How to install a channel drainage system

In addition to the extensive specification information and installation instructions provided on our website in PDF format for each channel drainage system, Metal Projekt Polska would also like to offer this visualisation to explain how to install a channel drainage system step by step.

The main questions encountered during a MPP Channel drainage system purchase are as follows: (When in doubt ask your expert MPP dealer to help you make the right choice and calculation)

  • Where is the channel drainage installed?
  • What height do I need?
  • How many linear metres do I need?
  • What accessories do I need to provide?
  • What resistance is required?

 

In this visualisation, we install the Alu Side-Line on a polymer channel. Because there are several manufacturers of polymer channels, please refer to the installation instructions provided by your chosen supplier.

Step 1:

When installing the polymer channel, take the height of the Alu Side-Line into account. The end-piece must be installed 3mm below the surface to ensure proper drainage.

Step 2:

The Alu Side-Line can be placed on the installed polymer channel or pre-assembled to the channel where required. The pre-assembled ‘outliner’ provided on each top unit provides automatic alignment which saves time for the contractor.

When installing the polymer channel, take the height of the Alu Side-Line into account. The end-piece must be installed 3mm below the surface to ensure proper drainage.

Step 3:

Install a inspection cover where necessary. We recommend installing a inspection cover at each end as well as over every discharge outlet to simplify cleaning at a later time.

Step 4:

Wall up the polymer channel sufficiently and finish the tiles against the top unit.

 

After installation, the Side-line or Side-drain is practically invisible, with no loss of functionality.
