ACO has developed products especially for multilevel parking. These were designed in such a way that the special requirements for the drainage of parking garages are met.
Parking Garage Entrance – In order to prevent damage, parking garage entrances in particular must remain dry. In addition, access ramps are among the most heavily frequented and polluted areas in underground garages. Accordingly, particularly resistant channel solutions are required, which must also be tailored to the special features of ramps.
Low Ceiling Construction – It is known that space is used to the maximum in multi-story car garages. This already has an effect on the general planning of multilevel parking garages. The ceiling construction on parking decks is particularly low. Of course, the drainage channels and drains must also meet these special requirements and be designed lower.
Sundecks – In the event of heavy rain, the drainage system must also be able to drain off large amounts of rainwater quickly and safely. Also note that sundecks are exposed to direct sunlight. With particularly resilient channels, you can avoid possible damage and malfunctions
Maneuvers & Parking – When planning, also bear in mind that hundreds of maneuvers are carried out in a parking garage every day. This not only affects the surfaces. In the event of unfortunate parking attempts, pipes or columns can also be approached. Therefore, these should also be particularly resistant and not dent or bend.
Several ACO product recommendations include:
Shallow depth trench drain systems in 4” (100 mm), 8” (200 mm) & 23” (300 mm) internal widths
For applications in which the trench drain will be positioned above an impermeable membrane or waterproofing
Steel-edge, modular trench systems in 4” (100 mm), 8” (200 mm) & 12” (300 mm) internal widths
Heavy-duty iron edged, modular trench systems in 4” (100 mm), 8” (200 mm) & 12” (300 mm) internal widths
