Applications – Public Works
Public buildings and services have a wide variety of requirements for drainage. Trench drains can be found in locations with heavy vehicles – such as fire stations, to applications with light pedestrian traffic and ADA grate requirements like in a school entrance.
Fire Departments require heavy duty drainage solutions to meet the demands of heavy vehicles – such as water trucks – and to provide a safe, slip-free environment. Trench drains provide an even floor with minimal slope that is safer for firefighters inside and outside of fire stations.
Trench drains in hospitals and other healthcare facilities are an important part of the overall public and property safety and special considerations, such as pedestrian and wheelchairs as well as heavier vehicle traffic should be accounted for.
School and University drainage is often found in large areas across buildings, sidewalks, sport facilities and parking areas. Most of these areas are used by students and staff on a regular basis and require the use of ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) grates.
