NDS Micro Channel

The NDS Micro Channel drainage system has a narrow design engineered to catch runoff in pool and spa applications.  Considered heel-proof, Micro Channel’s narrow grate openings allow the plastic channel drain to meet ADA requirements.

Micro Channel’s plastic grate is recessed to increase the strength of an already durable polyethylene channel.  The Micro Channel is a one piece drainage system that comes in ten foot lengths and three colors: white, gray, and sand.

NDS’s Micro Channel product line contains channel accessories that increase the system’s design flexibility, allowing more complex layouts while maintaining a high water evacuation rate.  T-sections, and 90° and 45° channel elbows improve the design range.  End, bottom, and side outlet channel sections allow for the most efficient drainage route available.
