The Context

Gatic UltraSlot channels: an innovative solution

In the summer of 2018, Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport undertakes the reconstruction and expansion of Apron II, a parking area for aircraft. Satisfied with Gatic products for the drainage of its de-icing area, the Ottawa airport opts again for the Gatic UltraSlot brand of steel slot channels for the linear collection of stormwater for its new tarmac.

The Solution

The consulting engineer selectedto perform this project, Ian Rowbotham P. Eng., senior project manager at Avia NG Airport Consultants, specified the use of Gatic UltraSlot channels for the development of the linear collection system. The contractor, Tomlinson Group, therefore installed more than 300 linear meters of Gatic UltraSlot channels, 225 mm (8.85 in) to 500 mm (19.7 in) in width, in the poured-in-place concrete. The system was completed with the installation of 8 access wells and 8 exit wells.
