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.

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.

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.

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.
