Installation guidelines


BG-OMEGA installation guidelines

1) The BG installation and maintenance guidelines and installation examples below are intended for standard applications. The load class and installation location in accordance with EN1433 should be adapted during planning to suit the local conditions. The technical policies and guidelines generally recognized among experts should be taken into consideration. In special cases, please contact BG Application Engineering.

2.1) A recess in accordance with the installation examples must be provided in order to be able to create epoxy resin grouting, or the channel will be concreted with the floor panel.

2.2) The channel elements should be laid according to the laying plan/installation instructions in the designated location and rotated correctly to be able to establish a sealed flange connection – attention should be paid to the equal size/height of the flange.

2.3) First, the pipe nozzles/outlet piece has to be connected to the sewer and levelled in height with the lower nut of the supports (do not tighten the second nut yet) – channel edge approx. 1 – 1.5 mm below the level of the finished floor.

2.4) Clean the flanges of the channel elements thoroughly (dirt must be removed) and bolt together including seal – the bolting material is included in the scope of delivery as standard.

2.5) When bolting the flanges, take care to ensure the exact orientation of the channel run (plumb line, scale beam).

2.6) Once the entire run is aligned and leveled, it must be secured against slipping by concreting or grouting – to this end, tighten the second nut on the racks from above and dowel them or set them in concrete locally.

2.7) Cover parkline channel with pour protection to avoid concrete spills on the channel surface.

2.8) During concreting or grouting, a spacer which later creates the groove for a high elasticity joint between the channel wall and the floor must be inserted.

2.9) When applying the grout, care must be taken to ensure that it fully encloses the external contour of the channel, without forming bubbles. The channel must be fully supported. Otherwise the channel body may deform under loading at a later point.

2.10) When pouring and vibrating the concrete, take care that the position and shape of the channel body does not change.

3) We recommend creating a maintenance joint between the BG-OMEGA channel and the road connector. The maintenance joint should be installed using a high elasticity sealant. Apply coating in accordance with the coating manufacturer’s specifications.

4) All adjoining floor covering surfaces should be permanently approx. 1-1.5 mm higher than the surface of the channel in order to ensure proper water drainage.

5) Cleaning and maintenance work: in areas in which higher exposure to chemical substances (e.g. de-icing chemicals, acids, bases, etc.) is to be expected, we recommend cleaning the channel regularly in order to prevent deposits.
