Linear Strip Drain Options

Our linear strip drain series offers sleek and modern designs that not only capture water effectively but also add a touch of elegance to any setting.

What is a Linear Drain System?

A linear drain, also known as a linear trench drain, is a type of drain with a long and narrow design.

Unlike traditional grated pits, linear drains extend along the drainage inlet enabling a continuous line of water capture which quickly and efficiently collects and transfers surface water off site.

Our linear drains come complete with an extensive range of grates with a variety of slot sizes, patterns and construction materials to suit different design requirements. This range comprises classic linear grates including our discreet grate for those seeking a minimalist aesthetic.

Benefits of Choosing a Linear Drain System

One of the primary advantages of a linear drain system is that it does not require a pavement to be anything other than flat or level. 

Linear drains offer optimum hydraulic performance, safety, ease of installation and maintenance. Linear drains are also ideal for draining large catchment areas with ease

Applications of our Linear Drains

Linear drains are suitable for a variety of applications, from urban to commercial and civil engineering projects.

Linear drains offer a wide range of grate options to meet the designer’s requirements. Additionally, linear drains are available in general purpose to heavy duty variants. Where construction depths are limited, compact shallow systems are also available as linear drains.

Linear Drain – Frequently Asked Questions

What is a modular linear drain system and how does it work?

A modular linear drain system consists of factory-manufactured trench drains in small lengths for easy transport and handling. The modular linear drains are typically 50mm wide but can range up to 300mm in width. On-site, these modular drains are joined using their male/female interconnecting ends to create a level or continuously sloped run. The system efficiently collects and redirects water while providing a flat and level surface for pavements.

How does the installation of a linear drain differ from grated pits?

Installing a linear drain allows pavements to be flat and level, yet easily drainable. In contrast, grated pits require the pavement to have an undulating surface, which can pose risks of slips, trips, and falls for pedestrians. Linear drains offer a safer and more convenient solution for designers, installers, and pedestrians, as they mitigate against these hazards.

Are linear drains suitable for urban, commercial, and civil engineering applications?

Yes, linear drains are suitable for urban, commercial, and civil engineering applications. They are specified in professionally designed projects, considering factors such as load, hydraulics, and configurations on a project-specific basis. ACO offers a free technical service to address these considerations, and the suitability of linear drains can add significant value to all stakeholders involved. ACO can also manufacture drain covers & trench drains.

How large does a linear drain need to be to provide the right type of drainage?

The size of a linear drain must be determined based on the specific project requirements. This involves conducting a hydraulic analysis using a hydraulic design program. Once the analysis is done correctly, the appropriate size of the linear drain, channel, grate style, and the optimal layout can be specified. ACO provides a trench drain hydraulic service and drawing scheduling layout to assist in this process.
