Fire Departments

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.

Main Fire Department drainage features:

  • Heavy duty application
  • Safe grates for employees
  • Minimal floor slope
  • Dynamic loading
  • Indoor and outdoor drainage options

There are three main areas to consider within Fire Departments:

Heavy Traffic

When planning heavy-duty areas, the extraordinary loads on the surfaces must be given special consideration. Strong dynamic and lateral forces and hundreds of maneuvers every day require high quality and durable products. Monolithic channel bodies without adhesive joints are particularly suitable for heavy-duty surfaces.
