Aco Threshold Channel Drain Corner Unit CorTen 19013
ACO has launched an additional Threshold Drain Corner Unit in a new CorTen terracotta-like finish. All of the current Threshold Drain accessories are compatible.
ACO Threshold Corner unit with aluminium cover, for use with ACO Threshold drain channels.
There are some specifics to consider when using this finish on a product. CorTen develops its characteristic rusty appearance after it has been exposed to rainwater, therefore new stocks may look black when first delivered. This surface, the so-called patina, is an oxidation layer that protects the metal from further corrosion.
During the formation of the patina, the rainwater may also get a rusty brown colour and therefore can leave stains when it comes into contact with other (porous) surfaces.
It is of great importance to install the channel 3-5mm below the adjacent paving level, such that during heavy rainfall, no water will flow back on the paving. When using very porous paving material and/or light coloured paving, it is recommended to allow the CorTen gratings to corrode in a safe location and only install them on the channels when the patina has fully developed.
ACO bears no responsibility for stains on paving when using CorTen gratings. In case of doubt, we recommend using our aluminium gratings with this channel.
