Birco Lite

The function of the Birco linear drainage system is to intercept, store and transport surface water. For normal surface water drainage there are six different Birco systems.

Birco Lite comprises a range of channels, gratings and in-line outfalls. This system is ideally suited to drain supermarket or office car parks, or when located adjacent to a kerb line, service yards or lorry parks. Inbuilt fall and constant depth channels are available.
