Balcony Outlets Specifications
Caroflow Balcony Outlets are designed to allow the unit to be installed against a wall/upstand and the grating, which can be cut on site or prior to delivery, will allow various sizes of pipework to drain into the outlet from upper levels to provide a continuous drainage line from top to bottom storey.
Available in either LM6 Aluminium Silicon casting alloy to BS EN 1706:2010 for most roof finishes or in leaded gunmetal to BS EN 1982:2008 for use with lead or copper-clad roofs or for connection to copper pipework.

75mm Balcony Outlet
A = 230, B = 190, C = 50, D = 265, E = 206, F = 85, G = 130, H = 83, J = 142
100mm Balcony Outlet

Drainage Areas & Flow Rates for Balcony Outlets
BS EN 12056-3:2000 (Gravity drainage systems inside buildings – Part 3: Roof drainage, layout and calculation) now specifically limits the drainage capacity that can be used to calculate areas to be drained, so as to prevent siphonic action that may damage internal pipework.
Previous physical testing of all our outlets has shown that the rates and areas (see adjacent table) are lower than results that have been seen from this actual testing.
All rates are assuming that the outlet grate is free and clear of any debris/blockages
Results are based on a rainfall intensity of 75mm per hour and a 35mm head of water adjacent to the outlet (45mm head for 160mm outlets as per EN 1253-2:2015).
The flow rates shown should be used as a guide only. Each drainage area will have individual features that may influence overall flow characteristics.
