The NDS Dura Slope
When it comes to pre sloped trench drain systems, the NDS Dura Slope is a great choice. This pre sloped system offers a high degree of configuration ability. For starters, grate options come in plastic, cast iron, ductile iron, galvanized steel and stainless steel. Frames can also be added for added security and stability. The channels come numbered with arrows for fast and easy installation.
The NDS dura slope is one of the most successful and versatile in its price class. The system consists of 33 channel sections, 24 pre-sloped sections with a .7% slope and 9 neutral section. The system also has a catch basin with option trash bucket. The trash bucket is easily removable for fast and easy debris disposal.
The NDS dura slope channels come in 2 foot (48″) sections, with grip #3 and #4 rebar and added support allowing for easy placement of a wide range of 6″ grates. Dura slope channels can also come in shallow and deep profiles with depths ranging from 4″ to 12″. Depending on expected water volume, there really is a depth for any environment. Systems come ready straight off the shelf or can be configured to fulfill exact specifications.
Dura slope has been used in applications including airports, breweries, tracks, warehouses and indoor plant grow houses. Because of the ease of grate interchangeability, there’s a right grate for any job. The sloped channel sections enable the Dura Slope system to reach lengths of 96 feet with continuous slope. The use of neutral channel sections can be implemented and used hand in hand with the pre sloped channels to reach lengths of upwards of 125 feet. If planned out properly, and maximizing placements of catch basins and outflows, the dura slope can reach lengths upwards of 250 feet.
The ease of connectivity between channels and Profit locking system enables a high level of system effectiveness and adds a level of support. The EZ track class adds couplers which can make this sloped trench drain application sufficient for radius, perimeter and circular applications such as pools and enclosures.
