It is critical to keep your basement and other areas dry from surface water and moisture. In order to prevent water from flooding through the walkout basement doors, bilco doors, and garage doors, it’s best to stick with a basement entrance drainage system like GrateTrench™.
The GrateTrench™ prevents water from ever entering your basement. The system includes a drainage channel with a grated cover. It’s typically installed above bulkheads, at the base of basement stairs and across exterior doorways. It also includes a closed valve system, preventing odors from stagnant water from infiltrating your home. The GrateTrench™ works directly with basement drainage systems like GrateDrain™, so you never have to worry about water or moisture damaging your basement.
The GrateTrench™ offers many valuable features including:
- It can be used around hot water tanks, as well as overflow water pipes
- Easy to assemble due to its pre-sloped design
- Its cantilever system enables it to open and close automatically
- Reliable, fast, and economical
By reducing the chances of water and moisture getting into your home, you avoid mold and mildew, rotting wood, foul odors, and the potential structural weakening that comes with them.
