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.

Main Healthcare drainage locations:

  • Hospital entrances
  • Heliports
  • ER entrances
  • Loading docks
  • Parking areas
  • Areas with restricted depth
  • Areas requiring discreet drainage
  • Installations with needed chemical resistance
  • Areas with special hygiene concerns
  • Locker rooms and restroom facilities

Select grates that are ADA-compliant. Grate slot sizes should be kept to a minimum to protect high heels, canes, bicycle tires and wheelchairs, while still allowing efficient surface water removal.

Grate Security – ACO recommends that grates should be secured to prevent movement by traffic, which can cause damage to both product and pedestrians.
