Shower Channel Drains
Deluxe channel drains and decorative grates

Make a splash in your shower with these unique channel-style drains. The perfect solution for larger showers, shower rooms, or open showers and tiled bathrooms, you can choose from a variety of decorative grates or a convenient tile tray to match your flooring to a tee. Available in a range of lengths, these trench drains are ideal for everything from residential showers, wet rooms, and day spas to health club or gym showers and high school/college locker rooms - you can even use them in residential chef's-style kitchens, basements, or laundry rooms. Wherever you need more than a standard round drain and want a stylish solution, these linear drains are the answer.

StreamLine Linear Shower Drains

For the ultimate in convenient, easy to place, and accessible shower drains, you can't do better than the StreamLine linear drains by Sioux Chief. The internally sloped full length drain body connects directly to your waste pipe - meaning you don't have to worry about cutting tile to fit around a small round drain. Being able to use larger, more closely set tiles with the flush-mount drain cover can help to reduce the risk of tripping and falling, and offers barrier-free access for those in wheelchairs, using walkers, or who have physical or cognitive disabilities.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. "Are these linear drains ADA compliant?"
A. The uncomplicated answer is no, they are not specifically listed as an ADA compliant product by the manufacturer. However, when installed properly the drains and grates are flush with the tile floor surrounding them, making them a good option for larger home showers where wheelchair access is desirable, or for persons who may have limited mobility as there is nothing for them to trip over. Choosing one of the tile-in styles may be helpful for those who have cognitive impairments as it provides a seamless floor appearance with no color/texture changes that could cause the individual to believe there is a step there or object in the way.

Q. "Is the load bearing capacity of these grates suitable for commercial use - say in a restaurant kitchen?"
A. The weight capacity of these grates is 250 lbs of pressure, but the manufacturer has chosen not to test the load bearing capacity of these grates for commercial use. They are recommended only for lighter duty use, such as residential and commercial/public showers, home kitchens, or residential garages and basements (provided heavy things like vehicles are not driven over them).
