Advantages of TrenchDrain®
Capturing surface water is often critical to keep a basement or other area dry. There’s no better drainage system for this task than the TrenchDrain® grated drain from Basement Systems. TrenchDrain is typically installed at the bottom of a basement stairway, or across a doorway into a walkout basement. It can also be used to prevent surface water from entering a garage. TrenchDrain is easily integrated with the WaterGuard® drainage system lines and other basement waterproofing solutions from Basement Systems.
The TrenchDrain System consists of a drainage channel with a removable, flush-fitting grated cover. Because both parts are made from heavy-duty reinforced plastic, you’ll never need to worry about breakage, corrosion, moisture damage or maintenance.
In a basement where a radon mitigation system has been installed to lower radon exposure levels, we recommend combining our TrenchLock® air lock drains with TrenchDrain. Made from high-strength plastic, TrenchLock™ inserts are designed to fit in TrenchDrain channel, directly below the removable grate. Cup-shaped recesses are located every 6 inches along TrenchLock™ insert strips, and each recess holds a plastic ball that covers a hole. In “dry” mode, the ball sits in the recess, blocking air movement that can adversely affect the performance of a radon mitigation system. But when water enters the drain, the balls float, allowing water to drain through the holes and into the drainage channel.
TrenchDrain™ is only available from a certified installer in your area. Contact us to request a basement repair consultation and get a free cost estimate at no obligation.
