Gatwick Monorail

Interior Building Drainage


Available 24 hours a day for all users of Gatwick Airport, the inter-terminal monorail service provides easy, regular and free transport between Gatwick Airport’s North and South terminal buildings. Component Developments worked alongside Resin Flooring HQ Ltd to design, manufacture and supply the drainage systems for Gatwick Monorail Servicing Shed.

The proposed drainage channel was Component Developments’ 3010RS profile which has permanent brace bars and reinforced shoulders to help the systems distribute the loadings of slow moving vehicles. The drainage channels were topped with a heavy duty anti-slip grating complete with a 23 x 10mm open mesh and 30 x 3mm load bars. This grating has a small mesh which helps take heavier loadings but also is a small enough that trolley wheels cannot get caught.

The final solution designed and manufactured was two 57metre long drainage channels both complete with 5 branches. Each of the branches had a built in fall to 75mm diameter outlet spigot for connection up to stainless steel pipework.

“Resin Flooring HQ are professional resin flooring contractors, so when our client requests stainless steel drainage systems, we trust in Component Developments to deliver the best product quality. We decided on their bespoke drainage systems, which were tailored to suit our own professional requirements and like us, they recognise how to provide a solution within industrial sectors where hygiene is paramount.  Additionally, they commit to a site visit which ensures easy installation and their professionals examine any measurements to determine accuracy, which is compulsory for our company. From beginning to end dealing with their friendly team on and off site has made the process a professional but simple installation.”
