ACO BalconyDrain from ACO Polycrete was installed on the large balconies of Kingston Park Apartments in Melbourne to manage surface water during bad weather.

Located in the suburb of Highett, Melbourne, the Kingston Park Apartments spread across three apartment towers are designed with a classic facade and state-of-the-art materials.

The large balconies overlooking Sir William Fry Reserve were designed for residents to enjoy an inspiring outdoor experience. This meant that surface water along the building line had to be managed carefully without inconveniencing residents during inclement weather. 

Hallmarc Limited specified ACO’s BalconyDrain, a stainless steel channel and grate system designed for shallow balcony screeds. For this project, the system was connected to the building’s various concealed and exposed downpipes.

Along with BalconyDrain - BD01, the designers also specified stainless Wedgewire Heelsafe Anti-Slip grates.
