The project architect of the Lubbock Cooper ISD Middle School in Lubbock TX required a trench drain to conform to the inside perimeter of the school's regulation running track. 6" wide NDS Dura Slope Trench Drain was specified for the job based on the potential time-savings during installation. The installing crew was able to prep and install the job quickly due to the lightweight nature of the material, and tongue and groove Dura Loc™ joints ensured precise alignment during installation with snap-lock mechanisms to eliminate joint movement. Labor reduction was also provided on the job site by Dura- Slope's pre-sloped channels. Overall, the installation went smoothly and quickly, with significant cost-savings.
