    Slot Drains

    Vodaland’s Slot Drains are highly favoured in Canada due to their versatility, cost-effectiveness, and advantages. Slot drainage systems are a popular alternative to traditional trench drains in both commercial and residential projects, thanks to their capacity to handle heavy loads and nearly invisible drainage.


    Slot grates differ from traditional grates primarily in the width of the open slot trench drain. Although narrower, linear slot drains still offer a significant volume of water flow. Vodaland provides three main slot drain options: MICRO, STANDARD, and WALL slot drain systems. Additionally, our new Mini Slot Drain product line, an all-in-one channel and slot made entirely of stainless steel, provides an aesthetically appealing solution for slot drain applications.

    What is the difference between Slot Drains and Trench Drains?

    Floor drains are essential for proper drainage systems, and trench floor drains are a popular option. However, these utilize a flat grate that is fully visible and removable after installation. For those seeking an inconspicuous solution, a slot drain may be more suitable. Unlike traditional trench drains, slot drains have a narrow channel that creates a thin slot at the surface, making them the least visible option once installed. Once encased, slot drains cannot be removed. If you are interested in learning more about slot drain systems and how they appear once installed, you can refer to our slot drain installation guide, which can be found on each product page.  

    How does the cleanout and cleanout slot top work?

    A cleanout is an essential component of any drainage system that functions as a collection point for water before it exits through the piping system. It includes a basket for collecting large debris and allows smaller sediment to settle at the bottom, which helps to prevent the risk of blockages in your piping system. 

    The top of the cleanout is designed to look seamless with the rest of your slot drain system. You can fill the sides of the cleanout to match your floor, and the top can still be removed for regular maintenance wear. If you have a slot drain system, it is crucial to keep it clean so it remains functional. Slot drains have a narrow channel, which means they require intense cleaning.  

    To facilitate the cleaning process, a slot drain cleaner tool is a great addition to your cleanout. This tool is designed to push all the contents within the slot toward the debris basket, ensuring that your drainage system is functioning correctly.  

    Do I need to buy covers?

    We sell covers for this system which protect the slot opening from unwanted debris and safeguard pedestrians from the risk of injury due to the slot opening. The covers are stainless steel and are ADA/Heelproof to allow for barefoot traffic. We offer our covers in 3 design options: slotted, raindrop, and maple leaf (maple leaf's jagged shape does not allow for barefoot traffic). Please note that the covers are to be applied before installation, and are not removable afterwards. 

    Why Vodaland slot drains?

    We create our slot drains to be a perfect balance between durability and cost-effectiveness. The listed slot drain price available on our website cannot be matched, even including our Standard slot drain, which has the same load class as many heavy-duty slot drains on the market. The large plastic channels also provide superior flow velocity in comparison to the smaller all-in-one options available by competitors. 

    Where can I find pre-sloped channels?

    Vodaland has just released their new pre-slope polypropylene slot drain system which will allow for 1% pre-slope up to 8m in length. We as well offer our special-order concrete channel drains in 0.5% and 1% pre slope. If you require a pre-slope slot drain floor plan, contact a Vodaland representative for assistance.

    Available load classes for our Slot Drains:

    Load Class A - pedestrian foot traffic

    Load Class B - Residential vehicle traffic (no parking) and yard equipment

    Load Class C - Vehicle parking and commercial vehicle traffic

    WHAT MAKES SLOT DRAINS DIFFERENT FROM TRENCH DRAINS?

    The main difference between a slot trench drain and traditional trench drainage systems is the width of the open slot. The slot is narrower than on traditional trench drain systems. Despite this, slot drains still offer a significant volume of water flow, making them an efficient and effective drainage solution for a wide range of applications.

    At Vodaland, we offer three main slot drain system options: MICRO slot drain system, STANDARD slot drain system, and WALL slot drain system. Each system has unique features and is suitable for different applications.

    The MICRO is only 1" in height of slot grate and is good for small areas and thin paving materials.

    The STANDARD slot drain is 4" in height of slot grate and is mostly used for brick paving or concrete pouring.

    The WALL slot drain system is ideal when you need to install it against an existing wall or foundation. It is also 4" in height of slot grate.

    SOME TECHNICAL INFO ON VODALAND'S SLOT DRAIN SYSTEM

    All channels come with a standard size 3.3 ft (1 m) in length and 4" in internal channel width. 

    The depth of a channel varies, depending on the amount of water you need to remove and the technical conditions of your base.

    The available depths of channels are: 2", 3", 4", 6" and 8". They come with two end caps and can be connected in line with no additional adapters. Also, there is not any special adapter needed to connect two channels on 90 degrees.

    Channels with depth 4", 6" and 8" have a side (cut-out) outlet with 3" diameter, bottom (cut-out) outlet with 4" diameter and end cap (cut-out) outlet with 3" diameter.

    Our channel with 3" depth has 4" diameter outlet at the bottom and our channel with 2" depth has 3" diameter outlet at the bottom of a channel.

    The height of MICRO slot drain is 1". STANDARD and WALL slot drain systems have 4" height. The opening side - the part of the system which is on top of the surface - is 5/8" for all of our slot trench drain system types.

    In addition, you can order a slot grate cover that will prevent the system from developing large debris inside of it.
