The Dura Slope trench drain system consists of neutral and pre-sloped sections of trench drain. Manufactured from HDPE, this trench drain offers a durable alternative to concrete channel that will save time and reduce cost at installation.
The patented EZ Flow Poly-Rock aggregate is uniquely engineered with “*flow channels” designed to increase void space — and is engineered for improved water flow rates, greater storage capacity and structural integrity to resist compaction.
NDS Pop-Up drainage Emitters act as the discharge point of a drainage system, opening easily when needed to allow water to flow freely from the pipe and away from structural foundations.
The drainage companion to the pop-up emitter is the Flo-Well. This discharge component is an easy to install and sustainable solution for stormwater runoff. Flo-Well units collect, retain, and discharge stormwater on-site, offering a gravel-free alternative to a traditional dry well.
Catch Basins can have a major impact on proper landscape drainage. NDS has a variety of catch basins to ensure a proper solution to every drainage need.
NDS Permeable Paver Systems are designed to provide design professionals with an alternative paving solution to concrete, asphalt or similar surfaces.
