Wharves & Docks

port of brisbaneCommercial Wharves & Docks provide the most punishing environments for drainage systems, cable pits and manhole covers. Busy maritime operations involve the movement of very heavy vehicles as they load and unload containers. The repetitive nature of heavy wheel loads imposes severe stress on apron areas, whilst the corrosive nature of the marine air environment requires only proven, reliable, quality products to be used.

ACO trench drainage systems are available in sloped runs to allow for the efficient removal of surface liquids from level slabs. ACO’s grated trench systems are either monolithic in construction for optimum security or are available with removable grates that are locked with boltless mechanisms into integrally cast ductile iron edge rails with anti-shunt mechanisms.

ACO has supplied a variety of products including electrical pits and access covers to container and passenger wharves and docks worldwide for over 40 years. ACO also manufactures hygienic stainless steel drainage channels, floor wastes, grease traps and modular pipe systems ideal for use in food and wash down areas of terminals and other quayside buildings.
