HAURATON Channels at the new Regional Exhibition Ground
This is a first in HAURATON’s nearly 50 year history: almost 5 km of drainage channels, which are to be integrated in a construction site. By the autumn of 2007 the new regional exhibition ground will open at the gates of the regional capital.
HAURATON has been involved with the project for the regional exhibition ground right from the start; the work with the planning office responsible for it started as early as the design phase. HAURATON put design proposals forward very early on, which were then developed step by step according to static and hydraulic requirements. The result was a harmonious drainage system comprising various products, which fulfils all the requirements of function and design.
The large surface areas and loading bays between the individual exhibition halls are drained mainly by FASERFIX SUPER 200 channels with galvanised GUGI iron mesh grating. They have a high hydraulic performance and keep all the water away from the buildings.
The lines of drains at the entrances to the halls are each enhanced with FASERFIX BIG SL 300. The way into the halls is at ground level over these areas. They are in frequent use and must withstand the highest of loads. FASERFIX BIG SL channels have edge protection of galvanised steel and are ideally suited to this field of installation. The GUGI iron mesh gratings with a nominal width of 300 mm ensure that no water can enter into the halls.
Artistic features are provided by lots of trees, which were planted in tree islands. FASERFIX SUPER KS channels 100 with galvanised mesh gratings are arranged around these tree islands so that dirty water cannot do any damage to the plants.
