We simplify our driveway drains for residential home owners by making a simple kit. We offer three driveway drainage kits; 16′ wide kit, 24′ wide kit, and a 32′ wide kit. The driveway drain kit comes with everything you need for a heavy duty residential driveway drain. This is not a plastic trench drain like you find in the box stores or other online sites. You can buy our heavy duty, presloped channel drain right here online. We are so confident in our premium quality residential driveway drain that we offer a 10 year warranty against product failures. This driveway drain will last the life of your home!
The Dura Trench premium residential driveway drain kit comes with 8′ long sections of trench drain. The long sections make DIY driveway drainage easy for any skill level of installer. Our driveway drainage kit comes with detailed installation instructions explaining how to achieve a professional result while saving money doing it yourself. The channels come with built in metal installation clips that allow you to drive a 1/2″ diameter bar in the ground, adjust the channel drain to grade, then tighten the screw to securely hold the drain at the proper elevation. The top of the drain has plywood factory installed so that concrete does not get inside the drain during construction. The plywood can also be used to hang the trench from formwork or to brace the trench in perfect alignment. Our driveway drains have a heavy duty metal frame to ensure long life. This metal frame is one of the reasons we can offer the 10 year warranty on our driveway trench drain. The frame includes welded concrete anchors and a quality powder coated finish. The drain bodies can be cut to required length before installing the end plates and outlet plates.
Quality Driveway Drain Kit
The channel drain body is not plastic like almost every other residential driveway drain. Our driveway drain is made from GFRPC (Glass fiber reinforced polymer concrete). This is an advanced polymer that does not grow, shrink, or degrade with UV light like other plastic driveway drains. This is a premium driveway drain system in all respects. The channel drain has a built in slope meaning you will be able to flow more water and the drain will need less cleaning. Traditional residential channel drains do not have slope and this causes debris to settle in the bottom of the channel drain. Do you really want to spend your weekends cleaning a drain? By spending just a little more up front you can save yourself years of headaches.
We top our high quality channel drain with a commercial duty cast iron trench grate. These are the same metal trench grates that are used in highway projects. Our trench drain grates are tested and able to hold over 50,000 lbs without failure (most vehicles are 3,000 to 7,000 lbs spread on 4 wheels). These channel drain grates are designed to outlive your pavement.
The grates do not need to be in the channel drain during the concrete pour. Your kit will be shipped with plywood in the top of the trench. This will give the installer a place to brace the channel drain. It will also keep the concrete out of the driveway drain during the concrete placement. The channel drain grates will remain clean and presentable.
Let me ask you this…Would you drive across a plastic bridge? Of course not! So why would anyone buy a plastic trench drain and drive across it every day? It will not last and pretty soon you will have to replace it. This means more concrete cutting, jack hammering, buying another trench drain, pouring concrete, etc. Sure you can do it but wouldn’t you rather just do it right the first time?
