New 300mm Clear Opening Commercial Channel Made in NZ from 100% Recycled Plastic

The addition of the NZ-made 300mm clear opening commercial channel channel expands the versatility of Allproof's product offering by increasing the capacity and catchment area of surface water. The new 300mm addition will complement the 200mm clear opening which has proven to be highly popular since it was introduced in 2021.

Commercial Channel is manufactured from 100% recycled polypropylene with a focus on sustainable manufacturing. Using recycled material in long service life products considerably enhances the lifecycle of plastic and reduces landfill waste. This enables projects to benefit from the physical properties of recycled polypropylene while reducing the generation of excess carbon. Allproof operate with a zero-waste ethos with further onsite recycling processes at its production facility in Auckland so that all scrap material is reused.

Additionally, Allproof utilise clean energy generated on site through 449 solar panels installed on their main production facility. The solar panel installation saves a further 50 tonnes of CO2 from entering the atmosphere every year further reducing the carbon footprint of Allproof’s recycled Commercial Channel drainage range.

Selecting locally made products also reduces the embedded carbon footprint through logistics. The Commercial Channel drain range is manufactured on the North Shore of Auckland reducing supply chain distances and therefore embodied carbon through transport.

The 300mm wide opening of the channel provides excellent catchment of surface water with increased capacity, allowing the system to service large open areas with impervious finishes. The channel comes in a 150mm depth for optimal performance while minimising the labour component of excavation needed for deeper systems.

Using recycled polypropylene enables Allproof to manufacture a lightweight channel drain that improves the installation experience, reduces install time, breakages, costs and embodied carbon through logistics, all without compromising on strength. The Commercial Channel has been designed to utilise the strength of the surrounding concrete to create a strong durable solution for commercial drainage applications.

The grates offer a range of features that enhance the performance of the system. All grate options are designed to be heelproof for pedestrian safety and to be mobility and bicycle tyre friendly with consideration to direction of travel. Grates are secured with fixings to prevent damage through vehicular movement and unauthorised access.

The Wedge Wire (WW) grate is fabricated form 316 grade stainless steel enhancing its resistance to corrosion in marine environments. Additionally, it is load class B rated (when tested in accordance with AS3996) for light vehicles and has been independently tested for slip resistance (AS4586) achieving an R11 classification.

The Heelproof Cast Iron (HCI) grate is rated load class D catering to commercial vehicle traffic and has a slip resistance certification of P5

The Galvanised Steel (GAL) provides an economical option, is load class rated B with a large open area adding to its excellent hydraulic performance.

Allproof provides nationwide support through a team of technical sales representatives who can assist in product selection and advise on installation details and training.

Allproof are confident that the new 300mm clear opening Commercial Channel provides a premium NZ made solution for high-capacity surface water drainage. The Commercial Channel considers sustainability and environmental factors as well as install process and economic aspects providing an all-round exceptional product.
