Filcoten Channel Drains - D400 Class

Filcoten is one of the latest ranges of sustainable channel drainage systems available on the market today. Filcoten is one of many ranges from GATIC, a global market leader in surface water drainage solutions with over 90 years of experience in the research, development, manufacturing and innovation of surface water drainage and access covers. 

Filcoten channel drainage

Filcoten is a channel drainage system from Gatic that is considered a sustainable alternative to many other chanel drainage systems. It is manufactured from lightweight concrete, known as high performance concrete. The high performing concrete within the Filcoten system has high compressive strength, meaning that it can be put under pressure from loading with no damage.

The lightweight concrete that Filcoten is manufactured from has a high level of flexural strength as well as compressive strength – almost double the flexural strength of high performance concrete. This flexural strength means that the concrete will not become deformed under loads, unlike high performance concrete which can shatter and break if put under a sudden load of sudden impact. The flexural strength of Filcoten channel drainage means that it can flex to absorb shock impacts and loads. Another benefit of having high flexural strength is that the product is less likely to be damaged in handling, transportation or installation, resulting in an overall robust product that has a longer lifespan, and helps with substantial cost savings.

Filcoten channel drainage is the only channel drainage product on the market to be manufactured without the use of chemicals, being manufactured from mineral fibres, small mineral particles and renewable energy. It is also 100% recyclable, making it a great product for environmentally conscious and sustainable projects. 

Filcoten channel drainage is made with a smooth, sleek wall finish, and improved dimensional consistency, to improve water flow. Additionally, the lightweight composition makes the installation process easier and quicker. 

Filcoten D400 channel drainage

The Filcoten D400 channel drainage system has been manufactured to ensure that it complies with the D400 drainage classification. The D400 classification means that the drainage system can withstand a load of up to 40 tonnes, making the drainage suitable for areas such as main roads, highways and other areas that experience high levels of traffic, including car parks. 

The Filcoten D400 channel drains are perfect for high traffic areas, because they are strong, durable and with high compressive strength and flexural strength. Additionally, their improved dimensional consistency means that they can handle both high and low quantities of water efficiently.
