At ACO, we offer a wide variety of digital solutions to assist you with your building drainage and surface water management challenges.
Please use the links below to access the area of your interest.

Trench Hydraulics

ACO can provide accurate channel recommendations with its proprietary software. ‘Hydro’ is a purpose written, hydraulic design program modeled on differential calculus for non-uniform flow in open channels. The program was further refined with empirical data, following a series of experiments modelling lateral intake into trenches.

HYDROlite

HYDROlite program which provides accurate channel recommendations with ACO’s proprietary software. HYDRO is a hydraulic design program modeled on differential calculus for non-uniform flow in open channels. The program was further refined with empirical data, following a series of experiments modeling lateral intake into trenches.

Subsurface Detention/Infiltration

ACO can configure a geocellular stormwater tank to facilitate stormwater retention, detention or infiltration based on the hydraulic, structural and maintenance requirements of the project.

Grate Hydraulics

ACO can provide accurate grate intake performance recommendations with its proprietary software. The hydraulic intake capacities of ACO’s grates have been independently measured by experimentation at a leading international university under varying flow rates and catchment approach slopes.

Run Layout Design

To make specification, ordering and site work easy, ACO can tailor a layout using CAD and other bespoke programs to illustrate (in plan and elevation) required positions and layouts of trench runs. A bill of materials is also produced.

Custom Trench Drainage

When standard products are not appropriate, a number of features can be customized to ensure the unit meets required performance criteria, site or customer requirements.

Aesthetics of Pavement & Grate

To help guide you through the range of grate designs the ACO Grate Visualizer tool marries together pavement surfaces and grate designs. Select the pavement which reflects your project and the software will guide you through the recommended grate styles and designs and material options for your application.

Building Drainage Resources

Trench Hydraulics

ACO can provide accurate channel recommendations with its proprietary software ‘Hydro’. ACO can also provide a channel capacity and drowned orifice calculation to help determine the maximum discharge through the outlet pipe.

Custom Hygienic Floor Trough

When standard channels and grates are not appropriate, a number of features can be customized to ensure the unit meets required performance criteria, site or customer requirements. Lengths above 10’ will join together utilizing bolting flanges and gaskets*. (*All modular sections include all necessary hardware and accessories.)

Custom Slot Drain

When standard 0.8” Slot20 channels and outlet boxes are not appropriate, a number of features can be customized to ensure the unit meets required performance criteria, site or customer requirements. Lengths above 10’ will join together utilizing bolting flanges and gaskets*. (*All modular sections include all necessary hardware and accessories.)

Utility Enclosures

ACCTRIX® Multipart configurator

For ease of specification and pricing, the ACCTRIX® program will enable you to design your own multipart or trench run system. You will be given a choice of 5 systems based on your enclosure’s size and load class requirements. These may vary in configuration and individual cover lifting weights, criteria possibly driven by your OH&S considerations.

Finally, once your preference is made, a drawing is generated for specification purposes and for submission to ACO for quotation.
