Brisbane’s Portside Wharf was opened on August 29, 2006, a world class passenger terminal, catering for ships of all types and sizes.

It has become the gateway to Brisbane and its beach resorts. The hinterland regions of the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast are also a short drive away.

The expansive riverfront location is the beginning of Brisbane’s huge urban renewal project.

Hamilton Northshore comprises restaurants, fresh produce markets, cinemas and a premium function centre all set along a public plaza and vibrant wharf.

Portside Wharf, on the Waterfront at Hamilton contains Brisbane's exclusive riverfront residences with over 150 apartments overlooking the Brisbane River.

During storms, to keep the numerous flat walkways and access paths free from hazardous surface water build up, designers have decided on hundreds of metres of trench drainage.

In highly (foot) trafficked areas at close proximity to the waterfront, Grade 316 stainless steel Heelguard Anti slip grates were selected to ensure safety of passage for the thousands of people that visit each week.

Manufactured by ACO Polycrete , Grade 316 stainless steel Heelguard Anti slip grates are locked into ACO Drain modular precast channels made from durable polymer concrete with integrally cast stainless steel edge rails. This gives the trench drain a highly polished aesthetic appearance as well as good corrosion resistance.

Grade 316 stainless steel Heelguard Anti slip grates are available from ACO Polycrete and are rated to R10 – AS/NZS 4586:2004 Slip resistance classification.

The grates are available in 3 standard widths up to 300mm and are locked into the ACO Drain KlassikDrain system, ACO’s general purpose modular trench drain range. Channels in the KlassikDrain range can be assembled to produce sloped runs for efficient drainage suitable for flat pavements.
