Hubbell makes a number of cast and ductile iron grates for their 6” wide, pre-sloped trench drain systems, Polycast 600 and 700. The most common ductile iron gratings are the standard slotted grate (641D) and the heel-proof, transverse slotted (675HD).

Learn about Mini Channel Kits
We started offering complete Mini Channel kits because the system is so customizable and easy to work with. Why wouldn’t homeowners and landscapers love it?
Mini Channel kits feature straight walls with a hollow, honeycomb architecture. Channels join to one another via couplers, which ensures a smooth connection that promotes drainage without catching debris.
Over time we expanded grating options that fit the 3 inch channel drain. Now you can purchase a landscaping drain kit with decorative plastic, cast iron, aluminum or bronze grates. For bigger projects, give our partners, Trench Drain Systems, a call (610-638-1221).
Looking for an affordable drainage kit that’s stronger than your standard patio channel drain?
Try the 3 inch Pro Series kit by NDS. With a deeper channel than the Mini Channel system, the 3 inch Pro Series captures more water. Each kit is 1 meter (40″) long with end caps and outlet included. Every channel features an optional bottom knockout for outlet pipe placement.
Or, upgrade your patio drain to a 5 inch Pro Series kit. This larger channel drain will catch higher water volume than other patio drains. 90-degree and 45-degree angles extend the run and allow a wider ranger of possibilities for channel design.
One of the perks of choosing Pro Series channel kits is the gripping ribs located every 4 inches along channels. The extra surface area helps hold the drain in the concrete long after installation.
DrainageKits.com now offers the Zurn Z884, a 4.75 inch wide low profile channel drain, with cast iron or stainless steel top covers. It’s your simple, stylish solution to everyday patio drainage problems.
Why pick a Z884 Patio Kit?
It’s made from HDPE, so it’s lightweight an non-absorbent.
Channels fit together with a tongue-and-groove mechanism. Simple!
It’s wide enough to catch all your water and shallow enough for no-hassle installations.
You choose between a sleek perforated steel or the sturdy slotted iron cover.
The perforations on the stainless steel cover help prevent leafy debris from entering the channel drain. Meanwhile, the properties of the stainless steel grate prevent rust and corrosion. Weather exposure and pool treatments won’t bring this channel drain down.
Installation is a cinch. Just follow the instructions we send with the kit!
DrainageKits.com is excited to offer a growing selection of NDS landscaping pipe grates for lawns and gardens … just in time for Spring!
Eliminate standing water with 8” or 9” square grates that connect directly to PVC piping. Or, keep your pipe grates protected from rogue lawnmowers by installing an NDS atrium grate on top of your piping.
Pipe grates help turn harmful lawn runoff into a water source. Use standing water to hydrate the yard where it needs it most by connecting to a Pop-Up Emitter. Pop-Up Emitters open with hydrostatic pressure and close once the flow lessens, preventing grass clippings and leafy debris from entering the drainage pipes. It’s a low-key drainage solution your lawn will thank you for.
