What defines innovative technology?
Maximum performance and sustainability.
We work with the power of nature for its preservation.
For over 50 years we have relied on engineering made in Austria, to produce technologically advanced and eco-friendly products.
Impact strength and eco-friendliness are two key features which make FILCOTEN® your only choice.
The material combines the best features of concrete channels, using a patented fiber enriched formula instead of the environmentally harmful resins.
FILCOTEN® is unrivaled in the market place, and admired for sustainability and strength. FILCOTEN® complies with the EN 1433 standard and the ASTM A126.96.36.1991 floor and trench drain standard.
FILCOTEN® channels are made of cement-bonded fiber composites, which react to changes in temperature in the same way as the surrounding concrete bedding. It is also resistant to de-icing salts, and cold as low as -40° F.
The high impact resistance and stability of FILCOTEN® ensures easy, quicker installation, and greater safety when installing the channels.
Every ounce of a FILCOTEN® channel is completely recyclable. Filcoten has been tested by the soil and building materials testing facility in Linz, Austria.
Depending on the type of channel, FILCOTEN® channels are up to 70 % lighter than conventional concrete channels.
FILCOTEN® is committed to conserving resources and decreasing its CO2 emissions. The lower weight also facilitates easy installation on site.
The flat inner surface of FILCOTEN® channels are highly crafted making the surface extremely smooth in order to minimize friction. This attention to detail achieves the best possible flow characteristics and a superior self-cleaning action.
The textured outer surface ensures a perfect bond with the concrete bed.
A high quality cement infused with a high proportion of fibers enables thin-walled channel design while yielding a high compression strength. FILCOTEN® channels are therefore lighter, and easily out-perform most competitors.
While plastics are both flammable and often emit hazardous fumes when ignited, the complete absence of resins, catalyst and bonding agents make FILCOTEN® completely no flammable. FILCOTEN® has a Fire Rating of A1.
FILCOTEN® is free from artificial resins and solvents. This means it is harmless to the environment, employees, or the installation team. FILCOTEN® channel bodies have been bio-constructively tested and are recommended by the IBR (Institut fur Baubiologie Rosenheim GmbH).
