Roadways and airport runways are constantly taking punishment from vehicles and from exposure to the elements. Hydraway drainage systems protect the investment by reducing the risk of freezing water and subsurface erosion.
No drainage solution on the market today ships as well as a Hydraway system. Why is this especially important for roadways? It’s simple. A highway drainage replacement project can span miles and miles of roadway. Therefore, shipping is critical to saving on labor costs. When you can deliver long coils of Hydraway systems exactly where it is needed, workers will be more efficient at laying it down. Each Hydraway coil can include 2,250 feet of our flat drain system.
Conventional perforated drain pipe systems ship in coils that are significantly shorter than Hydraway. Essentially, our drainage systems can be laid out in single strips up to 2550 feet with zero memory from the coil. This speeds up construction on drainage projects along roadways and other long, flat infrastructure, like airport runways.
Even more so than roads and highways, airport runways have to be in top condition to ensure the safety of passengers and the aircraft themselves. Cracking, pothole formation, and surface instability are absolutely unacceptable on airport runways, which is why Hydraway, a technically superior runway and road drainage design, is the system of choice when constructing runways.
Road drainage structures that use traditional systems like perforated pipe are prone to clogging, which can eventually lead to water buildup, erosion, and freezing. Hydraway systems have a record of zero failures when properly installed. Zero is pretty hard to beat for infrastructure like runways.
Hydraway can be laid out in single strips up to 550 feet with zero memory from the coil.
Drainage System Design for Roads
Roadways have specific constraints that make them more complicated systems than structures such as parking lots. Because it is more difficult to shut down a major roadway than a parking lot, ease of installation becomes one of the critical defining features of the Hydraway drainage solution.
Hydraway is a type of drainage system for roads that is used as a part of road construction all over the United States and around the world. This is because it is easier to transport, easier to install, and resistant to failure. In fact, Hydraway has never once failed when properly installed. The resistance to clogging means that standing water can be avoided on and along roadways. Not only does this decrease the necessary maintenance on each roadway, but safety is increased as well.
Road surfaces are perhaps the single most important piece of civil infrastructure. Simply using storm drains and road surface drainage systems can’t accomplish everything that a superior subsurface system, like Hydraway supplies, could deliver. Why not reduce maintenance costs and improve safety? It’s possible with Hydraway.
