Wade International - Drainage Product Range

Linear Drainage - Access Covers - Floor Gullies - Roof Outlets - Actimatic - SuperSeal

A UK company with more than 50 years experience in the industry, Wade is established as a leading manufacturer of quality drainage products.

Much of the success of the business is attributable to an on-going commitment to put technology to practical use, to generate fresh ideas and to guarantee quality assured production.

Wade offers a comprehensive range in which choices of material, size and style enable the specifier to select products that will meet his / her requirements.

Product Range

Linear Drainage (BS EN 1433 compliant) – Comprises stainless steel channel, available in a range of profiles to fit a range of gratings of stainless steel, nickel bronze or cast iron. Versions are suitable for specialised applications such as fire-fighting lifts, thresholds, hidden channel and where dual-level drainage is required. Includes stainless steel mitred grating patent no. GB2496199. Please see technical page for details of our new Threshold channels.

Access Covers – Sometimes referred to as ‘cleanouts’ or ‘rodding eyes’, complement wall and floor finishes. Versions are available for use in unfinished floors and in floors finished with ceramics, vinyl, marble, paviors, terrazzo, carpet or wood. Most covers are sealed; SuperSeal covers have additional benefits of being quick release and double sealed.

Wade also produces a sliding access cover (patent pending) for use in a vinyl covered floor, designed to enable one person safely, to open the cover without the need for any lifting of equipment. Available in a range of sizes, including man-entry versions up to 900 x 600mm.

Floor Gullies – Versions are available for use in finished or unfinished floors, with trapped or non-trapped body of cast iron or ABS and with grating or cover of nickel bronze, polished bronze, cast iron or stainless steel; bodies are easily connected to all pipework in general use.

Roof Outlets – Wade offers a range of roof outlets with versions for use with different types of roof construction (warm, cold, inverted, no fines screed) for installation in different types of deck (concrete, metal, wood) with different types of waterproofing membrane (mastic asphalt, built-up felt roofing, single ply).

Drainage & Flexible Sheet Floor Covering – Wade has developed a range of channels, gullies, gratings and covers specifically for use with flexible sheet floor covering, such as vinyl and with certain trowel-applied resins. Unobtrusive clamping ensures a watertight seal, yet gratings / covers are removable for access to pipework without disturbing the flooring material.

Actimatic Grease Converters (stainless steel grade 304) – Permanently convert the grease in waste water from kitchen and food processing operations into water soluble, biodegradable products. A mains powered Automatic Dosing Unit is available to provide regular dosing with Wade Actimatic liquid.

Non-Freeze Water Points – Provide a non-freezing external water source for plant watering, area cleaning, vehicle wash down and similar activities.


Certification of compliance with BS EN ISO 9001 underlines the Wade commitment to quality and service.
