When performance matters on your project, our PolyDrain® Shallow drainage channels offer a practical and economical drainage solution. The initial cost of plastic and fiberglass trench drain may look attractive; however, the different thermal expansion coefficients between dissimilar materials and surrounding concrete repeatedly introduce extreme thermal stresses. These stresses can lead to fracture or deformation of the drainage channels. Most fiberglass and plastic materials are also extremely susceptible to UV degradation.
Under serviceable design loads and proper installation, polymer concrete can often outlast the life of the concrete slab. This superior quality makes our shallow depth drainage channels top of the line.
Interlocking tongue and groove joints aid positive alignment and provide a tighter joint.
Vibration dampening inserts help keep grates secure under load conditions. PolyDrain channels feature RedDot polyethylene or GreenDot polypropylene inserts.
We offer a wide selection of grate options to meet any of your design aesthetic and structural load requirements.
Low Profile Channels
When depth restrictions require a shallow channel PolyShallow offers a practical and economical drainage solution. Available in 3.1" and 3.9" depths.
Adjustable support legs attach to channel sides and speed installation.
Longitudinal Anchor Joint
The full-length keyway joint mechanically anchors the channel to the surrounding concrete encasement.
FORMERLY KNOWN AS PICCOLO CHANNELS
PolyDrain Shallow Channels offer a practical and economical drainage solution where slab depth restrictions dictate the necessity of a shallow drainage channel. PolyDrain® Shallow features our exclusive “Red Dot” locking blocks and can accept any standard PolyDrain grate. Special support legs attach to channel sides, expediting installation. Numerous outfall options are available, including solid end plates and vertical outlet connectors.
NFPA REQUIRES NONFLAMMABLE TRENCH DRAINS
Selecting a fire-resistant trench drain system should be common practice for any interior application. Trench Drains are often the collection points for flammable fluids and heavier-than-air vapors. As a result, even when empty, trenches can act as a pathway for flame spread. For more info, see our Flame and Smoke page.
