PolyDrain Pre-sloped Trench Drain System


ABT, Inc., parent company of SportsEdge, manufactures PolyDrain® trench drains, the standard for pre-engineered trench drains. Over the years the PolyDrain name has become synonymous with trench drain design. Architects and engineers, recognizing the benefits of pre-engineered polymer concrete trench drains, specify PolyDrain for a wide variety of applications. Included among these applications are running tracks, tennis courts, bleacher areas and bordering sports fields. PolyDrain polymer concrete trench drain assures the specifier of the precision and accuracy of a pre-engineered system. PolyDrain offers design flexibility, as well as ease of installation.

In addition, expensive labor and material costs associated with hand-forming methods are eliminated. PolyDrain channels are a nominal meter (39.19 in., 3.27 ft.) long. Standard channels have a 0.6% built-in slope. The 30 standard channels are positioned sequentially in numerical order from 010 to 300, creating a continuously sloped channel run.

Pre-Sloped Radius Bottom Channels

Standard PolyDrain channels have a built-in 0.6% slope with a smooth radius bottom and a narrow cross section. These features provide excellent hydraulic efficiency. Without any site slope, 3.5 feet per second velocity is obtained when the channels are flowing full.

PolyLock™ Inserts

PolyDrain channels feature RedDot® polyethylene inserts. These, together with the grate locking devices comprise the PolyLock grate lock-down system. RedDot inserts also provide vibration dampening that helps keep grates secure under traffic conditions.

Catch basins, horizontal outlet plates, closed end plates and vertical outlet plate adapters can be installed at designated locations. Closed end plates terminate channel runs.

900 Series Small Catch Basins

PolyDrain 900 Series Catch basins have the same outside dimensions as standard PolyDrain channels. Designed to be positioned any place in a channel run. The 900 Series catch basins are available with easy to remove galvanized steel trash buckets and can accept the full range of lockable inlay grate systems.
