Shallow Trench Drains

Shallow trench drains are a specialty for other trench drain manufacturers but for Dura Trench these are a standard item.  We manufacture all of our trench drain systems in a shallow configuration no matter the width.  Our shallow trench drain systems have starting depths of 2″ deep.  We can also manufacture our shallow trench drains with slope unlike other shallow trench drain systems on the market.  Slope on a shallow drain system is extremely beneficial.  When you have limited flow capacity due to the shallow depth you need all the help you can get to keep the water and debris moving.  We often create systems that slope from 2″ to 4″ when on elevated decks or above basements.
