Channel drains are sometimes known as linear or Aco drains -- and the odds are, you've probably walked or driven one at the last 24 hours. Channel drain systems are totally unobtrusive, tidy and neat drain solution that is used anywhere from the tiniest internal domestic configurations up to large scale industrial systems. A wide range of linear channel drain systems are available to suit loading classifications according to BS-EN 1433 -- (drainage channels for vehicular and pedestrian areas). We built to suit all circumstances and can supply level depth.

Channel drains are a construction system used around the world for a variety of purposes. You could also hear them being called linear or trench drain or drain channels. But how do drainage channels work? The explanation as to how they work is that it's based on gravity. Accordingly, channel drains should always be positioned at a point where surface water is likely to roll towards - under no circumstances should the liquid be expected to climb uphill! The system is made up of grating over the top with the channel usually being made from plastic, concrete or a composite material. The aim of drain channel would be to remove surface h2o away from an area (such as a driveway or car park). This also helps to reduce flood and over spill of surface water. These drains are also utilised to control flow by reducing the pressure being put on the system in the area it's been installed.

There are systems with built-in falls, and ones that maintain a regular depth along their entire length. Those with drops tend to be employed to drain large, flat areas such as car parks. The 100mm deep plastic type is used for brief lengths of drain, and on regions with a small slope or fall. 

Additionally, there are a variety of accessories that will be required for specific projects. We supply a broad range including sump units, corner and accessibility units, end caps, and socket adaptors for channel drain. There are solutions to all needs here at EM.

At EasyMerchant, we've got a wide range of channel drainage product systems available. These include basic 1 metre long plastic units for use on private driveways, garage packs for the front of a garage, through to stainless steel components for commercial or industrial use such as airports or large car parks. They come with various top grates. For example the composite drain comes with a simple slot grate on top, the plastic domestic drain comes with a "heelguard" plastic grate, which is designed to stop high heels from falling through the slots. You'll find all different type of grate on the channels, so you'll need to chose between their aesthetic of their use when you buy.

Drain channels come in a variety of sizes, from units for roof drainage all the way up to 250mm for commercial motorway drain. They are designed using a lot of different of materials, including stainless steel, concrete that was wet-pressed, HDPE plastic and polymer concrete.
