Channel Drains

PVC Cladding sells channel drainage systems, with either Plastic Grate (D700) or Galvanized Grate (D701). Each length interlocks with the next, eliminating the need for costly joiners. The system is fully compatible with PVC Cladding's underground drainage system.

Our Domestic Channel Drain can be applied around many domestic areas where surface water collects including patios and conservatories, swimming pools and sports areas, gardens and water features and retaining walls.

JOINTS AND CORNERS

Individual sections are designed to be slotted to the next length using the pre-formed interlocking groove. Corners are formed using the pre-formed corner sections D710 (PVC Grate) and D720 (Galvanised Grate). Any other angles such as 45° around bays and conservatories are formed by mitering two sections and sealing the joint with silicon sealant.

LOADING

Our channel drainage has a loading capacity of 5 tonne overall with a 1.5 tonne single point load, making it suitable for use in domestic driveways. Channel Drains should always be backfilled with concrete to ensure the structure and loading capacity is maintained.

CONNECTING TO DRAINAGE

There are two options available for connecting the channel drain to the drainage system. Each length of channel drain incorporates a pre-formed bottom outlet that connects to 110mm PVC Drainage. Alternatively you can use the D712 end outlet, which also connects to standard 110mm drainage.

GARAGE PACKS

Our useful Garage Packs contain all that you need to install a run of channel drain in front of a standard single garage. The pack consists of 3 interlocking lengths, one end cap and one end outlet which connects to standard 110mm PVC underground drainage. If your garage is wider than 3m all you need to do is add the requisite amount of additional lengths to make up the correct width.
