Precast Concrete Drainage Channel


How to select the right precast drainage channel

Here at JP Concrete we are regularly asked for our advice on choosing the right concrete drainage solutions.

Precast drainage channels provide a durable and robust system for managing waste and water flow. They can be easily installed and they come in different sizes and with different cover options, making them a popular option within our concrete product range.

Using our vast experience and expertise within the JP Concrete team, we work closely with our customers to ensure that they choose a product that is right for their project. We listen to their requirements and provide our recommendations for draining solutions, helping them to be sure that they end up purchasing a concrete product that will work for them.


What are precast drainage channels used for?

Concrete draining channels can be provided for many different uses but, more typically, they are used for transporting water or waste, either for disposal or for recycling. For disposal purposes, precast drainage channels are an efficient way of encouraging water flow or waste to travel in a particular direction. The water or waste can then be disposed of quickly and easily.

For recycling purposes, the water can be engineered to travel in a certain direction or towards a particular object to allow the water to be reused for alternative uses. Either way, precast drainage channels are a fantastic way of managing water flow to ensure that the water can either be disposed of or reused in an efficient and effective way.

Precast concrete drainage channels are used by a wide range of organisations. Sports stadiums often invest in drainage channels in order to keep excess water from the track-side. You will also often find precast drainage channels at many airports as they use them to keep their foot-ways clear of water to improve customer safety. Supermarkets and public car parks often have precast drainage channels on site to reduce the amount of surface water in the customer car parks, to protect the customers and their safety.

Precast concrete drainage channels are perfect for a variety of purposes. They provide a flexible and reliable solution to managing water flow and, providing you choose the right type of product, they will not let you down. Choosing the right product means asking the experts and that’s exactly what the JP Concrete team is here for.


How are the precast draining channels installed?

Once you have consulted with the JP Concrete team, you will then be able to fit and install your concrete drainage channel.

Our precast drainage channels have been designed with rapid installation in mind and they can be assembled quickly and easily. Fitted together with a spigot and socket joint which can then be sealed, our channels are made from the highest quality concrete and you can be sure that they have been built to last.


What size do the precast drainage channels come in?

To give you extra flexibility and options, our channels are available in two standard sizes: 1000mm wide x 1000mm high x 2400mm long, or 810mm wide x 500mm high x 2400mm long. However, we understand that sometimes you will need something a little larger for your project, so we can also provide additional sizes on request if necessary.

If you’re not sure which size you need, our team members will be happy to give their advice and recommendations.

We can also supply precast end units, which are available on request. If you’re looking for slatted covers to go with your concrete drainage channels, we can also supply these. The covers are available in two types: standard and vehicle loading and we can also supply custom-made solid covers if necessary.
