Advantages of the Swiftdrain 600

Ease of Installation


The fact that the 600 series is composed of light weight plastic components, makes installing them extremely easy. All the pieces are marked with numbers and arrows to make installation a smooth affair. The tongue and groove connections help the channels connect, even as the re-bar supports provided on the side impart stability.

The catch basin too is conveniently provided with the tongue and groove mechanism and also provides you with the option of using a trash bucket. All you need to use to have this system up and running is the screws to secure the grate and seal off the outlets not is use. That is way more convenient than installing a concrete trench drain system, both in terms of cost and speed of installation.


Multiple Grate Options


Swiftdrain 600 offers a number of grate options. These include ADA compliant options that are also heel proof. Grates come in galvanized steel, ductile iron, cast iron, stainless steel and polymer. The grates made out of plastic come in two patterns and black, white, brick red, gray, dark gray, green and sand colors. These are built to withstand pedestrian and light traffic use.

Their galvanized and stainless steel grates on the other hand are built to cope with pedestrian as well as heavy traffic. Besides, these are resist corrosion and can be easily sanitized. Such grates see use in industrial settings like those found in chemical plants and breweries. Apart from plastic and steel the 600 series also has grates made out of cast iron, ductile iron and decorative ductile iron. The cast and ductile grates in particular can be used with an optional ductile iron frame to obtain a Class D rating. These can support heavy traffic in the shape of forklifts making these just right for installation in factories, warehouses and the shipping industry.


Radius Couplings


Those who add radius couplings to their trench drain system to enable radius, perimeter and circular applications would be able to drain running tracks, and areas abutting pools and enclosures. These couplings can provide a 4 degree deflection between sections enabling you to come up with the radius that you need. As all components can be easily made to assemble, there is no need to use special tools for this.



Inline Catch Basin


Inline Catch Basins with sediment traps, strainers and debris baskets. Catch Basins are 6" wide and 28" deep. Catch Basins have 2 side outlets.


Smart Design
