BSI Kitemark™ now carried on ACO monocast highway drains
All ACO Technologies’ monocast highway drainage systems now carry the BSI Kitemark™. The move by the drainage and water management specialist, clarifies the manufacturing and performance standards met by the products – which includes the award winning ACO KerbDrain range - and provides engineers and contractors with absolute assurance that each complies fully with all the requirements of the Highways Agency.
“ACO pioneered the development of one-piece highway drainage systems. From the outset, we have always ensured that these products satisfy the most rigorous manufacturing and performance standards,” says Peter Ridgway, Market Development Director at ACO Technologies. “ACO KerbDrain and ACO RoadDrain are designed to specific applications and must be manufactured to a consistent high quality to provide the customer with the assurance that risk is minimised. The Kitemark® is an independently certified test that encompasses every aspect of a product’s design and manufacture. It is the only mark that gives independent approval to a product meeting the required standard. We are delighted to be the first manufacturer with it.”
ACO’s monocast products are part of a comprehensive range of highway systems that cover every drainage application from Load Class A to F. Every product is certified for its Load Class environment, is CE marked and complies fully with ISO 9001:2000.
For ACO Technologies’ drainage channels designed for use in vehicular and pedestrian areas, all products meet the requirements for BS EN 1433:2002 Annex D.
