CD offers a comprehensive range of stainless steel drainage channels to suit any application and floor finish, combined with the ability to produce bespoke systems. Including:
- Standard Drainage Channel (3000 Series) - With a minimum channel depth of 50mm, these are ideal for use where a high volume of direct discharge waste from process equipment into the floor is required.
- Super Compact Channel (3600 Series) - Conical shaped with no gratings, this drain is easy to maintain. This economical drainage channel fits flush to the floor and requires a 50mm depth.
- Modular Drainage Channel (6000 Series) - Has a shallow channel depth of 40mm and is strictly restricted to 155mm overall width. The 6000 Series is suitable only for tiled, concrete or resin floors.
Our range of floor gullies includes trapped outlet gullies with a range of gratings. Ideally for use in many wash down applications including catering kitchens, abattoirs, dairies and food processing plants.
We supply both mesh and perforated floor gratings for use with our channel drainage systems. Anti-slip, smooth and heel safe options are available.
For the protection of walls, we manufacture a range of buffer rails and corner guards and skirtings in austenitic stainless steel to suit a wide range of wall finishes including tiles, fair-face block work and p.v.c sheeting.
Further to our surface protection range we supply stainless steel kerbs, which are ideal for use in Food processing factories with resin flooring. We offer three types:
- Single Sided Kerbs (8100 series) - These are mainly used around the perimeter area to sit alongside the exterior wall and are then infilled with C30 concrete (or similar) making them very strong and impact resistant. Walling is then built on top.
- Double Sided Kerbs (8200 series) - For sectioning an area into different rooms, the double sided kerbs are ideal. These can cross path using internal and external corner pieces and stop ends.
- Retro Fit Kerbs (8300 series) - For pre-existing walls in refurb situations, retro fit kerbs offer the solution. Also ideal for use in conjunction with the single and double kerbs as a continuation of the protection in cold areas and against block walls.
All bollards and barriers can be either surface mounted or core drilled. All offering Ideal protection from forklift trucks, pallet trucks and passing trolleys.
The covers allow easy access below floor level and are designed with a recessed top to sit resin, tiles or screed flush with the floor. Standard sizes available ex-stock. Heavy duty range also available for trafficked areas to support forklift and pallet trucks.
Component Developments Interior Drainage supplied to P.D. Hook (Hatcheries) Ltd
P.D. Hook (Hatcheries) Ltd is a family-owned business, founded in the 1950s and has grown to become the largest independent hatchery company in the UK and a major player in the UK poultry market. Due to them being extremely busy environment, with the capacity to hatch over 10,000,000 chicks per week, we had to be as hygienic and swift as possible when measuring and installing the custom gratings. Component Developments were approached with this challenge due to us being known for both expertise and hygiene.
We were enquired about designing and manufacturing new stainless steel drainage channels in order to both accept trolly loadings smoothly over the top of them and be as hygienic as possible. Previously their in-situ gratings were made using GRP with large drainage apertures which allowed excellent drainage but gave an uneven surface which could possibly damage the un-hatched eggs. Therefore, the trade-off was 4mm thick perforated grating that gave the smooth finish required along with easier maintenance and reaching the drainage required to ensure fluids went to drain.
While the customer wanted new gratings, they wished to minimise disruption, so we decided to utilise the existing resin-based channel systems, each being measured individually to ensure the width and depth was correct as we discovered multiple differences.
Since supplying these gratings, we have been invited back to site to measure phase two which has now been completed.

Component Developments External Drainage Concord College
Concord College is a co-educational international boarding school for children between the ages of 13 to 19. It has a reputation for impressive grades, and even more impressing facilities. Component Developments’ were approached to help design, manufacture and supply the stainless steel drainage to the exterior of the new science block.
This project was the architect’s final job before he retired, and his tools of choice were a pencil and paper. This meant that Component Development’s had to draw up his designs on AutoCad to ensure the dimensions, and radius of the channels would be exact.
The final design agreed was for curved slot drains and drainage channels that had the same radius as the curve of the building above. Due to the curve in the slot drain, Component Developments had to include multiple discrete access points within the slot drain, which could be infilled and hidden with the floor finish, whilst still allowing access to the system if required.
From drawing approval it took 3 weeks to manufacture and despatch to site as per the request of our client.
The final solution was a sustainable, impressive drainage solution which mirrored the architect’s vision and bought it to life.
