The demand for effective shallow drainage systems in today’s modern residential builds has never been greater. As floor depths are being squeezed to below 100mm, it is becoming more important than ever to find certified shallow drainage solutions that can meet strict building regulations whilst achieving the correct waste tolerances on-site.
Designed to be installed in the shallowest of floor depths, the BBA approved Linear Screed Drain from CCL Wetrooms with 55mm Lo-Seal Trap technology can deliver on both.
The unique waterless trap allows the drain to be easily installed in any situation. The drain body is mechanically fixed to the slab, whilst the in-built height adjustment allows the outlet to be set at the desired height to allow a sufficient gradient within the waste pipe, usually 15mm per metre.
Designed as the central element of the Linear Screed Drain, the unique Lo-Seal waterless trap at a cutting- edge depth of only 55mm, has been developed specifically for use in wetroom construction projects with screed depths of below 70mm. Made from tough Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS), the trap contains a self-sealing mechanism, which locks into position, keeping the trap sealed when not in use. This ensures that even when the shower is left unused for prolonged periods, the trap cannot dry out and odour cannot enter the room.
The new slimline linear drain allows the waste position to be rotated through 360°, enabling easy installation into any floor type, as well as connecting to existing pipework on-site. Thanks to its uniquely adjustable stainless steel grill, any size or depth of natural stone or porcelain tile from 6mm – 20mm can be accommodated into the Stone-Infill Grill.
Howard Ball, Sales & Marketing Director at CCL Wetrooms commented: “The BBA Approved Lo-Seal Trap offers accredited drainage solutions to Architects, Technical Officers, M&E Consultants and Contractors looking to specify low level drainage into their shallow wetroom construction projects.”
