Drainage Channel HYDROblock®
made of cast iron for heavy duty
|Nominal width (mm)
|100 | 150 | 200 | 300
The main causes for damage on a drainage channel are – especially in the heavy duty field, horizontal and thrust forces, that depending on the load can cause material fatigue of the channel body, the edge rail an the grates. The drainage channel HYDROblock is made from rugged, ductile cast iron and can be used up to load class F900. The monolithic design with integrated socket seal reduces noise emissions and simplifies a liquid-tight installation.
Perfect for crosswise traffic
The channel withstands the highest loads (class F 900) and is ideally suited for longitudinal and crosswise traffic.
The channel is rattle-free in operation due to its monolithic design.
Smart seal system
HYDROblock® drainage channels are connected by an integrated seal which enables an immediate watertight connection without additional sealing.
HYDROblock® is also available with a slot width of 12 mm - standard slot width 22 mm.
Compared to TYPE M channels, the HYDROblock® does not require a concrete encasement. This can save 55% of the installation costs. The channel can be asphalted or paved directly.
Installation support / anchoring
The HYDROblock® feet can be used as an additional anchor point to the concrete foundation. Furthermore it facilitates the use of additional shims or clamps to level the HYDROblock® to a specific height.
The spigot end allows connection of commercially available plastic pipes.
The marking of the flow direction guarantees easier laying of the channel elements.
Extremely strong, especially in the heavy-duty range
Liebherr-Hydraulikbagger GmbH has expanded its production area at its founding site in Kirchdorf an der Iller (Baden-Württemberg) to more than 23,000 square metres.
Step by Step Installation Instruction
What has to be considered for the optimal installation of the HYDROblock? The installation manuals in the asphalt and paving sector in accordance with EN 1433 provide an answer to this question.
