Apr 13, 2018

Presently, some suppliers and manufacturers offer two types of drainage channel, the plastic type and polymer concrete drainage channel.

But normally the tenders and the end users would require the drainage channel must be according to EN 1433. Then what materials can be chosen for drainge channel's production in EN 1433?

The item 6 in the standard refers to it.

6. Materials

6.1 General

For materials other than those listed in 6.1.1 and 6.1.2 the product shall comply with any relevant provisions valid in the country of use of the product with regard to durablility, e.g UV-resistance, abrasion resistance, fatigue.

NOTE  Any revisions of this standard can specify requirements for durability for other materials.

6.1.1 Drainage channels

Drainage channels, with the exception of gratings and covers, may be manufactured from:

a) flake graphite cast iron

b) spheroidal graphite cast iron

c) cast steel

d) rolled steel

e) stainless steel

f) reinforced or unreinforced concrete

g) synthetic resin concrete

h) concrete with fiber

i) one of the materials a) to f) combined with concrete/synthetic resin concrete with fibre.


6.1.2 Gratings and covers may be manufactured from:

a) flake graphite cast iron

b) spheroidal graphite cast iron

c) cast steel
