Bronze Age Logo

Since 2015, Trench Drain Systems has been developing decorative grating for the exclusive Bronze Age product line. This decorative line is made in America and uses durable bronze, stainless, and galvanized material to maintain a sleek and stylish look, especially when installed within a drainage system.

The NDS Spee-D® Channel trench drain system is a 4.75″ PVC channel drain designed for residential and light commercial applications. The drainage kits come with a lightweight neutral channel, end cap/outlet, couplers, hold-down screws, and metal grates (304 stainless or galvanized steel). Be aware that 316L stainless steel is necessary for saltwater or marine applications. All decorative metal Spee-D® Channel grating styles are ADA-compliant, heel-proof, and available in 24″ or 48″ lengths.

Although the Spee-D® Channel drainage kits in our online store only go up to 40′, TDS can provide a free quote for larger projects or for 316L grating.
