Pre-Sloped Trench Drain Systems

The Standard for Pre-Engineered Trench Drains

PolyDrain® is a drainage channel made in modular, pre-sloped sections from polymer concrete. Combine the interlocking sections to create runs of almost any configuration and length. In addition to its versatility, with precision pre-casting, you get a high-quality product that requires less onsite labor.

Replace site-built drainage products with factory-built performance, consistency, and reliability.

PolyLock Inserts

Vibration dampening inserts help keep grates secure under load conditions.  PolyDrain channels feature RedDot polyethylene or GreenDot polypropylene inserts.

Longitudinal Anchor Joint

The full-length keyway joint mechanically anchors the channel to the surrounding concrete encasement.

PolyLock Retention

Locking devices are recommended for all applications with loading requirements greater than residential and pedestrian traffic or where vandalism may be an issue.

Grate and Cover Choice

We offer a wide selection of grate options to meet any of your design aesthetic and structural load requirements.

Numeric Labeling

PolyDrain channels feature cast numeric labels to make installation easy and simple.

Directional Arrow

PolyDrain channels feature cast directional arrows to indicate the direction of water flow and ensure proper layout and installation.

Interlocking Joints

Interlocking tongue and groove joints aid positive alignment and provide a tighter joint.

Polymer Concrete

All PolyDrain channels are available in two polymer concrete formulations. Both offer superior strength and durability over alternative materials. All PolyDrain Polyester channels are UL classified.

Sloping Radius Bottom

PolyDrain channels have a built-in 0.6% slope and smooth radius bottom.

Important Issues

NFPA requires nonflammable trench drains

Life Saftey Choice

Selecting a fire-resistant non-sloped or pre-sloped 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 empty trenches can act as a pathway for flame spread.  For more info, see our Flame and Smoke page.


PolyDrain Trench Drain System

The PolyDrain polymer concrete trench drain system is well suited to a wide variety of surface drainage applications. The ABT PolyDrain precast trench drain system provides modular design flexibility, facilitates construction accuracy, requires less installation labor and skill, and has lower installed cost when compared to conventional hand-formed cast-in-place methods of creating trench drains.

PolyDrain polymer concrete non-sloped or pre-sloped trench drain system components have superior chemical resistance, greater strength, lower water absorption, and better freeze/thaw resistance than does Portland cement concrete. Polymer concrete is not degraded by salt, oil, most acids and alkalis, and offers UV resistance. These polymer concrete properties make ABT PolyDrain trench drains excellent for capturing, containing, and transporting surface runoff in any drainage application.

The standard 4 Inch (100mm) PolyDrain trench drain system contains both pre-sloped and non-sloped drain channels, grates, frames, catch basins, channel end plates, installation aids, and all other trench drain components to provide a complete precast channel drain solution.

By virtue of a smooth interior finish, radius bottom, and built-in 0.6% slope, flow velocities of 1 meter/second (3.5 feet/second) are attained inside ABT PolyDrain trench drain channels even in flat grade conditions. The higher hydraulic flow velocity and smooth surface reduces debris build-up in the precast polymer concrete drain channels in comparison to cast-in-place trench drain construction.

Also included in the PolyDrain precast trench drain system are Special Products for liquid containment applications, utility trenches, and limited-space installations. The PolyDrain system provides an optimized solution for any application.

The PolyDrain precast trench drain system is manufactured by ABT Inc., the industry leader in modular drainage systems for commercial and industrial use.
