German Embassy, London

German Embassy, London

Althon have recently supplied 85 metres of a bespoke stainless steel slot drain to the German Embassy in London.

We manufactured a bespoke stainless steel drainage channel with perforations to one side of the channel body. This was supplied with a stainless steel mesh grating suitable for pedestrian use.

We were charged with designing a drainage channel suitable for use in a terraced area. This meant the channel had to be extremely shallow but still effective at dealing with the surface water run – off.
