Go With The Flow – MetroDrain Provides A Premium Drainage System

Dealing with surface and standing water is an aspect of any civil engineering or construction project that is specified in from the very start. The task of ensuring that adequate drainage is in place to collect and dispose of excess water fast and efficiently, is a critical part of meeting many building standards.

Here’s where the MetroDrain Premium Drainage system from Naylor can help. MetroDrain is a collection of very strong and very durable HDPE pipes, couplings, junctions and sealing rings. When put together they form a drainage system that meets the stringent drainage demands placed on a wide variety of projects including:

Highways

MetroDrain collects and disposes of surface and sub-surface storm water in line with the specific requirements of the Highways Agency Manual of Contract Documents for Highway Works.

Buildings

It is suitable for non-adopted surface water drains subject to Building Regulations and Standards throughout the UK and is BBA Certificated No: 09/H145

Environmental

It is ideal for use in environmental systems such as pump and sampling chambers, catchpits, soakaways and stormwater attenuation manholes.

Golf Courses and Sports Fields

It provides perfect drainage for sports fields and golf courses and can also be used in the construction of under pitch heating.

Landfill

MetroDrain can be successfully used in landfill applications for leachate drainage and methane gas control.

Agriculture

Also available is N-Drain, a lighter duty general purpose Twinwall Drainage System for Non BBA applications such as agricultural projects.

Why MetroDrain?

MetroDrain is a new generation of HDPW high performance twin wall drainage pipes, designed for use with all non-pressure, surface and sub-surface storm water drainage applications. The smooth bore pipes allow for superior hydraulic flow, whilst the corrugated outer wall provides additional strength and durability allowing the pipes to stand up to the rigours of different applications. Being less brittle, these pipes are less vulnerable to crack propagation, making them ideal for cold weather applications.

In addition, MetroDrain drainage pipes are:

  • Available in carrier or perforated configurations
  • HDPE not PVC/PP
  • British Board of Agreement approved and Highways Agency Compliant
  • Lightweight to allow for easier transport, handling and installation
  • Recognised as a suitable alternative to concrete and clayware pipes
  • Excellent at resisting differential settlement
  • Minimal jointing compared with traditional materials
  • Easily cut to required lengths
  • Optimal environmental credentials
  • Improved abrasion resistance
