ULMA’s drainage system has been installed in the renovated area of Largo Do Intendente in Lisbon, Portugal
This area of Lisbon has recently been renovated to draw more attention to it and make it a livelier place. As part of the renovation, the city council has moved a beautiful garden in wrought iron by famous plastic artist, Joana Vasconcelos to the area, which invites passers-by to sit and admire the buildings with tiled facades that are so emblematic of the city.
For the renovation works ULMA provided the U100 channel with a continuous slope and slotted gratings on the sides, exclusively designed in stainless steel for this project. This class of grate in an inverted “L” shape is an ideal solution for cobblestoned areas in pedestrian areas or plazas.
The system perfectly integrates with the pavement so that is indistinguishable from its surroundings without compromising its hydraulic capacity.
It can be used for up to D-400 load class as per Standard EN-1433. As it consists of a lateral slotted grate, it is the optimal option for installation in areas near walls.
The U system channels are the best option for the purposes of incorporating slopes in areas with light traffic, such as pedestrian zones.
In total, approximately 160 lineal metres of ULMA’s drainage solution was installed in the streets of this central neighbourhood of Lisbon.
