Slotdrain - handles everything from a rain drop to a rainstorm with similarly high efficiency

Our core business has traditionally been driven by our success in meeting the heavy demands of the world’s major ports and airports. Gatic’s Slotdrain hexagonal channel profile was originally developed in conjunction with industry professionals from the airport sector.

The concept has proved infinitely scalable and has been developed into a comprehensive range of products suitable for smaller projects such as landscaping schemes, shopping developments and parking facilities. The current Slotdrain range consists of CastSlot, UltraSlot, PaveSlot and FacadeSlot for total design flexibility, and includes complementary accessories.

All channels are manufactured in 3 metre, 1 metre and 0.5 metre lengths of galvanised steel, benefitting from fewer joints and improved flow performance. Bespoke units are available on request to suit specific design requirements and are also available in stainless steel. Gatic Slotdrain channels are suitable for applications up to F900 (depending on the system type). The hexagonal profile ensures our systems can handle everything from a rain drop to a rainstorm with similar efficiency. The V-shaped channel base aids a self-cleansing flow, and a tapered throat helps prevent blockages.


Gatic Slotdrain is mechanically assembled, which eliminates welding and minimises energy usage in the manufacturing process. A signficant proportion of the raw materials used are from recycled sources. Slotdrain is manufactured from sheet steel and is 100% recyclable.
