Drainage is essential for various architectural features, such as balconies. That’s because large, flat areas create runoff during rainstorms.
Previously, deep channel drainage was a popular option. Balconies and other spaces guided excess water to a metal grate covering a channel approximately 10 to 15 cm deep. However, modern low-profile drains as little as 3 to 5 cm deep can achieve similar flow rates when installed correctly.
Aquabocci is a leading brand of low-profile drains for balconies and other applications. Its products are sleek and “flush” to the ground, perfect for indoor-outdoor spaces.
Its low-profile drainage products have a slim channel that collects water from the surface. Runoff flows into a pipe in the primary drainage system, away from the building.
But why are these drains the best option for your next balcony project? Here, we explain.
Aquabocci launches 2 new low profile drains for the Australian market.
Both products are available in 4 colours, and our standard lengths and corner pcs.
The all new A25 Ultra low profile drain is just 25mm deep allowing it to be installed in almost any location. The product is so shallow it can be installed within the tile bed on top of a concrete slab or any area with a shallow build up.
The all new R-47 Low threshold drain only 88mm deep including the side entry and membrane sheet. The product connects directly to the sliding or bi-fold door and collects the water from the door track to allow for a flush finish to your balcony.
Multiple Installation Options
The main reason for choosing Aquabocci low profile drains is the sheer number of installation options they give you. You can draw up plans to install them in several locations, including the front side of the terrace walls, the centre of the floor along the middle of a V-shaped slope, or attached to the door threshold. According to the brand, any combination of drainage solutions is possible to enable more versatile designs.
Easy To Install
Aquabocci’s low-profile drainage also has elegant and modern designs. As evidence of this, the brand recently won a Red Dot Design Award for one of its threshold EPDM and marine aluminium threshold drainage systems.
Delving into specific products, the slimline S66 Low Profile drain is an excellent example of the company’s design philosophy in practice. The gulley features a simple grille-like drain entrance with a shallow, hidden channel just inches below the ground. The ultra-thin format evokes a sense of modernism and elegance, making it suitable for high-spec properties, including luxury homes. Contractors can assemble the system into various shapes and attach spigots to any position to connect to 2- and 4-inch pipes.
Finally, Aquabocci’s low Profile Drainage comes in four colour options across all models. These include GT Silver, matte Black, light gold Champagne, and Titanium anthracite.
