Information on how to install your HYVOL® surface drianage channels.
1. Setting Up Drainage Channels
Position channels to line and grade on concrete support pads approximately 100mm from each butted joint. Leave until concrete pads have set.
2. Encasement with concrete
Encase drain channels to the minimum dimensions using high density concrete
Increase dimensions of the encasement concrete and reinforce with steel as necessary for the intended load and usage of the channels and site substrate stability.
Encasement concrete should be installed using acceptable engineering standards e.g it should be isolated from adjacent concrete by construction/contraction joints. These should also be applied to control longitudinal shrinkage of the encasement concrete.
