Industry and logistics depend on high-performance infrastructure solutions that must meet growing demands. This is especially true for drainage systems and for gateways and passages connecting buildings, industrial facilities or machines. The challenge resides not only in fulfilling norms and standards about safety and accessibility but also to offer economically viable solutions that take into consideration the growing requirements regarding environmental protection. MEA supports various trades in the construction industry with powerful system solutions that can be flexibly adapted to individual requirements on site. They combine maximum functionality with the greatest possible economy.

Reliable drainage systems for industrial buildings and logistics areas outside

The drainage of industrial and logistics areas is facing major challenges. It must cope with increasingly frequent heavy rain events and reliably discharge correspondingly large amounts of precipitation in a short time. MEA drainage channels, in combination with rain water retention, treatment and infiltration systems contribute to the protection of the environment, of the infrastructures and the groundwater thus relieving the surrounding sewage system. MEA Water Management products offer economical solutions for the complex tasks of drainage.


The MEADRAIN EN / ENS drainage channel is made of high-quality polymer concrete. It is resistant to chemical substances and free of capillaries for a rapid drainage of water and dirt particles. The MEADRAIN DM drainage channel was developed for the cross drainage of streets and highways. Its monolithic construction impresses with its performance, durability and minimal maintenance effort. The trench tunnel MEASTORM stores a defined amount of water and releases the excess water in a controlled manner in the ground or the sewer system. It is extremely resilient and can also be installed in areas that are exposed to heavy loads from heavy traffic.

Steel construction solutions for machine access, walkways and stairs

Nowadays, industry and logistics can no longer do without economical steel construction solutions. Gratings play a central role for machine access, walkways and stairs. They form the backbone for standardized, safe and resilient solutions. MEA Metal Applications is the specialist for gratings and sliding fittings and an experienced partner for steel and industrial construction. MEA supplies products and system solutions with which professionals can work easier, faster and more safely.


Industrial gratings from MEA are in great demand because of their high level of installation security. With the dimension 1000×1000 mm, it is structurally guaranteed that the bearing rod always rests on the substructure. This corresponds to the recommendations of the employers’ liability insurance association and DIN 24537-1. This eliminates liability risks and reduces the risk of accidents due to incorrectly placed grids. Anti-slip gratings, which comply with BGR 181 and DIN 51130, offer a high level of work safety.

In certain situations, the requirements placed on the material are particularly high: this is where stainless steel comes in place. MEA stainless steel gratings made of V2A or V4A steel combine functional advantages such as corrosion resistance and hygiene with an aesthetic appearance. The stainless-steel gratings are used in beverage and food production as well as in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries.


With the all-inclusive MEASTEP stair kit and the innovative MEASTEP XSL program for stairs made of gratings with matching platforms and intermediate landings, MEA offers the best solution for all stairs in an industrial environment, including emergency staircases. The MEAFLOOR grating covers ensure privacy from above and below. They dampen the impact noise and provide more safety and comfort on walkways and stairs.
