channel

Althon have recently completed the supply of our high capacity drainage channel to the new Portobello Trading Estate in Birtley. 

Our largest high capacity channel was used along with an extra heavy bearing reinforced concrete lid unit for use across a large area of concrete heard-standing trafficked by large industrial vehicles.

The Althon 600 drainage channel efficiently drains large surface areas and can be laid flat as the trapezoidal shape of the channel creates its own velocity, draining the run-off surface water to the nearest outlet. With a capacity of 412 litres per metre of channel the system can also be used for the attenuation of water.
