Depending on the floor material, the traps are equipped with fittings that are suitable for plastic flooring, ceramic tiles or composition flooring. We also manufacture traps for more unconventional floor covering materials, such as rigid Altro Safety flooring and thick tiles (marble, terrazzo concrete, dry pressed tile).
The material strength of the squared mesh is 2 mm, but it is also available in more durable grades strong enough for a forklift.
A side connection can be welded into the trap, either onto the side of the trap or through the strainer basket. The sand separator trap can be connected to a Kavika floor basin.
The strainer basket of a vertical trap is narrower than that of a horizontal trap.
The standard delivery comprises a trap complete with water insulation consistent with the flooring material, a detachable stainless steel strainer basket and a stainless steel mesh.
When placing an order for a trap, the customer should check the flooring material used in the intended location so that the trap can be factory-fitted with the correct type of water insulation.
Remember to also ask about the size of the potential additional connection and its orientation in respect of the discharge pipe.
The most important maintenance measure for the traps is to keep them clean.
The stench trap plate is fitted with a detachable rubber plug for removing blockages in the drain.
When you are done, mount the rubber plug and the mesh cover into place.
This applies to all floor drain traps, dirt and sand separators, threshold traps and floor basins manufactured by Kavika. In addition to cleaning, the user must see to it that the traps are always provided with a sufficient amount of water. This is to ensure that the water seals operate flawlessly. Water also prevents dirt from sticking to the traps.
