KlassikDrain drain systems from ACO Polycrete were specified for the Boilerhouse Student Precinct at the University of Western Sydney, Parramatta.

The Boilerhouse Student Precinct has received a number of accolades for its architectural design and recognition for its historical significance. The sandstone brick building is a well-designed common area integrating all student-related activities. Since the plaza is constantly filled with people, the walking surface including the drainage grating was evaluated for safety.

ACO’s KlassikDrain was specified with Heelsafe antislip grates to prevent women’s heels from getting trapped by the metal surface. The slip-resistant grate also offers greater assurance on wet days.

ACO products specified by Hyder for the project included:

  • KlassikDrain K100 Stainless Wedgewire Heelsafe anti-slip grates
  • Numerous ACO drain systems including grated pits
  • ACO Cablemate cable pits
