Dead Level® Trench Drains

Trench drain installation just got a whole lot easier. Make channel floating, pinching and misalignment a thing of the past. The uniquely engineered Dead Level® system’s frame anchored design ties rebar to the structural frame, not the channels, eliminating floating and pinching during the concrete pour. Its solid flanged channel, end cap and frame connections create proper joints and alignment every time.

Tired of struggling to cut trench drain pieces to fit your installation? The Dead Level® system comes in standard 4 ft. sections as well as 1 ft. straight and combination corner/tee sections for flexibility on uneven runs, eliminating the need for cutting in the field. Standard plastic construction covers protect grates and keep trench drains free of debris during construction.

Still not sure? We believe if you see Dead Level®, you’ll be convinced it’s the best trench drain system on the market. Contact your local Watts representative today to schedule an appointment.
