PETCO® Open Bottom Trench Drains

Ideal for commercial and industrial applications.

From gas stations to parking lots to factories to warehouses, our trench drains are designed for virtually any heavy-duty application where durability and performance are a must. Manufactured as complete units, these drains offer dependable, trouble-free operation.

Easy Installation. Completed drain units bolt together so that the entire system can be connected before being positioned in the drain trench. This ensures fast, easy installation, provide more rigid support and allows greater control in placement.

No multiple sloping. Unlike many other drains, the system does not require multiple surface sloping. Since the drains are bottomless to allow on-site grading, you have unlimited grade/distance potential. Therefore, you can run a single drain the entire length of the drain area and eliminate the need for multi-sloping.

Single pour installation; no footers or forms. Because the drains are produced with an open bottom, the need for sloped footers and forms is eliminated. All you need to do is position the assembled system in the trench, and pour and grade as you go. You make the footer, form, and grade with one pour, and that saves you time, money, and materials.

Anchor clips are an added benefit. Anchor clips keep the components in position during installation and prevent the system from heaving— even under the most extreme conditions— when the job is complete.

Strong 3/16-inch steel bar grates are standard on both our open bottom and closed bottom trench drain systems. Heavy-duty, reinforced steel grates are available for applications subjected to heavy equipment and will withstand continuous 40-ton traffic. Grates are included with each unit. Special grates quoted on request.
