CC300 Update

NEW 300mm Addition to Allproof Commercial Channel Range

Allproof is expanding the NZ made commercial channel drain range by adding a 300mm clear opening channel. This update increases the versatility of the product line by expanding the capacity and catchment area for surface water. The new 300mm channel will complement the popular 200mm clear opening, which has been well-received since its launch in 2021.

The Commercial Channel is made locally from 100% recycled polypropylene, with a focus on sustainable manufacturing. Using recycled materials in products with a long service life significantly extends the lifecycle of plastic and reduces landfill waste. This enables projects to benefit from the physical properties of recycled polypropylene while reducing the generation of excess carbon. Allproof operate with a zero-waste ethos with further onsite recycling processes at its production facility in Auckland so that all scrap material is reused.

Furthermore, Allproof harnesses clean energy generated onsite through 449 solar panels installed on their main production facility. This solar panel installation prevents a further 50 tonnes of CO2 from being released into the atmosphere annually, further reducing the carbon footprint of Allproof’s recycled Commercial Channel drainage range.

Selecting locally made products also reduces the embedded carbon footprint through logistics. The Commercial Channel drain range is manufactured on the North Shore of Auckland reducing supply chain distances and therefore embodied carbon through transport.

Key Features

    • Manufactured in New Zealand using 100% recycled polypropylene.
    • The 300mm wide opening enhances surface water catchment and capacity, enabling the system to service large open areas with impervious finishes.
    • The channel’s 150mm depth ensures optimal performance while minimising the labour required for excavation.

The use of recycled polypropylene allows Allproof to produce a lightweight channel drain that improves installation efficiency, and reduces installation time, breakages, costs, and embodied carbon through logistics, all without compromising on strength. The Commercial Channel has been designed to utilise the strength of the surrounding concrete to create a strong durable solution for commercial drainage applications.

The grates offer a range of features that enhance the performance of the system. All grate options are designed to be heelproof for pedestrian safety and mobility and bicycle tyre friendly with consideration to the direction of travel. Grates are secured with fixings to prevent damage through vehicular movement and unauthorised access.

Grate Options

Wedge Wire (WW) Grate: Made from 316-grade stainless steel, it offers enhanced corrosion resistance in marine environments. Rated load class B (when tested in accordance with AS3996) for light vehicles and independently tested for slip resistance (AS4586), achieving an R11 classification.

Heelproof Cast Iron (HCI) Grate: Rated load class D for commercial vehicle traffic with a slip resistance certification of P5.

Galvanised Steel (GAL) Grate: An economical option, rated load class B, with a large open area for excellent hydraulic performance.

Allproof provides nationwide support through a team of technical sales representatives who can assist in product selection and advise on installation details and training.

Allproof is confident that the new 300mm clear opening Commercial Channel offers a premium NZ made solution for high-capacity surface water drainage. The Commercial Channel considers sustainability and environmental factors as well as install process and economic aspects providing an all-round exceptional product.
