Tips for Laying

Laying and maintenance of
Drain Covers and Drain Gutters

  • Caggiati drain covers and drain gutters are designed to adapt to the different types of currently used coatings: tiles, wear-proof cement, resins, PVC.
  • They meet the strictest requirements of hygiene, resistance to corrosion and warping; they endure thermal shock and heavy duty loads.
  • Accurate design and construction ensures easy cleaning through rounded off edges.
  • Being easy and practical to lay, they are preferred by building contractors and maintenance technicians. High durability protects the floors and ensures waterproofing.

Safety Device

  • Different models of interchangeable washers allow for future changes to the spaces such as extensions/alterations to the systems or equipment, thus facilitating the buildings refurbishment and providing more flexibility of use.
  • Traps and drain gutters need to be in sufficient amount to collect storm water. Their location must be accurately chosen depending on the spaces and systems lay-out.
  • To minimize the length of the water path and the stagnation of dirt – which is generally the first cause of contamination – the ideal layout should ensure easy and quick drainage of the washing liquid and a more economic use.

Laying of Traps
in Industrial Environment

  1. Apply adhesive tape to protect the cover. It will be removed upon completion of the work;
  2. Open the fixing bolts;
  3. Fill the cover edges with cement or resin to increase rigidity and avoid air bubbles;
  4. In case you use a pipe union, this will be fitted instead of the cover base, before casting and the impermeable sheathing is placed.

Safety Device
The use of the safety screw is recommended in order to lock the cover and prevent theft or incorrect maintenance.This device has proven an effective, practical deterrent.

Recommendations for the cleaning of Stainless Steel

The stainless steel (AISI 304) used in the construction of Caggiati drain trap covers, drain gutters requires regular cleaning. Stainless steel (AISI 304) is commonly used in the construction of food processing equipment (Pasteurizers, Milk Tanks, Cooking equipment etc.). It is easy to clean and it goes back to its original appearance after usual cleaning doing in every professional floor. In case of use of products containing Chlorine or Bleach, proceed as follows:

  1. Before cleaning, wash and rinse thoroughly all surfaces to remove any organic or mineral matter etc;
  2. Prepare a solution of 12° Vol. Bleach (0.5 liters Bleach mixed with 10 liters water);
  3. Apply and allow to rest for 10 minutes, then rinse thoroughly with water to eliminate any trace of chlorine from the stainless steel surfaces. (steel should always be cleaned with Chlorine or Bleach in cold conditions).

Laying the Drain Gutters

Step 1

Apply adhesive tape for protection on the upper edges of the drain gutter. Turn upside down the drain gutter modules on a flat surface. Place the elements in the correct assembly order, clean the flanges and apply silicon

Step 2

Accurately rivet the flanges.
Check all parts for correct alignment.
Open the anchor bolts.

Step 3

Fix the adjustable feet in the proper position.

Step 4

Fill the wings with resin or grout.
Lay the drain gutter in the position where they will be grouted.
Remove excess putty from inside the drain gutter, then connect the drain to the sewerage.

Step 5

After an accurate adjustment of levels, fix the draing to their seat using lime. Possible misalignment over considerable lengths can be easily reduced during laying by using appropriate clamps.

Step 6

During the filling of the laying space, insert a few shims in order to form a groove used to apply the floor connecting putty.

Step 7

Remove the shims for form the groove.

Step 8

Fill with connecting putty according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.

Laying of Covers
with Plastic Coatings

Step 1

Proceed to the laying together with the plastic floor contractor.

Step 2

Unscrew the ring and set aside.
Tighten the 6 bolts and allow them to protrude from the finished floor level.
Glue the coating material up to 12 cm from the cover edge.
Unroll the coating material and place over the cover
Locate the screw position and mark them at the centre.
Remove the 6 screws.

Step 3

Insert a board between the cover and the coating.
Cut the 6 holes that had been marked, using a 12 mm diameter punch.
Remove the board.
Apply glue all around the cover.
NOTE: Before stating these operations make a cross cut in the coating.

Step 4

Warm up the part of coating material that rests on the cover to make it softer.
Slightly press the coating with the ring to help it take up the correct form.
Place 2 or 3 screws but do not tighten them down.

Step 5

Remove the ring. Apply a string of putty to the inclined edge of the cover.

Step 6

Place the ring back in its position.
Progressively tighten the 6 screws.
NOTE: Protect the threading from dust and dirt deposits.
