Don't Strain your Drain! Drainage Channels from Greengate's

Drainage is an incredibly important aspect of construc­tion. Inadequate functi­onality of drainage systems can lead to all sorts of structural problems: many of these problems can be avoided with the use of quality drainage channels and ancillaries. A compre­hen­sive collection of these products is available from Greengate's, your local builders merchant.


Sold by the metre at the most competitive price, polychannels from Greengate's are designed to quickly channel run-off water to an existing drainage system. These linear drainage products are made using polyp­ro­pylene, a lightweight recycled material that is also used to create the product's integral grating. Suitable for any application where surface water needs to be transported away, they can be used with equal success on driveways, paths, patios and more.

Each polychannel is equipped with male-female sliding connections, which can be easily connected with or without sealant. This, in addition to incorporated springlock and snaplock functi­onality, means that installing polychannels is much easier and faster compared with other drainage systems.

Turf And Gravel Drainage Cells

Designed to deliver an effective, near-invisible drainage solution for gravel paved surfaces, this remarkable product is the only one of its kind that permits root growth in both horizontal and vertical directions. This allows grass to thrive, creating a lush, filled-in lawn that is reinforced and durable.

Unlike concrete systems, Turf and Gravel Drainage Cells provide a porous layer, allowing the free movement of liquid through the surface and into the ground beneath. In comparison to loose-laid, non-reinforced stone, the stability and rigidity of the surface structure is dramatically increased.

These products, along with other drainage channel solutions, can be found in the dedicated 'Drainage Channels' section of the Greengate's website. Check out the collection today and get in touch with our expert team if you have any further questions.
