DRAINAGE CHANNELS: MEA SOLUTIONS AT A GLANCE
MULTI-MATERIAL COMPETENCE FOR NEEDS-BASED SOLUTIONS
We are the specialists when it comes to draining surface water and other liquids quickly and as completely as possible from the surface into the drainage system: for the protection of people, buildings and traffic routes. Whether for road longitudinal drainage or as an architectural design element with corresponding grates: We offer an extensive range of drainage channels for all loading classes (A 15 – F 900) and drainage systems for all areas of application – also customised.
Thanks to our multi-material competence and user knowledge, we can always offer you the optimum drainage system to suit your needs: The versatile MEA portfolio includes drainage channels made of fibreglass composite, polymer concrete, concrete and steel as well as all necessary accessories and drainage elements.
WHETHER ITS GRP, POLYMER CONCRETE OR CONCRETE – ONE THING IS ALWAYS THE SAME: THEY ARE SOLUTION-ORIENTED
Depending on the intended use and application, the specific advantages of the various materials can be optimally utilized: Steel, for example, is ideally suited for facade drainage and elegant drainage channel covers. Glass-fibre reinforced composite (GRP) can be used universally and is ideal for the drainage of roads, car parks, multi-storey car parks, and similar. Drainage systems made of polymer concrete offer maximum design freedom with the highest loading classes, these drainage channels are much easier to install and transport due to their low weight compared to concrete.
DRAINAGE CHANNELS FOR CAR PARKS, MULTI-STOREY CAR PARKS AND UNDERGROUND GARAGES
In public places and highly frequented areas such as parking lots at or in shopping centers, it is important that drainage runs smoothly. MEA offers drainage solutions for every situation in a broad range of parking areas.
The drainage channel MEARIN PLUS F is particularly suitable for multi-storey car parks or underground garages, especially in the ramp area, due to its flat height. The installation of this drainage channel body does not require a low installation height and thus saves costs in the planning of parking garages thanks to a lower constructive height of parking decks. Due to the GRP material properties, this drainage system will also be resistant and rust-free for years.
The MEARIN PG EVO line drainage specially developed by MEA is ideally suited for the parking garage drainage: This drainage channel offers the advantage that it can be installed in mastic asphalt (MEARIN PG EVO AS) as well as in OS coated floor (MEARIN PG EVO OS). In addition, the reinforcement and statics are not affected when the PG EVO is inserted, and its flat height makes it easy to use regardless of the previously used system.
External parking areas such as those in front of hospitals or supermarkets must be drained in a safe and environmentally friendly manner: MEARIN and MEADRAIN S line drainage solutions are used here. Our MEACLEAN PRO product series also enables a nature-friendly and decentralised drainage of rainwater, as the system filters the water of chemical and biological substances, and discharges pure water into nature or the sewage system. The perfect solution for seepage and retention of rainwater in large areas is the new MEASTORM Rigolen tunnel system that is easy to install and maintain.
DRAINAGE SOLUTIONS FOR ROADS AND MOTORWAYS
The drainage channel MEADRAIN DM was developed for the special requirements of the cross drainage of roads and highways developed. Due to its monolithic design it is extremely stable and maintains its form for a long time. The MEADRAIN DM channel range is complemented by the MEADRAIN EN line drainage. With loading classes up to F900, this channel system can be perfectly used in highly loaded and highly frequented areas such as service areas, car parks or technical facilities.
RACE TRACK DRAINAGE
In order to effectively prevent aquaplaning, the MEA range for racetracks offers drainage channels MEADRAIN DM as well as MEADRAIN EN/ENS : These high-quality gutters with loading class F 900 impress with their long service life and can drain even large amounts of precipitation quickly.
AIRPORT DRAINAGE (AIR SIDE)
The most resistant drainage channels must be installed in the area of the airport: MEADRAIN EN/ENS made of polymer concrete. Ideal for heavy duty areas up to loading class F 900 this drainage channel offers a very long service life. Its lateral ribs allow it to be optimally anchored in the concrete bed. You is absolutely frost-proof, wear-free and low-maintenance.
DRAINAGE CHANNELS FOR PORTS AND CONTAINER TERMINALS
In the spatially limited facilities where containers are handled with an integrated operational structure, the port infrastructure is extremely burdened. Only the most resistant drainage channels such as the E600 drainage channels from the line drainage series MEARIN EXPERT , MEADRAIN SV, SG, SE or if necessary F900 drainage channels like those of the line drainage MEADRAIN EN/ENS can withstand the daily and virtually uninterrupted stress resulting from the movement of thousands of containers with trucks or forklifts.
MEA offers several system solutions specially designed for these extreme loads. The quick-fixing mechanisms of the grates allow for quick and easy maintenance of the gutter lines, and thus enables the daily transit traffic without any disruptions.
TRAM AND RAIL DRAINAGE CHANNELS
Cross drainage of rail systems is a fundamental requirement for the safety of tram traffic. MEA offers an innovative solution that meets the technical requirements for the installation and operation of a tramway network: MEA RAIL is the drainage solution made of polymer concrete with a cast iron frame, specially designed for the drainage of tram rails. Thanks to the modular design, a single system MEA RAIL can be used for several track widths. Our flexible and modern production allows a project-related individual production of the channel elements.
SUSTAINABLE DRAINAGE SOLUTIONS FROM MEA
The “environmental” topic also has high priority at MEA, and is at the focus of all drainage solutions. With our innovative MEACLEAN drainage channel we help to remove pollutants from the groundwater through the drainage channel body. The treatment of surface water in the heavily frequented traffic areas is implemented in an environmentally friendly way with the help of MEACLEAN, through its filter system and the multi-stage substrate technology.
In recent years, precipitation levels have been increasing due to climate change, which means that in many cases water can no longer seep away naturally. Our new environmentally friendly drainage solution MEASTORM Rigolen tunnel that is designed specifically for water retention and seepage, captures, stores and disperses water that cannot be removed through seepage alone. This enables the preservation of groundwater, which can even be used at a later time.
