Orca Polymer concrete is a versatile, durable, composite material produced by mixing a variety of mineral fillers with a synthetic or natural resin binding agent. This advanced engineering material is used in many industries but is most common in the building and construction industries where its long life and material properties make it ideal for trench drain.
A trench drain (also can be called channel drain, line drain, slot drain, linear drain or strip drain) is a specific type of drain containing a dominant trough or channel-shaped body that form a line of trench. It is used for the rapid evacuation of surface water or for the containment of utility lines or chemical spills.
Trench drain are usually employed when there is a large outdoor opening space, Edges of building for water protection and area that have excess water.
