Usually specified for high-end architectural use, this linear shower drain by Stormtech is designed with a genuine consideration for the environment. Using wedge wire as the grating, lineal drains immediately reduce the amount of problem-causing debris entering the waterways.
Hair is a common cause of major plumbing blockages. Traditionally, extremely strong chemicals are used to break up these blockages. These chemicals cause extreme damage to the environment, and cannot be used at all in many modern bio-cycle systems. Stormtech grates avoid this problem by forming a physical block to large debris like hair.
