The TrenchDrain™ Grated Drainage System

What It Does:

Our dealers are often contacted by homeowners who have water flowing into their home through hatchway entrances, down stairways, or through garage door openings.

In these cases, we usually recommend installing our TrenchDrain Grated Drainage System.

This system is specifically designed to span doorways, hatchway entrances, and similar areas. Any water passing over the drain will be collected and directed to your sump pump.

TrenchDrain resembles half of a basement drainage pipe, with a grated opening fitted snugly on top. The grate is flush or slightly below the floor, eliminating any tripping hazard.

Advantages To Our System:

  • Open Drain Collects Water From Stairs
  • Removable Lid For Cleaning & Service
  • Flush With Floor: No Tripping Hazard
  • Compatible With Our Drain System
  • Includes A Written Lifetime Warranty

Our TrenchDrain System has a removable lid that can be taken off to remove leaves, dirt, or debris that could clog your system.

This drain can also be fitted with a ball-and-cup drain -- making it compatible with a radon mitigation system.

Drain Water From Garage Doors

Many homeowners opt to have a TrenchDrain System installed along the opening to their garage door. In this case, the TrenchDrain will collect the water and drain it to a perimeter system and pump.

In these cases, we always recommend installing the drain on the inside of the garage, where it's less likely to freeze in the winter.

Installing our drain inside the garage also protects the system from clogging with leaves, dirt, sand, and other debris that is more abundant outdoors.

The water that leaks in through the garage will also be cleaner by the time it reaches our system.

Draining Hatchway Doors

In the case of hatchway doors, our contractors will generally recommend installing them inside the hatchway entrance when possible.

Since the TrenchDrain includes a grated opening, keeping the drain separated from the actual basement will help keep humidity out of your home.

We Can Install A warrantied Drain Pipe System In Your Home!

Including the TrenchDrain system with your perimeter drain does not add any cost to the completed waterproofing system. Even if your hatchway door isn't leaking right now, we recommend installing this system along those openings, as a future leak is possible.
