Short Street Plaza only 3 minutes walk from the beautiful Manly beach a suburb of Northern Sydney, enjoys a friendly relaxed vibe.
The Northern beaches Manly Council upgraded Raglan Street from Belgrave Street (Pittwater Road) to North Steyne to create a modern spacious, pedestrian and bike friendly boulevard. Since then, the newly renovated plaza has become alive to community events such as the weekly Manly Fresh Produce Markets, and loads of fun kids’ school holidays activities.
The revitalisation of Short Street included new seating, paving, lighting, signs and bike racks. A large lawn provides a place for families to relax and enjoy the entertainment that now takes place in the Plaza. Sabdrain’s addition of the 601 Gal Steel Grated Channel system into the paved boulevard has seamlessly fitted into this new scene.
The specifications of the SAB600 for this project was ideal as its Galvanised steel heel guard type grate with the polypropylene plastic drainage channel unit offered flexibility and durability. The job requirements of being a class B load rated for pedestrians and light commercial vehicles was easily attained to by using our 601 series channels.
Sudden torrential downpours causing surface flooding and overflowing drains is something Sydney is now calling the norm. This was the perfect drainage solution for surface water due to its ability to drain road and stormwater quickly and effectively.
SABdrain grated Channel and Grate is designed to offer maximum versatility while delivering a lifetime of low maintenance. A 2-point security locking keeps it rattle free from vehicular movements and secures it from unauthorized access. The Heel Guard type grate was specifically designed to keep the public safe by providing a grate with holes less than 8mm ensuring no heels or the likes become a pedestrian hazard.
Providing Short street Manly with an effective drainage solution while ensuring the walkway for Manly is suited for the public to securely walk on was achieved nicely!
