This 5' wide x 12' long x 5 deep stainless steel catch basin had flanges for accepting 18" wide trench drains and a 15" stainless steel outlet pipe. This catch basin was for a munitions facility and had to meet strict NASA welding standards. The stainless catch basin and the 18" wide stainless steel trench drains had all interior welds tested to be flawless. Our stainless welding team can meet your needs.
Stainless trench drain systems for food and beverage must meet strict FDA requirements for sanitation. This requires the drains to not have standing water and they must remain clean. The surfaces should be smooth and sterile to not promote bacteria growth.
Stainless trench drain systems have factory seal welded end plates and outlets. The pipe outlets can be any size as long as it can be effectively welded to the stainless trench drain.
This spice blending facility used 4" wide heavy duty stainless steel trench drains to drain the production floor. The floor was sloped to the drains in order to ensure the floor was dry without a squeegee. The stainless trench drains will have constant forklift traffic so the grates are heavy duty to take this constant abuse.
The Dura Trench stainless steel trench drain system is often manufactured in long sections to speed on site installation and welding. These stainless trench drains can be manufactured in lengths up to 50 feet long.
This bottling facility utilized stainless steel trench drains to maintain the sanitary condition of their drains. This is a 4" wide stainless steel trench drain with heavy duty forklift rated slotted stainless steel grates.
This bakery is utilizing our heavy duty stainless steel floor drains with built in strainer baskets. This of course shows the initial installation before the floor topping and epoxy floor system.
This food processing plant used a 4" stainless steel trench drain to keep the process area free of water. The floor was sloped at 1/4" per foot to the continuous stainless steel trench drains. The trench drains carried the water to a sump where the effluent was pumped to a water treatment area.
Dura Trench stainless steel trench drains come with factory installed installation aides and boards in the top so that concrete stays out of the trench. This saves countless hours of installation time and clean up. The stainless steel trench drain systems can be manufactured with any layout or turns for the most complicated process areas.
The temperatures and sanitary needs of a brewery often demand stainless steel trench drains to provide a long life. Dura Trench can manufacture any width, slope or layout of stainless trench drain required to fit a brewery application.
This bio-diesel plant needed a chemical resistant durable trench drain. Dura Trench custom fabricated an 18" wide stainless steel trench drain system to the required layout. The stainless trench drain ranged in depth from 5" to 30" deep and had 6 shop fabricated turns to precisely fit into the existing plant.
Dura Trench is dedicated to be a leader in the stainless steel trench drain and stainless steel slot drain market. We have invested heavily in the technology to manufacture precision pre-sloped stainless steel trench drain systems and stainless steel slot drain systems. We have reviewed how a traditional stainless steel trench drain was being built and looked for ways to make it better.
We offer our stainless steel channel drains in any thickness you desire. Commonly our stainless steel trench drain and slot drain bodies are made from 14 gauge stainless but we have worked a lot with thin gauges like 18 gauge, 16 gauge, 12 gauge, 10 gauge, 7 gauge, and even 1/4" thick stainless bodies. We also fabricate stainless steel trench drains from T304 or T316 stainless. We finish the stainless steel channel drains with a class 2b or sandblast finish.
One of the difficulties with stainless steel trench drains is making long runs where all the joints line up properly. Over the years, Dura Trench has heavily invested in high precision CNC and robotic equipment for its stainless steel trench drains. This allows the stainless channel drain bodies to line up precisely for easier fit up and welding. We offer the joints as a butt weld or a flange connection on our stainless steel slot drains and trench drains. To reduce installation time in the field we can make stainless steel trench drains in lengths as long as we can ship. This is typically about 48 to 50 foot.
The depth of a stainless steel trench drain or stainless slot drain is an issue for many fabricators.

We believe the installer is important and his time is valuable, so we always put some focus on how our stainless steel slot drains and stainless steel trench drains will install. We attach our proven rigid metal installation devices on the sides of our stainless channel drains to help the installer hold the stainless slot drain or trench drain on grade. This device will also resist the flotation that happens when the concrete is poured. Dura Trench stainless steel trench drains are also shipped with plywood in the top of the drain. This keeps concrete out of the stainless steel channel drain during the placement. The installer can also use this wood to attach bracing to keep the drain straight.
Grating construction is another area where Dura Trench is changing the way stainless steel trench drains are viewed. There should be options! We have a larger selection of stainless steel trench drain grates than anyone else. We ensure they are industrial strength, not those week flimsy grates that many others produce. A stainless steel trench drain is purchased because the drain needs to last in a harsh environment? Why shouldn't the grating be built for the same environment. We have slotted, ADA compliant, serrated, solid covers, mesh grates, bar grates, and many others. While it is typical to install a stainless grate on a stainless steel trench drain, we do have other options like fiberglass, iron, plastic, brass, bronze, stone, etc. if needed.
Dura Trench stainless steel trench drains and stainless steel slot drains have been used in projects like poultry production, chicken hatcheries, slaughter houses for beef and pork, commercial kitchens, power plants, bakeries, beverage bottling facilities, breweries, wineries, distilleries, munitions facilities, chemical processing facilities, manufacturing plants, and many more.
