ACO International Airport Surface Water Drainage, Manhole Covers and Siphonic Roof Drainage
As global market leaders in drainage, ACO has a history of strong innovation and the experience to deliver solutions that meet the demands of the modern aviation industry. ACO products assist airport operators and planners to enhance safety and comfort in airport buildings, in front of the terminal and on the apron.
ACO Polymer Concrete external surface drainage systems combine corrosion resistance with low maintenance costs, ease of installation and versatility making them the ideal solution to many environmental problems encountered with the removal or containment of surface liquids.
ACO Polymer Concrete channel systems are manufactured in numerous widths and depths and can have built in slopes, stepped falls or can be constant depth.
The corrosion resistant qualities of polymer concrete being unaffected by salts, petrol, diesel, oil, many acids and alkalis and virtually non-porous make it the ideal product for use in airport environments where ordinary concrete may be subject to deterioration.
Surface Water Drainage System
ACO Technologies PLC part of the ACO Group based in the U.K. was presented with the Queen's Award for Enterprise - Innovation 2006 - for its new, high-capacity surface water drainage system, ACO Qmax.
ACO took two years to develop the Qmax system, which provides a completely new approach to controlling the run-off of surface water from large open areas such as car-parks, distribution yards and airport runways.
Its unique ovoid-shape and high capacity allow it to quickly drain large volumes of surface water while protecting the main sewer system from flooding and the surrounding environment from contamination due to leakage.
Qmax has also pioneered the concept of 'value-engineering' - a new approach to on-site construction that saves both time and money.

The Airport manhole covers come with easy opening features, giving an ideal solution for man hole covers that need frequent access for a variaty of purposes.
ACO CR Polymer Concrete Sub Frame
The ACO Polymer Concrete CR Sub Frame complete with F900kN ductile iron gratings was developed specifically for use with cast in - situ concrete channels to provide a strong, secure and durable solution by the prevention of loose gratings and the degrading of ordinary concrete at the channel surface.
Installed in airports in Saudi Arabia, Cairo International Airport and recently specified and ordered for the new King Shaka Airport in Durban South Africa.
The CR System has proved to be a simple and cost effect method of ensuring a solution to the surface problems that can be encountered by casting an all concrete channel.
Stainless Steel Drainage Systems
