As more Australians prioritise outdoor spaces in new home designs, it has become essential for architects, designers and specifiers to consider outdoor drainage systems early in the new build process. The consequences of poor drainage around decks, balconies and pool enclosures can be disastrous, leading to property damage and degradation of the surrounding landscape. Choosing the right solution will provide long-term cost and time-saving benefits, and ensure the proper functioning of the built area for the enjoyment of its users.
The Grate Outdoors: An Architect’s Guide to Outdoor Drainage Design and Specification aims to provide architects, designers and specifiers with an easy-to-follow guide to selecting outdoor drainage solutions with a focus on balconies, decks and pool enclosures. First, we consider the use of linear threshold drains for outdoor applications and the relevant building codes, regulations and standards that apply to outdoor drainage. We then consider some of the initial considerations when selecting an outdoor drainage system and how different grate materials perform in external conditions. We conclude by summarising the relevant factors to account for when choosing a drainage product.
