Restaurant Drainage

Kitchen Drainage

Drainage should be one of the top items on the list when designing commercial kitchens. Drains need to be installed in the correct location and fit the intended purpose at the beginning of the project. Effective drainage is critical to deter bacteria growth from pooling liquids and other food debris. Environmental health officers are quick to shut down restaurants with poor hygiene standards. Proper maintenance must also be considered in order to ensure that drains do not foster a habitat for rodents and other pests.

In existing structures, renovating the drainage system can become a complicated situation. Digging up floors and drilling through walls may be required not to mention special permits for specific circumstances. Many find it easier to design the kitchen around the drainage that’s already there.

3 Considerations

Grease, Oil & Fats

Although most drains have the capacity to direct fatty debris, it is best if sorted at the source and disposed of properly. It will save you a lot of headaches and clogged drains later.

Hot Stuff

When selecting a trench drain system, remember to consider any extreme temperatures and any harsh sanitary chemicals. Our experts can help you find the right system.

Good Housekeeping

Ensure that drainage systems are a part of the maintenance schedule and regularly checked. Clogged drains slow flow rates and harbor bacteria.
