Advantages of Integrated Drainage Channels in Municipal Applications

There are two common types of drainage channels: point drainage channels and linear drainage channels. As cities develop, point drainage channels are no longer able to meet the current urban drainage needs and are only suitable for small, localized areas with low drainage requirements. Therefore, in the design of municipal drainage systems, linear drainage channels are often chosen for their excellent drainage performance, effectively addressing urban flooding and waterlogging issues.

Integrated drainage channels are a type of linear drainage channel that is typically used in combination with catch basins and end caps. They are optimized based on ordinary linear drainage channels and offer improved performance in multiple aspects. Currently, integrated drainage channels are widely used in municipal projects, urban cross-cutting trenches, tunnels, and other high-load-bearing areas, effectively ensuring the safety of vehicle passage.

In terms of structure, conventional linear drainage channels consist of a channel body and a cover plate, while integrated drainage channels combine the two into a single unit. This design enhances the overall load-bearing capacity of the drainage channel, preventing cover plate displacement or jumping during high-speed vehicle travel, thus improving vehicle safety and reducing noise generated by vehicles passing over. The integrated design of the drainage channel also facilitates installation, greatly enhancing on-site construction efficiency.

In terms of drainage efficiency, the inner walls of integrated drainage channels are seamlessly connected, reducing the resistance to water flow within the channel and thereby enhancing its drainage capacity. Moreover, the integrated drainage system includes catch basins that can connect to the drainage channel in multiple directions, allowing for phased distribution of flow into the municipal drainage network, ensuring the maximum water collection function of the drainage channel.

In terms of appearance, integrated drainage channels can be customized in various colors to match different road paving requirements and blend in with the surrounding environment and architectural style, thus achieving a better visual effect.

In terms of operation and maintenance, integrated drainage channels are typically made of corrosion-resistant, high-strength materials with strong seismic resistance. Reinforcing columns are placed on the sides of the channel body, and the upper edge of the cover plate can be reinforced with steel structures, resulting in a higher load-bearing capacity. They can be applied to ground drainage requirements ranging from load class C250 to F900, offering a longer service life and being less prone to damage or frequent repairs. In case of significant damage to the integrated drainage channel, when it needs to be repaired by isolating the flow, an end cap can be directly installed at one end of the channel to reduce the impact of water flow on the repair process, significantly improving repair efficiency. Furthermore, the materials used for integrated drainage channels make them easier to clean, as debris is less likely to adhere to the channel’s surface. Debris can flow into the catch basin and regular cleaning of the catch basin ensures the cleanliness of the drainage channel.

In summary, the safety, stability, high functionality, and unique prefabricated construction of integrated drainage channels guarantee high levels of safety and stability in surface drainage applications for all transportation roads. Currently, integrated drainage channels are widely used in domestic race tracks, demonstrating exceptional performance whether vehicles are passing at high speeds or carrying heavy loads.
