Key Products

We have a large and varied product range designed to fulfil any project requirement.

Highways and Roads

In the UK we currently have over 250,000 miles of road network, including 2,300 miles of motorway.

With such a vast impermeable area, coupled with the UK’s famous wet weather, it’s easy to see how surface water could quickly build up to dangerous levels if not managed properly.

We provide effective drainage and water removal systems that take surface water away from the carriageway to prevent aquaplaning and skidding, and to help make our roads safer for all users.


Golden Valley Interchange

The Golden Valley Interchange is easily recognised thanks to its striking V-shaped steel box sections which support the impressive A40 bridge over the M5 motorway.

Eccles’ AquaDeck bridge drainage units were chosen for the recent refurbishment project here by Kier/MJ Church.

Special Products Division

When the product you need can’t be found on the shelf,  something a little more bespoke is required.

Our Special Products team will work with you to realise the specification of your project, designing and engineering a cost-effective solution that’s tailored just for you.
