Threshold Drains: The Little Detail Making a Big Difference

With Spring around the corner, now is the perfect time to start thinking about your next garden project. Here, we’re going to delve in to a subtle yet essential aspect of architecture and landscaping – Threshold Drains. These sleek, unassuming channels play a crucial role in managing water flow at transition points, adding both aesthetic charm and functional efficiency to your spaces.

Threshold drains, also known as channel drains or linear drains, are specialised drainage systems designed to efficiently manage water runoff in various architectural and outdoor settings. Unlike traditional point drains, which are localised and often placed in a central area, threshold drains are long, narrow channels typically installed at the transition points between different surfaces, such as doorways, driveways, patios, or other areas where water might accumulate.
