Slot drains are drains that are made to take care of standing water runoff in areas where you need to make sure that you do not have debris that is collecting in your drainage system. This can be items like leaves and other plant materials, or it might be portions of the offal that are leftover after manufacturing processes are complete. You might need to prevent sludge from clogging your drainage system in a factory or you might need to keep yard debris from impeding the drains around your pool or fountain.
Slot drains are a very convenient solution for these needs as they are discrete and can be placed nearly anywhere. You can select from custom sizes of slot drain or you might want to pick from prefabricated sizes.
All of these drains will connect readily with the rest of your drainage system and can be counted upon to handle large volumes of water without leading to a tripping or slipping hazard. This is one of the biggest benefits of these drains as they are barely visible and will not catch shoes or cause issues with machinery passing over them.
Slot drains are used frequently in manufacturing and industrial settings because they are so small that they will not impede the passage of machinery over them and they will not catch the toes of shoes or cause issues for rolling carts and other machines over them.
These drains can also make it much easier to sweep or clean a workspace without fear of contaminants and refuse to get into the rest of the drain system. In breweries and other manufacturing locations that have a large amount of solid waste mixed with liquid waste to handle each day, this kind of drain can save a lot of time during the cleanup process.
You may not even realize that you have been walking over slot drains at the airport, at the seaport, or in public places and at public pools. These drains are far less visible than the traditional grated drain and they will not catch at your feet or cause issues when bags and other items need to be rolled over them. These drains can also be reinforced to handle the weight of vehicles and forklifts with ease. This is much harder to guarantee when you are driving across a drain with a grate.
Slot drains are also easy to clean and you can simply sweep them clean with a specified tool before moving on with your day. Whether you are caring for your yard or garden fountain or are working in a manufacturing location and need an improved drainage solution, slot drains can be the perfect fit for your needs.
Slot drains are easy to customize and they can come in many widths and sizes for any task that is required of them. Choosing from reinforced materials, steel, or stainless steel is largely a question of the kind of runoff that your drains need to handle on a daily basis.
