“Cathedral” Grating for NDS Mini Channel



Trench Drain Systems expanded its decorative offering for NDS Mini Channel with a new pattern of bronze and aluminum grating. The design, borrowed from Chester Cathedral in Chester, England, is heel-proof, subdued and stylish. It adds a solemn aesthetic to the hardscape and hints of a yearning for the innocence of old.


Chester Cathedral, previously Saint Werburgh’s Benedictine Abbey, was built in the 10th century on the site of a church founded in part by the infamous Lady Godiva. The trench grating shown here was more than likely installed during a major rebuilding that occurred in the 1900s.

Bronze Age Grates

Trench Drain Systems added the “Cathedral” grate to their Bronze Age™ decorative grating product line, which now includes over twenty-five different grating patterns. Including a standard slotted grate and several perforated grate patterns. Most of the decorative grates are available in bronze and aluminum.

The bronze grates are available in a brushednatural or aluminum finish.

The aluminum grates are made from a corrosion-resistant alloy and are marine grade providing a saltwater-resistant grate option near coastal areas and saltwater pools.

Each grate lends itself well to drainage applications in elegant outdoor living spaces and swimming pool decks. With two counter-sunk holes allowing the grate to screw into the NDS Mini Channel, these grates are secure for even the most trafficked areas. The channel is manufactured from a durable lightweight polyolefin plastic and is UV-protected. It features straight walls with a hollow, honeycomb architecture. Channels join together via couplers, which ensures a smooth connection that promotes drainage while avoiding debris making it ideal for multiple applications.

This versatile system is completely customizable. With 90° and 45° angles, as well as T-sections available, you may create a drainage plan to meet many specifications.
