Where can I find drain specs?

Find detailed specifications and accessory options in our detailed floor drain brochure.

Why is stainless steel used for hatcheries?

Stainless steel’s durability and resistance to corrosion and bacteria make it the ideal material for hatcheries, which need frequent cleaning and the ability to withstand heavy traffic.

What drains work best for hatcheries?

Trench drains are good for areas such as hatcher rooms and washing and chick-handling spaces, where eggshells and other detritus need to be efficiently removed during washdowns. Their smaller entry ports make narrower floor drains suitable in hallways and less polluted areas. Our product specialists can assess your hatchery’s needs and help you determine the appropriate solutions.

Do you supply drain accessories?

Yes! Our floor, floor sink, trench, slot, and hub drain systems come with all the necessary p-traps, cleanouts, baskets, covers, and laterals.
