Dead Level Trench Drain System

Product Announcement from Watts

Dead Level Trench Drain System-Image

Trench drains just got a whole lot easier. Make channel floating, pinching and misalignment a thing of the past. The uniquely engineered Dead Level™ system's frame anchored design ties rebar to the structural frame, not the channels, eliminating problems during the concrete pour. Its solid flanged channel, end cap and frame connections create proper joints and alignment.

Tired of struggling to cut trench drain pieces to fit your installation? The Dead Level™ system comes in standard 4 ft. sections as well as 1 ft. straight and combination corner/tee sections for flexibility on uneven runs, eliminating the need for cutting in the field. Standard plastic construction covers protect grates and keep trench drains free of debris during construction. See it in action, watch our Dead Level™ overview video.
