Threshold drainage systems for Balconies in Multi-Residential Design

Threshold drainage is an ideal solution for protection against water from the outside while still providing a continuous accessible path between the inside and outside.

A threshold drain consists of an external linear grate which sits externally beside the door track. An integrated, concealed, sub-sill collects water and condensation around the doorway and conveys it to the external drainage system. As the door systems drain the water to the outside of the building at the sill, the linear drain can be positioned on the outside of the door to capture that water while not impacting the designed water performance of the door system.

Keeping water out of a building is a requirement of the NCC and drainage must meet Australia Standards for waterproofing AS-4654 Waterproofing membranes for external above-ground use, as well as the requirements of AS1428.1-2009 Design for access and mobility for allowing a continuous path of travel from indoors to outdoors.
