Channel Drains

Dura Trench prefabricated channel drains are our most popular product line.  The pre-sloped channel drains are offered in many widths starting at 2" wide through 48" wide.  The channel drains come standard with 0.5% slope built in but can be manufactured with any slope specified.  The minimum depths can be as little as 2".  There are no maximum depth restrictions on this product other than construct-ability.  Dura trench channel drains offer a stable thermal set polymer body that is not temperature sensitive like most plastic channel drains.  The polymer body is also UV stable.  This makes Dura Trench channel drains suitable for some of the most harsh environments.  The long channel drain sections and light weight channel drain body make installation easy.  Plywood in the top of the channel drain is standard to keep the channel drain clean during concrete placement.  Built in metal installation aides are rigid and don't break off.  The product can be outfitted with a large number of frame options including painted steel, galvanized steel, iron, stainless steel, aluminum, plastic, fiberglass, brass, and bronze.  Choose a premium channel drain system that can meet your project requirements.
