Trench Drains Explained
Trench drains are surface drainage systems that collect water along their length in a linear channel. Often used in areas where water tends to pool, they prevent damage and erosion by redirecting water into a connected sewer or waterway. In outdoor, landscaped areas soggy turf and muddy ditches are not only unpleasant to look at, but can also pose numerous health risks, from bacteria to tripping hazards. Trench drains prevent that from happening, solving the problem before it even becomes one.
Where Are Trench Drains Used?
Trench drains are commonly used in outdoor settings such as driveways and backyards, where they can be installed along paved areas, such as walkways and swimming pools. They are ideal for landscaped areas, as they quickly remove water before it pools and ruins your backyard. They are also used in civil, commercial and industrial worksites, to safely and efficiently remove water and other liquid waste, as well as in public settings such as roads and parks.
Stainless Steel Trench Drains
While stainless steel has made a name for itself in bathroom settings, due to its sleek looks and easy to clean nature, it is less commonly associated with outdoor areas. Precast concrete is more commonly found in worksites and industrial areas, possibly because of its hardy looks and seemingly tough abilities. But good looks don’t have to come at the cost of quality, and stainless steel is quickly proving itself to be more than just a pretty face.
Stainless steel is durable, corrosion resistant, long lasting and easy to clean. It allows for simple drainage—unlike solid materials such as cement—and unlike cheaper imports, there are no hidden costs. Stainless steel channel grates are easy to install and require minimal maintenance, saving you time and money. As well as this, our Heelguard finish ensures smooth and easy pedestrian access, without risk of heels or other footwear becoming wedged, minimising painful and costly accidents.
