Polycast Trench Drain Systems
The Polycast trench drain line has been at the forefront of leading drainage manufacturers for quite some time. Based in Lenoir City, TN, Polycast was formed in 1981 and specializes in polymer concrete and fiberglass drainage systems for a variety of both indoor and outdoor applications. Polycast installations include professional sports stadiums, airports and numerous industrial facilities around the United States. Offering a wide range of lines suitable for most residential and commercial applications. Polycast makes it easy to choose the right drainage system for any job. Each line is highly customizable with the ability to optimize the drain to fit most site and user requirements. The polycast line consists of the 400, 500, 600, 800 trench drain models.
Made of a high strength, chemical resistant, composite material, Polycast drains offer a high degree of chemical resistance and have a water absorption value of less than one percent (ASTM C140). Polycast Polymer Concrete is more than four times stronger than ordinary Portland Cement Concrete, simplifies installation and lowers overall costs.
• Ideal for indoor and outdoor applications
• Rapid drainage and durability
• Resistant to freeze/thaw cycles (ASTM C666)
• Offers superior versatility with 24” and 48" components
• End Outlet, Bottom Outlet and Catch Basin configurations
The type of outlet for a drain will greatly affect the drain’s performance. Whether using a pipe outlet or a catch basin, the outlet should be sized to handle greater or equal flow capacity of the trench drain. This will ensure that flooding does not occur.
For highly corrosive drainage situations, POLYCAST® manufactures drainage components with DERAKANE 470 Vinyl Ester resin. Trench drains may also be ordered with Vinyl Ester fiberglass grating and corrosion resistant locking devices. Vinyl Ester drain systems are ideally suited for handling most highly corrosive fluids. These are ideal for use in areas where EPA pollution control requirements dictate that manufacturers concentrate and collect these corrosive materials.
Certain applications require a liquid at elevated temperatures be drained into containment areas. These applications may include industrial plants, breweries, and food processing facilities. All POLYCAST drain systems are rated for 120°F continuous service. When higher temperatures are required, vinyl ester channels may be substituted which are rated for 180°F continuous service.
