About Company


IT ALL STARTED WITH A QUESTION:

How can we make better drains for landscapes and urban design?

Slot Drain Systems was started by Glen Kehler in the 1980s. After being acquired by Global Drain Technologies, focus pivoted to becoming experts in stainless steel manufacturing, and as demand for better drainage systems grew, Global Drain Technologies expanded, as did the idea of providing specific solutions for the problems that surround drainage in both hardscape and softscape settings.


We were told drainage issues were insurmountable — we’re glad we didn’t listen

Landscape Drains was been working with architects and engineers since 2014 and is now a company fully committed to providing sleek, simple, and durable drainage systems for any surface. As a Global Drain Technologies company, we have stayed true to our cause, always delivering on our promise and providing high-quality products, expert advice, and exceptional value to our clients.
