NDS Inc. Introduces the Dura Slope™ Trench Drain System

Staff | September 28, 2010

NDS, Inc. has expanded its drainage product offerings with the addition of the innovative Dura Slope trench drain system. A lightweight, easy-to-install alternative to traditional concrete products, the Dura Slope features a strong, durable design to ensure maximum performance capabilities.

Engineered to intercept and collect surface water runoff and compatible with three-inch, four-inch, six-inch or eight-inch pipe, the system consists of an in-line catch basin, 24 pre-sloped channel sections and nine neutral channel sections. The sloped channel sections enable the system to extend to a length of 96 feet with a continuous slope, while neutral channels can be added to extend the length of the system. By incorporating central collection through the use of the catch basin assembly, the Dura Slope system can be extended to lengths up to 266 feet to accommodate a range of drainage needs.


The catch basin and channels feature a pre-installed ProFit™ locking system, which maintains structural integrity during installation. Also, for easier installation, each channel and in-line catch basin is equipped with LeveLoc™ integral re-bar supports. Located at 24-inch intervals along the sides, these re-bar supports include an internal protruding knob for easy gripping and height adjustment. In addition, the DuraLoc™ tongue-and-groove ends allow for a precise fit and feature joints with a snap-lock assemblage to prevent joint movement during installation. Each channel section is also molded with a bottom outlet, allowing for system versatility and ensuring proper drainage.

Providing a solution for residential, commercial, industrial and municipal drainage needs, the system is available with a variety of grate material options, including cast iron, structural foam, galvanized steel and stainless steel. The Dura Slope can be installed in a variety of settings including driveways, parking areas, warehouses, loading docks, gas station entrances, commercial pools and fire stations.
