One of the more notable trends in today’s home architecture movement is the push towards open-air living, dissolving the traditional barriers between the indoor and outdoor spaces – but this raises issues with drainage… Meet the Threshold Drain
April 6th, 2018
Stormtech’s Threshold Drain drainage system marries exquisite low-impact design with excellent drainage possibilities for today’s open-air home designs.
Developed over 20 years ago as a requirement for special needs access, the threshold drain was originally designed to eliminate the ‘trip-and-slip’ hazards of stepdown partitions, delivering uninterrupted access between indoor and outdoor living areas.
Complementing a range of open-plan doorway constructions, the threshold drain has emerged today as a hallmark of chic, sleek and practical drainage, and a cornerstone of today’s trendsetting ‘bring the outdoors in’ design movement.
Threshold is a defining example of elegance in simplicity. The low-profile design consists of an external lineal grate which sits flush beside the doortrack, in precise alignment with the ground surface. An integrated, concealed, subsill collects water flows and condensation around the doorway, conveying it to the external drainage system. The drain integrates elegantly into sliding door tracks, bi-folds or hinged doors, is compatible with major door manufacturers and available in 5 different styles of grate designs, including the Marc Newson tessellated pattern.
Threshold’s streamlined, low-impact, structure acts as both water barrier and active water conduit, ensuring excellent drainage possibilities between the indoor/outdoor divide.
As one of Australia’s most respected drainage manufacturers and suppliers, Stormtech is committed to delivering the highest quality drainage solutions for today’s unique building projects.
Stormtech’s skilled specialists work closely with specifiers, architects and builders to offer tailored drainage solutions, including bespoke drawings and plans for customised drainage designs for all Australian environments.
Stormtech works proactively with plumbing advisory services to ensure drainage is not only fit for purpose, but meets stringent Building Code of Australia (BCA) compliance measures.
