What is a slot drain system?
A slot drain is a type of channel drainage system but in contrast to other systems, it is not covered by any type of grating, making it tamper-proof and less visually obtrusive when installed.
What are the benefits of using Gatic® Slot Drain?
- Minimal visual impact
The only visible section of the drain is the continuous intake, making it less obtrusive than other drainage systems and providing a superior aesthetic finish.
- Easy and quick to install
Gatic Slotdrain comes in convenient 3-metre prefabricated lengths designed to keep below ground pipework to a bare minimum, thus reducing installation time and holding down both labour and materials costs. While the system is straightforward to set to line and level, curves can be readily achieved using optional 1 metre or 500 mm sections. Feet at the ends of each section, make Slotdrain easy to anchor in the trench and allow a single block of concrete to be poured under and around the main body of the channel, for maximum strength and integrity.
- Strong, durable & impact resistant
Slotdrain’s range of sizes and load bearing capacities make it ideal for all kinds of applications, from residential, commercial and landscaping schemes to the most demanding of heavy industrial and transport projects.
- Comprehensive range & bespoke sizing to suit
We supply a wide range of sizes and load bearing capacities to make it ideal for all kinds of applications, from residential, commercial and landscaping schemes to the most demanding of heavy industrial and transport projects.

- Proven Performance
Slotdrain complies with the relevant parts of BS EN 1433:2002 + A1 2005 for linear drainage channels in areas for pedestrian and/or vehicular traffic for the catchment and drainage of surface water when installed in compliance with Gatic’s installation instructions.
