KerbDrain Award winning combined kerb and drainage system

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.

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.

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.

Also available is ACO Shallow KerbDrain for use in applications with restricted construction depths. The product is ideal for use in many applications such as highways, car parking and elevated roads and is based on traditional Half Battered kerb stone profiles. The system is suitable for new and renovation projects and has a range of product accessories to provide a comprehensive drainage solution.
