Trench drains Applications

Are you looking to realize a commercial, residential, or infrastructure trench drain project?

There exist lots of trench drain variants for a diverse pool of applications and it can often become confusing to find the correct drainage system to collect rainwater for a project. Be it for parking, airports, ports, houses, breweries, stadiums, or fire stations, this application page will help you find the best trench drain to avoid flooding. As we specialize in designing and manufacturing trench drains and slot drains for all sorts of applications and load classes, feel free to reach out to our technical department to get adequate quality support.

PARKING

The primary purpose of a drainage system in a parking lot is to remove water from the surface quickly and efficiently. There are several factors to consider when designing such a system, including the slope of the lot, the type of surface material, the amount of rainfall anticipated, and the location of any storm drains. If the drainage system is not designed properly, it can lead to flooding and other problems.

Designed specifically for traditional or above parking structures such as elevated decks, BG-Graspointner offers prefabricated trench drains that will fit shallow concrete slabs and linear drainage solutions to cancel the noise when cars roll on trench drain grates.

Products recommended for parking trench drain applications:

  • BG-FILCOTEN mini shallow
  • BG-FILCOTEN pro G
  • BG-FILCOTEN parkline
  • BG-FLEX sigma tec

AIRPORT & PORTS

Airport and port trench drains are designed with large flow capacities to accommodate high volumes of water. Trench drain design is also important to ensure that the water can move quickly and efficiently to avoid any potential flooding or damage.

Airports are designed to handle different types of loads, depending on the purpose of the airport. For example, a small airport that is used for general aviation will have a different load class than a major international airport. The load classes are determined by the intensity of the rain, the weight of the aircraft, and the type of pavement.

Products recommended for the airport and ports applications:

  • BG-FILCOTEN pro G
  • BG-FILCOTEN one
  • BG-GATIC slotdrain

INDUSTRIAL/ COMMERCIAL

Industrial trench drains are often used in processing, manufacturing, and water treatment plants.

Commercial trench drains are often used in manufacturing factories, warehouses, semi-trailers, supermarkets, car parks, and many other construction sites. It is also used in many areas where high moisture levels are present such as in restaurants and seafood processing plants.

Trench drains in areas with industrial or commercial activities typically see standing water, highly corrosive agents, large amounts of debris, flammable materials, harmful chemicals, non-hazardous substances, and other damaging conditions. These kinds of conditions must be carefully considered to determine the best options for a trench drain application.

LANDSCAPING/ RESIDENTIAL

Residential trench drains are commonly used in areas where rainwater needs to be drained away from home. This can include areas in front of the garage, around the pool, or on the driveway and sidewalks. The trench drain system consists of a series of lined up prefabricated trench drains that mainly come with grates on top in most cases. This helps to quickly and efficiently move water away from home, helping to prevent flooding or other water damage.

Residential trench drains are available in various sizes and patterns to choose from. This allows for a complex and customized drainage system that can be tailored to the specific needs of each home. Trench drains are made from a variety of materials, including plastic, metal, and concrete, so they can be matched to the existing landscaping or home décor.
