The Uses of Linear Channel Drainage

The Uses of Linear Channel Drainage

What is Linear Channel Drainage

Linear Channel Drains are a popular drainage item used all over the world with a wide number of uses. Here we will explain how channel or linear drains work. 

Channel drains are made up of a channel covered with a grating. The main use is to drain water away from areas, such as residential property. Linear channel drains should be placed where water will gather as they use gravity to drain. 

Linear Drainage Channels will remove surface water away from a designated area which helps to reduce the risk of flooding. Effectively installing channel drainage on properties is a fundamental part of flood prevention. 

Types and Uses of Linear Channel Drainage

Channel drains come in two types. The standard type is channels that have a regular depth, and the other types have built in inclines. The regular type is most commonly applied for short drains in places such as residential properties. 

Linear channel drains can come in a variety of sizes and be made from a range of materials such as stainless steel, polymer concrete, and more. The goal of a certain drain will decide which type is most appropriate. 

Channel drainage systems are less deep than alternative drainage systems, which makes them a good choice for drainage in places with pre-existing underground utilities. This type of drainage will help prevent flooding and keep your property clean of stagnant water. 

In addition to this, by installing a linear channel drainage system on a property, you can significantly lower the amount of soil erosion. It is particularly useful in locations near rivers, lakes, or the sea, where water runoff is more likely to occur.
