THE ORIGINAL SLOT DRAIN®
Over the past three decades, Slot Drain® has been specified by architects and engineers throughout North America. Slot drains® are utilized in USDA inspected food and beverage manufacturing facilities, as well as other industrial and manufacturing facilities. Some of these industries include: breweries, wineries and other beverage sectors, as well as meat, dairy, seafood, specialty foods, bakeries, and more.
ADVANTAGES of SANITARY SLOT DRAINS®
Conventional industrial drains have grates, which mostly serve as support for traffic passing over the drains. Sanitary slot drains® eliminate these cumbersome grates. They have a highly effective basin and large strainer basket (with ½” perforations) at the end of each run. The strainer basket prevents clogs, and helps ensure the slot drain® system is always working at full capacity. Slot drains are perfectly suited for retrofit/renovation projects. Sections are modular, with 1/16″ slope from one end, to the basin.
Why is Slot Drain® the most sanitary drain?
SLOT DRAIN® DURABILITY FOR HEAVY TRAFFIC
Slot Drain has 2 heavy forklift capable versions, for high flow or medium flow applications. These can handle many types of heavy traffic conditions. (see below for specifications)

CLEANING SLOT DRAINS
The cleaning process is quite simple. At the end of each shift, simply use the cleaning paddle..you just insert the paddle, twist 90 degrees and move it along the drain to clear the debris…simply “sweep” the debris down the length of the drain, into the basket. Lift out the basket, and empty.
Slot drains® may be sanitized with the cleaning brush, which fits into the slot and is capable of scrubbing the interior of the drain.
HISTORY OF SLOT DRAIN®
The invention of slot drain® over 35 years ago, solved the issues of reducing drain installation costs, bacterial concerns, maintenance costs, and worker health considerations. Slot Drain® was the world’s first grate-less trench drain solution, allowing for the same drainage performance without the hassles of a grated trench.
Slot Drain® was the first pre-sloped, prefabricated drain system. The sturdy, load bearing design of Slot Drain® can handle machinery, fork lifts and vehicle weight, with no need to constantly replace costly grating.
