AQUADECK is fully compliant to the Harmonised European Standard BSEN1433.
AQUADECK is CE marked but also carries the new UKCA mark (required from January 2023), which following the UK’s departure from the EU will replace the CE mark for all UK projects.
For additional quality and assurance AQUADECK has also been certified and awarded the prestigious BSI Kitemark, meaning the product has been checked against all aspects of the standard, not just the minimum requirements for CE/UKCA certification and is subject to ongoing surveillance and checks (Product Certification) – equivalent to AoC (Attestation of Conformity) system 1 throughout manufacture and supply.

(Group 4) BSEN1433.
Testing free standing as a Type I unit.
(BSEN1433 Clause 6.1.1)
AQUADECK requires no additional on-site support to withstand compressive loads.
In-house CAD design/computer modelling and load simulation abilities.
Aquadeck installation is simple and the units are fast to install, the whole process can be carried out by experienced kerb layers. The system is laid on AQUADECK Bedding Compound and adjusted to line and level.
AQUADECK sealant is gun applied to the ends of the unit to form a watertight seal.
PLEASE REFER TO OUR AQUADECK INSTALLATION GUIDE FOR MORE INFORMATION.*
* Plus 10% follows Kitemark protocol for Manhole Cover testing to BSEN124 for Kitemark accreditation.
Clients are welcome to visit our purpose built test facility at Walsall where they can witness load testing of AQUADECK units from our stock products or their own site specific production runs.
Eccles UK are pleased and excited to announce the introduction of AQUADECK, a high strength combined kerb drainage system for use on bridges and/or any elevated roadway.
Our Eccles team have many years experience in the design, manufacture and supply of Bridge Drainage Systems in a variety of materials.
Our history in this sector spans over 3 decades, indeed our castings can be found still in service on projects such as the Birmingham Toll Road, A13 Canning Town, Avonmouth Bridge, and on the M6 at Bromford where over many schemes we have supplied over 30,000 units making the Bromford Viaduct home to some of the longest runs of Bridge drainage units anywhere in the world.
AQUADECK Flush fitting drainage channels and AQUADECK Sub Drain complete the AQUADECK Bridge Drainage system.

AQUADECK SELECTED TO DRAIN THE STRUCTURES ON THE M56 6-8 SMART MOTORWAY PROJECT
June 2021 saw the first installation of our AQUADECK system on the M56 Junction 6-8 Smart Motorway in the North West.
This is the first of 9 bridge locations where our AQUADECK system will be installed.
The M56 between these junctions carries in excess of 100,000 vehicles per day and is part of Highways England’s programme to add capacity to the existing road network in order to support economic growth and maintain mobility.
AQUADECK carries the BSI Kitemark and the new UKCA mark – well in advance of the January 2023 deadline when UKCA certification will replace CE on UK projects
Lee Fazal, site manager of PP O’Connor Ltd, the drainage contractor working on the project, said:
“We chose AQUADECK for our M56 SM project as they prepared and submitted a cost effective and full detailed design package for us, as well as advice and guidance on product selection based on site construction depths, hydraulic data and current certification requirements”

STAFFORDSHIRE WESTERN ACCESS ROAD IMPROVEMENT SCHEME
In the spring of 2021 we were approached by Amey, working alongside Staffordshire County Council, to take a look at the drainage requirements on a 130m stretch of viaduct, which forms part of the Staffordshire Western Access Road improvement scheme.
Our customers and partners often turn to us for expert consultation and advice, and so the team went down to the site to carry out a full hydraulic design based on DMRB guidelines.
Eccles AQUADECK Division carried out a full hydraulic design based on DMRB guidelines enabling us to propose our AQUADECK 450mm wide system as the most cost-effective solution for the project.
In addition, we designed and manufactured a unique expansion joint assembly to transfer the surface water run-off through the expansion joint at the low end of the deck where the flows would be at their highest.
Our new expansion joint ensured maximum drainage capacity through the joint with minimal restriction of flow, an issue which is often faced with these types of installations.
AQUADECK Project Director, Chris Rothery said:
‘The design flows on this structure were quite high so we needed to move away from our traditional flexible pipe design expansion joint to maximize drainage flows across the bridge joint.
‘Our new expansion joint design ensured maximum drainage capacity through the joint with minimal restriction of flow, an issue often faced with these types of installations.’
Drone footage has been captured of the site throughout the construction period. This gives a fantastic view of the structure, and also you can see the new line of AQUADECK units in situ all across the kerbline on the deck.

AQUADECK is fully compliant to BSEN1433 carries CE marking as well as full product certification by way of the BSI Kitemark and was one of the first products of its kind to carry the new UKCA mark.
Our technical design team welcome enquires from bridge engineers and contractors for bridge projects from early design stage to contract award.
We can advise on rainfall levels across the UK following guidance from Highways England DMRB/MCHW depending on your project location.
Armed with this data we can advise the most cost effective solutions from our wide range of AQUADECK products for your particular structure.
