TRENCH FRAMES & INLET SOLUTIONS

Neenah Foundry has been producing cast iron trench systems since the early 1900s.  We are the innovation leader in the industry. Our cast iron trench systems offer appealing aesthetics, exceptional longevity, and low maintenance.

THE NEI DIFFERENCE

Easy to Use, Safe to Handle

  • Debris chutes prevent potential delamination during maintenance by allowing material that falls into the bolt hole of the frame to pass through into the trench below, harmlessly.
  • Our Liftmate model provides a safer, more ergonomic opening, along with reduced maintenance.
  • Rebar lugs increase the safety and durability of the installation through deeper concrete integration.

Built with lasting form and function in mind, you can be confident our trenches will stand strong in any climate, for every installation. Specifiers can rely on repeatable hydraulic performance.

Our trench products are made in the United States and are approved for federally funded projects.

Customize to Meet Specific Needs
  • Multiple frame and grate options for design flexibility.
  • Our engineering team will ensure sizing and placement are correct for long runs, angles, and intersections.
Advantages of the Neenah Cast Solution
  • We offer flat bottom pan trenches, along with frames and grates that can be formed on-site for any slope required.
  • Alternative pre-sloped polymer options do not adhere to concrete, while iron and can act as a form release. These polymer systems can also float during installation, causing costly problems for contractors.
  • Bolted trench, unlike cast solutions, requires cross-bars to be installed to secure some versions of the pre-sloped trench. This creates more labor involved in the installation and a higher cost to the end-user.
  • Quick connect locking solutions can create foreign object debris, a significant concern for airport operations due to potential safety hazards.
