Out buildings and animal facilities require sturdy trench drains that can handle the weight of heavy farming equipment as well as animal waste. Trench drains have become a standard for these types of buildings since dirt and other debris can accumulate quickly. The goal is to control the flow of waste water due to frequent hosing and cleaning of the floor.
Ductile or cast iron grating will withstand the heavy loads of tractors and hoofed animals. There are grating options that are safe for smaller animals too. For the most rugged trench drain applications, consider using cast iron frames to help increase the load capability of your drain.
Trench Drain Systems offers an extensive line of trench drain channels, grates and catch basins with grates in various load ratings, flow rates with livestock friendly options and channels that can handle capacities of 30 – 6,700 Gallons Per Minute.
