THE FUTURE OF FLOOR DRAINAGE
For years floor drain systems have featured a grated design. Whether you were on a sidewalk; in a factory; or at the amusement park, all you saw were grated drains set in the concrete. These grates sat over top of the drain opening serving the purpose of preventing large debris from entering the drain and providing stability to walk or drive over the drain safely. This design has worked well and has been the accepted practice for many decades; but, as with all industry, a better way can be found.
U-drain is a pre-engineered floor drainage system that features a single slot opening as an intake. This slot is narrow enough (1/2″ for residential models, 1″ for commercial models) that it requires no grates while maintaining the desired drainage capacity. This slotted design is changing the landscape of the floor drain market and its doing so by providing benefits simply not available through traditional grated systems.
