Overflow Drain Deck Plate

Roof Drain and Overflow Drain with Deck Plate

1800 ROOF DRAIN

  • Installs from the top of the roof deck
  • Recesses drains slightly to avoid water build-up at the base
  • Requires only one rectangular roof penetration
Roof Drain and Overflow Drain

Pro Tip

This combination roof drain and overflow drain is a great labor saver on flat roofs. The attached dual drain deck plate enables both drains to be secured to the roof deck from the top of the roof, eliminates the need for an underdeck clamp, and requires only one rectangular roof penetration—all helping to reduce installation time. Your customers will love it because the dual deck plate recesses the drains just enough to prevent water build-up at the base of the drains prolonging the life of their roof.

Overflow Drain Deck Plate

Low Profile Dome Roof Drain With Deck Plate

1010 RDP LOW PROFILE DOME ROOF DRAIN

  • Speed. Installs using fasteners from the top of roof only. No under deck clamp required.
  • Reliability. The drain is installed in a recess to prevent a water dam.
  • Simplicity. Roof penetrations are square, not round, saving time
Roof_Drain Overflow DrainDeck Plate

Pro Tip

Time, budget, and safety are important considerations in every job. Smith’s Roof Drain and Overflow Drain with Deck Plate can help with all three.

The drain eliminates the need for underdeck clamps and is mounted directly to the top deck, so it can be installed by a single person. Because you no longer need a second installer on the floor below, you remove potential safety hazards associated with climbing and save on installation time.

Saving time and labor leads to monetary savings that will help your budget.

Top Mount Drain Elevator

Top Mount Drain Elevator

1010DEK DRAIN ELEVATOR

  • Top mount reversible collar eliminates the need for a conventional extension, underdeck clamp and sump receiver
  • Drain Elevator is outside of the waterway, eliminating leaks
  • Top adjustment at deck for an easier and more secure installation
  • The cast thread design provides for a quick adjustment—up or down with just one turn
  • Adjustable to compensate for insulation thickness. Overall adjustment height of 6-3/4”
Roof Drain Overflow DrainDeck Plate

Pro Tip

Eliminate any risk of leakage at your gasket seals by taking those seals out of the equation. This top mounted drain elevator, as the name suggests, lifts the drain out of the waterway. The only seal required is where the roof waterproofing material is flashed into the drain.

Downspout

Downspout Nozzle

1775 Downspout Nozzle

Easy Installation, Low Maintenance

Typical downspout nozzles feature a cow’s tongue design that leaves them vulnerable to nesting birds and rodents. This uniquely designed downspout cover features a preassembled design for easy installation. The cover keeps rodents and birds from nesting inside. It allows the water to flow while preventing tampering with the over- flow roof drain concealed leader. These features re- duce the maintenance required to keep the downspout nozzle functional.

Downspout Nozzle tip

Pro Tip

Building owners do not overlook even the smallest details when it comes to aesthetics. This style of downspout cover can be a better fit for a building’s motif than the more traditional downspout nozzle.

TWIS-TO-FLOOR_ 4000 SERIES CLEANOUTS

Twist-To Floor® 4000 Series Cleanouts

product 4020

  • Unique top assembly allows for interchangeability of scoriated, tile or terrazzo covers
  • One size top assembly for 2-4” outlet ferrules
  • Top frame stays in place when cover is removed
Twis-to-Floor cleanouts tip

Pro Tip

Never under estimate the importance of aesthetics to your client. Our cleanouts allow you to exchange our factory covers with scoriated tile or terrazzo covers.

Concrete pours are not a precise science. Once the surface is dry, you often find your cleanouts need adjusting—a fraction lower here, a fraction higher over there. Our Twis-to-Floor cleanouts allow you to make that adjustment with a simple twist.

TWIS-TO-FLOOR_ 4000 SERIES CLEANOUTS

Formit® Drain Installation Device

1015 FormIt®

  • Permits pre-assembly of the drain to the decking without connected piping below the forms.
  • After concrete has set and the forms have been stripped away, FormIt® allows easy access for final connection of the waste line piping
  • Drain elevation can be easily adjusted and leveled to meet finished floor height
  • Four anchor holes secure FormIt to the deck or sub-floor, providing stability during construction and concrete pour
Twis-to-Floor cleanouts tip

Pro Tip

We designed this labor saving floor drain stabilizer assembly with multi- story building construction in mind. Multiple floors means multiple drains and an increased risk of some of those drains falling over or being knocked out of position prior to and during the pour.

Simply mount this assembly directly onto the “fly-away” form and you eliminate the need to spend time and manpower going from floor to floor resetting misaligned drains.

PROTECTIVE FLOOR DRAIN TOP COVER

Protective Floor Drain Top Cover

Protective Cover

  • Each protective cover is clearly marked with the product number and the Smith logo
  • In addition to the top cover, all strainer heads shipped individually are shrink wrapped in plastic before leaving the factory
  • The cover protects the drain top during the pour, preserving the finish
Protective Floor Drain Top Cover tip

Pro Tip

Are you tired of taping up all your strainer heads before a pour? Or even worse, the time it takes to then remove all that tape? Not only will this protective cover eliminate the need to tape, but it will also protect the finish during shipping, warehousing, and on the job site.

The cover protects the drain top during shipping, warehousing and on the job site.

QUAD CLOSE STINK STOPPER TRAP SEAL DEVICE

Quad Close® "Stink Stopper" Trap Seal Device

Quad Close

  • Easy to Install—Insert the device in the drain outlet until it is flush with the bottom of the drain or top of the outlet piping. For strainers, insert the trap seal as low as possible into the throat of the strainer.
  • A value for the purchaser—Designed to handle a wide range of pipe and internal drain body diameters. Can be retrofitted into existing drains
Quad Close Trap Seal

Pro Tip

Instead of waiting for the inevitable call from a building owner complaining of sewer gas odor, it is better to be proactive and install the “Stink Stopper” in any drain that may be used infrequently.

An often overlooked application for a trap seal device is in institutions that close for the summer or long holidays. During these times, drains that usually don’t pose a problem will dry up and students and staff are greeted upon their return by a noxious odor.
