Stormtech has been providing inspiring architectural drainage solutions to architects and designers for the last 20 years. Used in bathrooms, showers, thresholds, paved areas, driveways, pools and pool surrounds, Stormtech grates and drains are known for sleek design, innovation and practicality.
Linear drain systems play a vital role in ensuring adequate drainage in internal and external locations. The use of grated drains is very popular in shower recesses, especially in designs using frameless screens and no step downs or hob designs.
As the pioneer of linear drains in Australia, Stormtech has been a Member of the Standards Australia Committee and involved in the writing of the code covering lineal drainage in bathrooms since 2006.
Stormtech linear drainage systems are made of high quality stainless steel and are manufactured in Australia; the system is modular which means they can be cut, on-site, to different lengths as required, and come in three different standard widths - 38 mm, 65 mm and 100mm. For site specific requirements, custom fabrication is also available. The system connects directly with all standard plumbing fittings and all products have a Watermark Standards Australia International certification.
Stormtech drains are used in prestige residential and commercial projects in Australia and internationally, such as the Crown Metropol in Melbourne, the Olivia Newton John Wellness Centre at the Austin Hospital in Melbourne, or the recent QT Hotel in Sydney.
The product range of Stormtech for residential and commercial applications includes:
The AR, PH and PS Series are narrow profile and high efficiency drainage systems that create an aesthetically pleasing solution to the traditional grated drain. Available as a modular system with PVC or stainless steel channel or as a made to measure system that will be manufactured to specific lengths. The grates are available in architectural wedgewire style or in punched hole or punched slot versions for more budget orientated projects.
Tile Insert Drains:
The Stormtech TIF Series is designed to blend the drainage system perfectly with any chosen solid floor surface.
Square drains: The SQ Series is a more traditional square drain, available with an architectural wedgewire grate or a tile inset frame.
In recent years the use of drains in door tracks and thresholds is becoming more common. With integrated concealed box sections stopping rainwater entering the house, these drainage systems are of special importance to protect timber flooring. Stormtech has been developing and improving its Threshold Series over the last 10 years. Available with an architectural wedgewire grate or a tile insert frame.
The VC Series allows the use of linear grates in a vinyl floor, which makes it the perfect choice for hospitals, commercial kitchens, schools, etc.
The 65G100 and 38G90 have been developed for high capacity drainage needs, providing greater flexibility in landscape and pool design. The system utilises a UPVC channel connected via downpipes at 200mm interval to sockets in the drain pipe below and is then completed with a stylish stainless steel grate.
The SD90 is used for stormwater run-off and surface water drainage around driveways, paved areas, sporting areas and garden edges. It features a 25mm opening, draining into a concealed 90mm drainpipe. It can now be completed with a stainless steel grate.
