  • Learning Objectives At the end of this program, participants will be able to: • Discuss the evolution of surface methods of drainage • Evaluate the functional features of u-shaped, single- slotted, non-grated trench drain systems and compare them to those of other trench drain systems • Identify trench drain system components • Describe design considerations and installation requirements©2010 Slide 3 of 30
  • Surface & Floor Methods of Drainage Brief History of DrainageAs construction materials evolved, simple ditches gave wayto cast-in-place, pre-cast concrete, corrugated slot drains, polymer concrete trenches, fiberglass trench drains, pre- engineered HDPE, and LLDPE grated slot drains©2010 Slide 4 of 30
  • Surface & Floor Methods of Drainage Traditional Trench Drains • Cast-in-place • Pre-cast concrete • Slotted • Pre-engineered©2010 Slide 5 of 30
  • Surface & Floor Methods of Drainage Non-Grated, U-Shaped, Single-Slotted Drains • Single slot-style mouth on top of a formed, u-shaped base • No grate required • Low maintenance • Sanitary • Cost effective©2010 Slide 6 of 30
  • Surface & Floor Methods of Drainage Drain Materials • Fiberglass • HDPE (high-density polyethylene) • Stainless steel and galvanized metal©2010 Slide 7 of 30
  • Surface & Floor Methods of Drainage Cost Comparison • Grated, u-shaped drains average $60-70 per lineal foot (include replacement grates at $15-20 per lineal foot) • Galvanized u-shaped, single-slotted, non-grated drains average $40 per lineal foot©2010 Slide 8 of 30
  • Functions & Features Aesthetics • One straight channel with a single slot profile blends neatly with surrounding surface materials • Clean, crisp lines make it suitable for a variety of applications©2010 Slide 9 of 30
  • Functions & Features Cleaning • Pre-engineered slope makes it a self-cleaning system • Can be cleaning manually using: – drain cleaning paddle – custom flush valve – pressure washer©2010 Slide 10 of 30
  • Functions & Features Flow Test results, as determined by the Faculty of Engineering (civil engineering department) at the University of Manitoba • The computed flow capacity of a 1” (commercial) slot opening was 0.040 ft/s or 18 gallons per minute (per foot of slot) • The computed flow capacity of a ½” (residential) slot opening was 0.026 ft/s or 11.4 gallons per minute (per foot of slot)©2010 Slide 11 of 30
  • Functions & Features Structural Capabilities • Structural capabilities are in direct relation to the strength of the surrounding concrete • Weight load is channeled through the u-shaped drain and into the concrete floor©2010 Slide 12 of 30
  • Functions & Features Durability • Used in facilities with stringent sanitary regulations (food and beverage industry) • Durable, easy to clean • No grates – no components that break • Machine placement is not limited by drain placement©2010 Slide 13 of 30
  • Applications Overview • Car washes, Car dealerships • Food processing plants • Farm shops • Parking lots • Airport tarmacs • Municipal buildings • Ambulance bays • Aircraft hangars • Gas stations • Fire halls • Any area requiring drainage©2010 Slide 14 of 30
  • Applications Commercial Applications A commercial grade system may be available as 16-gauge, hot dipped galvanized or stainless steel, in three meter (3m = 9’ 10”) sections that are pre-sloped .05% (½”)©2010 Slide 15 of 30
  • Applications Example: Commercial Application©2010 Slide 16 of 30
  • Applications Commercial System Features • Rebar tie-ins • Leveling brackets • Flush valves©2010 Slide 17 of 30
  • Applications Commercial System Features • Sump pit alternatives • Sump pits©2010 Slide 18 of 30
  • Applications Commercial System Features • Sump pits Lids – single inlets – silt baskets – lids Silt basket Silt basket Single inlet©2010 Slide 19 of 30
  • Applications Commercial System Features • Sump pits – "L" flange – duel inlet • Oil separator pits©2010 Slide 20 of 30
  • Applications Residential Applications • ADA compliant • ½" opening • Two slopes • Sump pits©2010 Slide 21 of 30
  • Installation Factory-Ready • Components of drain system arrive at the site in sections, factory-ready, for bolting together©2010 Slide 22 of 30
  • Installation Installation: New Construction • Step 1 • Step 2 Excavate a trench Pre-pour concrete pad©2010 Slide 23 of 30
  • Installation Installation: New Construction • Step 3 • Step 5 Install sump pits Bolt sections together • Step 4 Secure deepest section©2010 Slide 24 of 30
  • Installation Installation: New Construction • Step 6 • Step 7 Fasten mounting Tie the rebar brackets©2010 Slide 25 of 30
  • Installation Installation: New Construction • Step 8 • Step 9 Two concrete pours Clean the drain system©2010 Slide 26 of 30
  • Installation Retrofitting New Drain, Existing Floors • Mark out desired location of new drain and remove existing drain • Follow steps for a new installation – dowel into either side of exposed slab Replace Existing Drain System • Remove grates and walls of existing trench drain, and follow steps for a new installation • If existing drain walls cannot be removed, and the existing trench is deep enough, place new drain inside the trench, secure to desired level, and pour into place©2010 Slide 27 of 30
  • Conclusion Conclusion • Single channel provides efficient drainage • Aesthetically pleasing • Sanitary and durable • Easy to install and maintain • Meets structural load-bearing requirements for even heavy traffic applications©2010 Slide 28 of 30
