BG-Graspointner is a family owned company with a global presence in over 31 countries, and more than 14 subsidiaries world-wide. We began in 1963 by producing concrete components that were sold locally, and we still have our head office in the beautiful area of Mondsee, in the Austrian Alps. Since then we've become a leader in the field of Trench drains continuing to expand our global footprint and our reach to the North American market.
The FILCOTEN® tec trench drain system has all the advantages of FILCOTEN® but with added safety features. Anchoring ribs ensure a secure bonding with the surrounding concrete bed. The trench drain system is resilient up to class E600 (in accordance to DIN 19580).
Because FILCOTEN® pro V can handle a high load capacity, it is especially suitable for installation in industrial areas such as factories, warehouses and garages. With its' sleek good looks it can easily be used in public places such as railway stations, and pedestrian or residential areas.
Because FILCOTEN® pro E can handle a high load capacity, it is suitable for installation in industrial areas where corrosion resistance is required, such as factories and warehouses. With it's sleek good looks, however, it can easily be used in public places of architectural interest.
Because FILCOTEN® pro G can handle a high load capacity, it is especially suitable for installation in industrial areas such as distribution centers, factories and warehouses. With its sleek good looks it can easily be used in public places such as railway stations, and pedestrian or residential areas.
The new, revolutionary FILCOTEN® one is a good example of Channel and grating cast in one piece - for the first time made from the most innovative material on the market: FILCOTEN® HPC (High Performance Concrete).
- Monolithic structure, no movable parts in the standard channel body
- Available in nominal widths of 6" (150mm) & 8" (200mm)
- For dynamic exposure in road traffic, extremely robust and safe
- Load classes D 400 - F900 according to EN 1433
- Fire protection class A1 - non combustible
- Optimal linear expansion coefficient for the mineral surrounding (concrete)
- 100% recyclable
- Resistant to rapid freezing & thawing according to ASTM C666, and to chloride ion penetration according to ASTM C1202
Ideal for threshold applications, the FILCOTEN® pro mini range is the most complete range of its class. We carry two different heights for each 4", 6“, 8" and 12" trench drain, with a starting at a height of 2.36". All of our trench drains have integral rails and are available with a heavy duty galvanized and stainless steel rails up to class E600 kN.
Shallow trench drains reduce the need for thicker concrete slabs; lowering costs and allowing for design flexibility.
Drainage systems in car parks are a necessity and present various challenges. The classical box channel systems aren‘t always suitable. In contrast to the usual fare we offer FILCOTEN parkline: a modern, quality design manufactured with quality material using highly developed construction. It offers the perfect solution for every challenge.
Often used in:
- House entrances
- Pedestrian areas
- Sports facilities
Channel geometry / surfacing
The flat inner surface of FILCOTEN® channels are highly crafted making each channel smooth, in order to minimize surface friction. This achieves the best possible flow and a superior self-cleaning effect.
CastSlot is first choice where constant, slow turning traffic is a major consideration. Originally designed for supermarket car parks, delivery and distribution areas, CastSlot has become a trusted staple in surface water drainage specifications for projects where load ratings can reach F900.
The subtle profile of CastSlot sits neatly within concrete, asphalt, and block surface finishes. CastSlot features an electro painted ductile iron throat section, which is securely fixed to the galvanised steel channel body to provide an exceptionally robust yet discreet drainage system.
UltraSlot is an ideal choice for external pavement areas that are subject to constant traffic, such as airports, ports and areas with heavy-duty vehicles. The depth of concrete cover over the main body of the channel system is designed to ensure it can withstand ultra heavy-duty loads.
The channel top edge has an outward fold to prevent damage. Innovative channel features such as concrete anchors, stabilising bars, channel feet and others, ensure the channel has a physical connection to steel reinforcement and is properly tied into the concrete encasement/surround to create a strong, solid and durable structure.
PaveSlot is used to drain external hard surface areas, where a neat, unobtrusive and aesthetic appearance is required. The system is suitable for all paved areas, in public and commercial projects, which may be subject to occasional traffic by delivery and service vehicles.
It is typically used with paving units laid against the top edge of the channel. Throat spacer perforations allow any subsurface water that may have settled under paving units beside the channel to percolate and move into the channel body.
This discreet surface drainage channel can be installed directly against a building, wall or other external landscape feature to provide effective drainage of surface liquids from vertical surfaces, door thresholds and the adjacent pavement area. The channels can be made to follow the building perimeter whether straight or curved.
When positioned over a simple rainwater inlet box, the system can accommodate rainwater downpipes which can eliminate the need for a separate drainage network for the roof area, achieving a more efficient drainage design.
Gatic Access Covers are machined horizontal and vertical seating faces of the cover and frame components, which, when assembled into a complete unit, provide a cover and frame that is sealed against dirt and water, and remains completely stable without rocking under traffic loads.
The perfect drainage for industrial flooring - a place where hygiene related issues are of the utmost importance. Thanks to its distinct shape, the slot channel is the most efficient system for this type of application.
This high-quality and individual drainage system can be adapted to suit your needs. Practically any height, width and load capacity are possible. Stainless steel gratings up to class C 250 are available as covers.
