Designing Commercial Spaces
A commercial space evokes an image of business, activity, large open expanse and free movement. To be successful, a commercial space supports human activity without hindrance. A well designed commercial space is one where users hardly notice the little details that make that space efficient and functional.
Drainage Solution – A Crucial Detail
A crucial detail in commercial spaces is the drainage solution. When we are dealing with large open spaces, we are dealing with the prospect of a large water catchment, dirt, mud and detritus being moved around by hundreds of fast moving feet. In such scenarios, drainage solutions play a vital role in keeping the space clean, dry and accident free.
Nodes and Networks
Commercial drainage solutions include a large range of products that fit into each other to effectively drain the space. It is like a set of nodes all networked into each other. There is a collection point or trench, covered with a grate or floor cap which makes up the node. These water collection units are attached to outlet pipes at set intervals. The outlet pipes connect to a reticulation system made of pipes which finally connects to the municipal storm water network.
Apart from the collection unit, users hardly observe the drainage system since it runs underground. Collection units need to be attractive or discreet and hardly noticeable, yet effective at removing surface water and dirt. Drainage nodes and networks play a vital role in making your commercial space durable and safe for public
When it comes to collection units, grates, trenches, floor caps and pipes, material choice is an important consideration. Materials have to be such that they comply with Australian standards around health safety, slips and falls and so on. One product which meets all the safety requirements is stainless steel.
