Strong, durable slot drain with an unobtrusive finish
Gatic® Slot Drain handles everything from a raindrop to a rainstorm with almost the same high efficiency. Originally designed to meet the heavy demands of the world’s biggest ports and airports, this product has proven infinitely scalable and has been developed into a comprehensive range of products suitable for smaller projects such as landscaping schemes, shopping developments and parking facilities.
The unobtrusive design of Gatic’s slot drain means that it is aesthetically pleasing to the eye, is simple to install and benefits from reduced maintenance and installation costs.
Why choose Gatic® Slot Drain?
Minimal visual impact
Slotdrain’s continuous intake slot is the only outward indication of the highly efficient surface water drainage system that lies just out of sight.
Easy & quick to install
Designed to keep below ground pipework to a minimum, thereby reducing installation time and both labour and materials costs.
Strong, durable & impact resistant
Initially designed to withstand the heavy demands of the world’s major airports and ports. This concept was then developed to suit smaller projects.
We supply a wide range of sizes and load bearing capacities making this product ideal for all kinds of applications, from residential, commercial and landscaping schemes to the most demanding of heavy industrial and transport projects.
If your project requirements can’t be achieved with our standard range of products or you have a particularly unusual problem to overcome, we can arrange the design and manufacture of custom components suit your needs.
Load rating from A15 to F900
Gatic Slotdrain channels are suitable for applications up to F900 (depending on the system type). The systems can handle everything from a raindrop to a rainstorm with similar efficiency.
Our range of products
Gatic Slotdrain comes in a comprehensive range to suit your specific requirements:
PaveSlot is used to drain external hard surface areas, where a neat, unobtrusive and aesthetic appearance is required. The system is typically used with paving units, laid against the top edge of the channel.
Throat spacer perforations allow any subsurface water that may have settled under paving units, besides the channel, to percolate and move into the channel body. The system is suitable for all paved areas, in public and commercial projects, which may be subject to occasional traffic by delivery and service vehicles.
A15kN to C250kN
Available channel widths:
100mm, 150mm, 225mm, 300mm, 350mm, 400mm, 500mm, 600mm
A discreet surface drainage channel that can be installed directly against a building, wall or other external landscape feature, to provide effective drainage of surface liquids from vertical surfaces, door thresholds and the adjacent pavement area.
FacadeSlot channels can be made to follow the building perimeter whether straight or curved. The system can accommodate rainwater downpipes which, when positioned over a simple rainwater inlet box, can eliminate the need for a separate drainage network for the roof area, achieving a more efficient drainage design.
Load Classification: A15 (Bespoke units can be made which are suitable for up to D400)
Available channel widths:
50mm, 75mm, 115mm
