Wedgewire Commercial Public TransitToday, trench drains are very popular and used in designs such as:

  • Parking areas
  • Highways
  • Athletic fields
  • Airports
  • Rail stations
  • And much, much more
Designers consider function, aesthetics, and price when contemplating different drainage systems for their projects. Fortunately, the cost of trench drains is usually less than that of traditional point drain outlets, and the function and aesthetic of trench drains are hard to beat. What are trench drains designed to do? All areas need to remove some sort of water from the surface, whether it be rainwater in the street or a water spill in the kitchen of your favorite restaurant. Today’s trench drains are engineered to do the following:
  • Collect storm water
  • Eliminate standing water
  • Catch rainwater in landscape/hardscape areas
  • Protect buildings and other properties from flood damage
  • Provide a safe surface devoid of unsightly depressions

They are very affordable and actually make tiling and installation a breeze – much easier than completing the same project with a traditional point drain.
