Slot Drain is the most durable drainage system available. The only parts of the drain exposed are the surface angles, which are made of stainless steel (for stainless steel drain sections) and galvanized steel (for fibreglass drain sections). The rest of the drain is embedded into the concrete, so it can handle whatever weight you want to put on it. There is no grating, which deteriorates / breaks / bends and needs replacing. This makes it especially suited for heavy/high traffic areas, such as car washes, airports, parkades, warehouses, truck and rail loading docks.
Four-sloped floors, or contoured floors, are replaced with effective, low maintenance and low cost, two-sloped floors. Gone are the metal gratings and metal covers that are a nuisance to remove and clean. It?s available in both fibreglass and stainless steel, with T-Sections, 90? and 45? elbows to go around corners and other obstacles.
Slot Drain is applicable wherever floor or ground surfaces are subject to fluids, or have frequent cleaning requirements. Most Slot Drain applications are slab on grade, but it can also work in structural slabs and hollow core slabs. Overall, it replaces trench drainage, with a self-cleaning system, at a significantly reduced cost.
Self-Cleaning and Easy to Maintain
Due to Slot Drain?s precise slope, smooth interior and the addition of flush valves, it is pretty much self cleaning and maintenance free.
Flush valves can be added to the drain ends, with time control in order to automatically flush the system when needed. Most car washes opt for the flush valves, then hook them up a timer and a sump pump located in the pit. That way, Slot Drain continually cleans itself, reusing/recycling its own water.
If manual cleaning is ever required, cleaning paddles are also supplied. The paddles have the same profile as the Slot Drain section and are simply inserted through the slot, then twisted 90 degrees and moved along the drain.
Slot Drain is available in both stainless steel and fibreglass, depending on the application.
