Founders Lane, Braddon, ACT

Founders Lane is a medium rise residential development in the Canberra suburb of Braddon. Constructed over a series of stages, the development includes a number of residential buildings that link through a series of courtyards, with pedestrian and cycle friendly green spaces to connect the community.

Project Design Brief

With a variety of finished floor levels throughout the site, different types of drainage was required to efficiently remove surface water from its pavements. A combination of trench drains and floor wastes were needed to be installed with pedestrian safe grates.

ACO's Solution

  • ACO Wexel® push-fit stainless steel floor drain


  • The narrow 6mm slot opening in the grates resists heel penetration and are bicycle, wheelchair and walking cane compliant to AS 3996 and AS 1428
  • Push-fit floor drains come complete with o-ring seals to provide a quick and watertight connection to both PVC and HDPE pipe
  • Hinged stainless steel grates ensure no grates could be misplaced during maintenance
