The unitized structure makes installation much simpler and faster when compared with installing and getting two individual uprights plumb. Also, the adjustment brackets provide the opportunity to change rough-in dimensions, should the fixture be changed at the last minute.
The siphonic drain is just one component in a siphonic drainage system. These systems should always have the approval of a plumbing engineer, licensed in the locale where the installation is to occur.
Every bit of savings counts on a big job. When you choose an adjustable roof drain you eliminate the need to order multiple extensions in varying heights. Contractors appreciate the fact that this roof drain can accommodate the inevitable inconsistencies in roof insulation thickness. Simply spin the adjustable extension to fit insulation from 1 1/4 inch to 4 inches of thickness.
This combination roof drain and overflow drain is a great labor saver on flat roofs. The attached dual drain deck plate enables both drains to be secured to the roof deck from the top of the roof, eliminates the need for an underdeck clamp, and requires only one rectangular roof penetration—all helping to reduce installation time. Your customers will love it because the dual deck plate recesses the drains just enough to prevent water build-up at the base of the drains prolonging the life of their roof.
Time, budget, and safety are important considerations in every job. Smith’s Roof Drain and Overflow Drain with Deck Plate can help with all three.
The drain eliminates the need for underdeck clamps and is mounted directly to the top deck, so it can be installed by a single person. Because you no longer need a second installer on the floor below, you remove potential safety hazards associated with climbing and save on installation time.
Saving time and labor leads to monetary savings that will help your budget.
Eliminate any risk of leakage at your gasket seals by taking those seals out of the equation. This top mounted drain elevator, as the name suggests, lifts the drain out of the waterway. The only seal required is where the roof waterproofing material is flashed into the drain.
Typical downspout nozzles feature a cow’s tongue design that leaves them vulnerable to nesting birds and rodents. This uniquely designed downspout cover features a preassembled design for easy installation. The cover keeps rodents and birds from nesting inside. It allows the water to flow while preventing tampering with the over- flow roof drain concealed leader. These features re- duce the maintenance required to keep the downspout nozzle functional.
Building owners do not overlook even the smallest details when it comes to aesthetics. This style of downspout cover can be a better fit for a building’s motif than the more traditional downspout nozzle.
Never under estimate the importance of aesthetics to your client. Our cleanouts allow you to exchange our factory covers with scoriated tile or terrazzo covers.
Concrete pours are not a precise science. Once the surface is dry, you often find your cleanouts need adjusting—a fraction lower here, a fraction higher over there. Our Twis-to-Floor cleanouts allow you to make that adjustment with a simple twist.
We designed this labor saving floor drain stabilizer assembly with multi- story building construction in mind. Multiple floors means multiple drains and an increased risk of some of those drains falling over or being knocked out of position prior to and during the pour.
Simply mount this assembly directly onto the “fly-away” form and you eliminate the need to spend time and manpower going from floor to floor resetting misaligned drains.
Are you tired of taping up all your strainer heads before a pour? Or even worse, the time it takes to then remove all that tape? Not only will this protective cover eliminate the need to tape, but it will also protect the finish during shipping, warehousing, and on the job site.
The cover protects the drain top during shipping, warehousing and on the job site.
Instead of waiting for the inevitable call from a building owner complaining of sewer gas odor, it is better to be proactive and install the “Stink Stopper” in any drain that may be used infrequently.
An often overlooked application for a trap seal device is in institutions that close for the summer or long holidays. During these times, drains that usually don’t pose a problem will dry up and students and staff are greeted upon their return by a noxious odor.
Save the drilling until after the building has been erected and the plumbing is in place. As you know, even approved final drawings have a way of changing at the last minute. Specifically designed with tilt-up concrete buildings in mind, this hydrant box will cut your wall hydrant installation labor time by at least 75 percent. Once your walls are in place, you simply core drill a six-inch hole in the wall and slide the hydrant box right in.
The Guardian Dual Check hydrant, with the box, is the go-to choice for contractors working on brick façade buildings. This ergonomic hydrant is designed to fit into the space of one standard brick for easy installation. That adds up to significant time savings because you eliminate extra cuts and mortar repair.
No more shutting off water service to the entire building when performing routine maintenance on hydrants. The Guardian Plus has its own shutoff valve meaning the water will continue to flow everywhere except at the hydrant.
