KerbDrain
Introduction to the system

ACO KerbDrain is an award winning combined kerb and drainage system specifically designed and developed to form an integral part of any modern, sustainable surface water management solution. It is the first combined kerb drainage system of its kind to use recycled materials and be independently certified and Kitemarked to BS EN 1433: 2002. The one-piece system is suitable for a wide range of applications including major and minor highways, car parks, and commercial and urban landscaping.

ACO KerbDrain provides many versatile solutions for both SUDS schemes and traditional drainage systems. Engineers and designers are able to combine the benefits of both “hard” and “soft” SUDS to achieve the key elements of quality, quantity and amenity.image

Since its launch in the late 1990’s, over 750,000m of ACO KerbDrain has been supplied to a wide variety of projects in both the UK and mainland Europe. In recognition of ACO KerbDrain’s ground breaking one-piece design, the system was awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation in 2001.

ACO KerbDrain has a range of units to match HB1, HB2 and 45° splayed profiles, and a selection of depths and lengths to meet the hydraulic and performance requirements of many highway or drainage schemes.

The system also benefits from an extensive range of complementary and problem solving components including perforated and flush centre stones, drop kerbs, radius and mitred units, internal angles, quadrants, and bus stop units.

ACO KerbDrain meets all specification requirements:

- Fully compliant to the Specification for Highway Works
- Kitemarked to BS EN 1433:2002
- Certified by a notified body to BS EN 1433: 2002 Load Class D 400
- CE marked by a notified body
