Runways and aprons can be contaminated with standing water, snow, ice or slush, which can be very dangerous for an aircraft’s approach, landing or takeoff.

The presence on the runway of fluid or solid contaminants can reduce the friction force between the planes’ tyres and the runway surface, which can negatively affect braking performance, skew landing distances, reduce directional control, impact stopping forces and create dangerous hydroplaning.

Eccles’ intelligent access and drainage solutions safely remove surface water from runways and carriageways across the globe.

We have a large range of high quality ductile iron access covers, gully gratings, composite access covers and bridge deck drainage systems – in stock and ready to go.

For bespoke projects we can also design and manufacture unique solutions just for you.
