Slot drains are a great solution for many kinds of drainage system needs. You can use them for walkways, around pool surrounds, at the edges of garden beds and in manufacturing settings. Picking the right size drain can make all the difference to your drainage system performance and slot drains are a great way to remove liquid wastes without pulling debris and other items into the water at the same time. These drains will keep a large amount of the debris that clogs drains from being introduced into your drainage system.
In manufacturing settings, these drains are perfect for walkways and areas that need to be kept free of water but might also cause issues with debris getting into the drains and clogging them. You can sweep across the top of these kinds of drains, or mop over them and there will be few issues with debris or junk getting into the drainage system to become an issue in another location. Even floor cleaning units will be able to pass over these drains with ease and will not have trouble cleaning the flooring space around the drain slot.
These drains are also very effective along paths and walkways, where slotted drains might cause tripping hazards for people. If you have an area that needs access to a high level of drainage that can withstand a lot of weight passing over it, these are often the right kinds of drains for this need as well.
