Our company has successfully completed many channel drain installations over the years; we proudly cater to our clients and offer tailored yard drainage solutions that suit your property and specific needs.
Channel Drains - What Are They?This is the general term for linear drainage systems that include channels together with inlet details that are embedded in the hardscaped surfaces. These channels are longer than they are wide, having a cross-sectional dimension design. It effectively contains the flow from all surfaces surrounding the feature. The channels body may be made of concrete, plastic, polymer or steel.
The embedded inlet details of these features can vary significantly in design. They may be made of materials such as polymer, steel or composite gratings, with barely visible slots. These slots are typically a component of the structure of the channel that is installed below the surface. Channel drains are structural forms that are crucial to the performance of your landscape drainage system.
What Are The Benefits of Channel Drains?There are a number of benefits to getting channel drains installed such as:
- Cost-effective - These linear systems offer substantial economic benefits over standard point drainage installations. This is because they have a less complex construction and reduced underground piping that results from the elimination of multiple levels and falls.
- Suitable for a variety of settings - Because channel drains tend to be shallower than most other drains, they are particularly well-suited when drainage construction is required in areas with complex underground utilities and services. Since these drains have lesser depth, they do not need extensive trench support either.
- Higher water collection capacity - Unlike point drains, a channel drainage system collects water from more than one location simultaneously all along its length. This gives it a higher capacity which significantly reduces the chances of water pooling or streaming in the landscape. It is also why these installations are used in spaces where water needs to be evacuated quickly in an efficient manner (generally in hardscaped areas):
- Low profile - Channel drains are far easier to configure and easily blend into their settings much more easily. Due to these advantages, most property owners prefer these features over point drains.
Custom Installation of Channel DrainsNot all channel drains are created equal, however. There are different types and models that may be used in a landscape project. If you want to ensure that these features perform optimally, their material needs to be chosen with care and the installation handled expertly.
