Project Design Brief
Designers were focused on the aesthetics of the facility and wanted a discreet drainage system that was visually integrated with the pavement design. Public safety was an equal priority so the drain inlet opening could not be larger than 10mm. A durable drainage material was also required as indoor wet areas are regularly cleaned with strong chemicals.
- SlotChannel with 10mm slot and safety edge
- The discreet and slim 10mm slot is suitable for pool users and spectators
- SlotChannel is manufactured from grade 316 stainless steel for enhanced corrosion resistance
- The outlet units were manufactured with the Tile Insert grate to visually preserve the discreet finish of the drainage system
