Quick-Trench channels are 1 meter (39.4 in) polypropylene composite sections with uniform exterior and 0.5% sloped or 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 4 receptacles for fixation to #3 rebar via wire or cable tie. Up to 30 meter (98.4 ) sloped drainage run is possible to a center 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, or catch basin.
Bottom and end outlet fittings in PVC are sized to accept 3 in or 4 in pipe. Bottom and end outlet 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, galvanized, stainless steel, and plastic with lock down feature to secure grate to channel. Grate load ratings are available to suit nearly any application and may be specified ADA compliant. Refer to Trench Channel Table for upstream (U) and downstream (D) depths from top of channel.
End Caps, Outlets and Accessories
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.
Locking Device Galvanized
Use pour boards to maintain grate width of the channel during concrete pour.
