Dura Trench products are designed for heavy duty channel drain applications.  We are the premier manufacturer of commercial trench drain systems.  Our heavy duty trench drains were engineered to outperform all other commercial trench drains.  To be a true commercial trench drain you must have a wide variety of heavy duty trench drain grates for the designers to choose from.  Your commercial trench drain system must have a full line of heavy duty trench drain frames for any application. Your commercial trench drains must have a wide variety of heavy duty channel drain bodies.  The channel drain bodies must be offered for both shallow trench drains and deep depth trench drains.  Finally, a true commercial trench drain system will have a wide selection of outlet pipe materials and sizing options to fit any need.  Eric'sons Dura Trench has manufactured a heavy duty, commercial trench drain line of products that fit this mold.

Our heavy duty trench drains come in a wide variety of widths:  2" commercial trench drains, 4" commercial trench drains, 6" commercial trench drains, 8" commercial trench drains, 10" commercial trench drains, 12" commercial trench drains, 18" commercial trench drains, 24" commercial trench drains, 36" commercial trench drains, and 48" commercial trench drains.  Our heavy duty channel drains also come in shallow trench depths.  We can manufacture shallow trench drains down to 2" depths.  Many other commercial trench drain systems only offer shallow trench drains with no slope and often only in a 4" wide commercial trench drain.  Dura Trench can manufacture any of our trench drain widths as a shallow trench drain system.  We can manufacture a rectangular bottom on any of our trench drains allowing all of our systems to be shallow trench drains.  We have manufactured shallow trench drains as wide as 48" wide at depths as little as 2 inches.  We can also provide slope on any of our shallow trench drains.  Dura Trench shallow trench drain systems can have any slope.  The Dura Trench drain system can work above a waterproofing membrane or can have a clamping collar to accept the waterproofing membrane.  For more on shallow trench drains and membrane trench drain systems click here.  The designer only needs to call out the depth at the deep end and shallow end of the trench drain system.  Conversely, we can also manufacture any of our heavy duty channel drains in very deep depths.  We have made heavy duty trench drain systems for airports and highways that have exceeded 8 feet in depth.

The Dura Trench line of commercial trench drains offers a wide variety of trench drain grating.  We have everything from pedestrian rated grating to heavy duty channel drain grating.  Pedestrian rated trench drains often have more decorative grating made of materials such as plastics, stainless steel, brass, bronze, stone, etc.  Heavy duty trench drains typically use ductile iron, cast iron, or galvanized steel grates.  Consideration must be given to grate loading when using shallow trench drains.  The heavier the load the thicker the grate will be.  Thick grates increase the minimum depth of a shallow trench drain.  No matter the material, Dura trench drain systems are offered in a wide variety of patterns to meet any commercial trench drain application.  If we don't have a pattern you want let us build it for you.

To have a truly heavy duty trench drain the system must transfer the load from the grate to the surrounding concrete.  A good commercial trench drain system for frequent and heavy duty traffic will have a load bearing frame.  It will not rely on the channel drain body to transfer that load.  The heavy duty channel drain frames that we offer are thick and rigid.  The thickness of the frame makes it rigid and durable.  All heavy duty trench drains must have frames that are also properly anchored in the surrounding concrete.  This is done using concrete anchors.  For heavy duty applications the diameter, length, and angle of these anchors matters.  A good frame should also have the proper end treatment or end frames to complete the system.  Dura Trench drain end frames are heavy gauge and welded to the frames to protect the edge of the drain from damage.  Many "commercial trench drains" are really designed to be economical to manufacture.  Little concern is really given to the heavy duty nature of the trench drain system.  We do not sacrifice the design of our heavy duty channel drain systems to get one more piece on a pallet and save on shipping costs.  We believe that true quality products have a better life time value.  Customers wanting a heavy duty channel drain system want something that will last.  We build our commercial trench drains for this type of application without compromise.

The Dura Trench line of commercial trench drains is easily sealed water tight.  We offer a variety of sealant applications for our trench drain systems no matter what your application.  Learn more about our commercial trench drain sealants by clicking here.

Finally, we are the only commercial trench drain manufacturer that will supply our products with any size or type of outlet pipe.  What good is a nice heavy duty trench drain if it can't carry the water?  Installing a 12" wide heavy duty channel drain with a 6" outlet pipe is a little pointless.  We can supply our commercial trench drains with outlet pipes of any size or type.  We have cast 1" through 24" pipe outlets into our channel bodies in materials including PVC, HDPE, cast iron, stainless steel, and CPVC.  On shallow trench drains we will cast small diameter pipes out the end or side.  In most cases it is best to cast bottom outlets on shallow trench drains so that cover over the pipe is not an issue.  On deeper commercial trench drains it is not as critical where the outlet pipe is located.  Just ensure there is proper cover over the pipe especially for heavy duty trench drain systems.

Dura Trench has spent years developing and perfecting our heavy duty channel drains.  In fact, we are not done perfecting our systems.  We believe that as the market, manufacturing technology, and demands change we must continue to innovate if we are to remain a leader in the commercial trench drain market.  Contact us and let us show you the differences in quality and speed of installation of our heavy duty trench drains!
