Quick-Trench Channels are 1 meter (39.4 in) polypropylene composite sections with uniform exterior and 0.5% sloped of neutral interior full radius bottom for eicient liquid drainage. Channels mate to adjacent sections via integral ears, clips, and 25 mm (1 in) overlapping tongue. Each channel contains 6 receptacles for fixation to rebar via wire or cable tie. Up to 12 meter (39.6 ) sloped drainage run is possible to a single end point. Up to 24 meter (79.2 ) slopped drainage run is possible to a center point collection point. Neutral channels are available to extend run lengths or where level trench drain is desired.
Channels have staggered semi-circular cutouts on each side at bottom to enable concrete flow under legs. Drainage options include bottom outlet, end outlet, basin outlet, or catch basin. Bottom and end outlet fittings in PVC are sized to accept 4 and 6 in pipe. Bottom and end outlets fittings are available in PP where chemical resistance is needed. End fittings are universal fit and field trimmed to appropriate height. Grating options include ductile iron standard and heavy duty rating, secured to frame assembled to channel. Grate load ratings are available in classes A-F. Refer to channel table for upstream (U) and downstream (D) depths from top of channel.

May be installed at any position on bottom of channel for bottom drain option. Accepts 4″ and 6″ PVC pipe. Field drill through channel bottom with hole saw if bottom outlet is used. Available in PP if chemical resistance is needed.
Top Finish Cap
Attaches to top of SEC or OEC to bring end fitting height up to grate level.
Used where deep collection point is desired at end of trench. Mates to any channel section, also accepts OEC or BPO fittings for drainage outlet options. Strainer basket available for debris collection. Length is 1/2 meter.
Used as a clip to join channel sections to other channel sections, channel sections to end fittings, and channel sections to catch basin. Also used as a spacer to maintain spread at top of channel during concrete pour
