In Québec, Poly-Expert Distribution is the exclusive distributor of ABT DRAINS surface drainage products for civil engineering and structural projects. ABT Drains products are used to solve surface drainage problems. They are made from polymer concrete, are resistant to salt, oil, most acids and alkalis, and offer UV resistance.
PolyDrain polymer concrete trench drain components have superior chemical resistance, greater strength, lower water absorption, and better freeze/thaw resistance than does Portland cement concrete. They are thus an excellent choice for capturing, containing, and evacuating surface runoff from roadways.
ABT manufactures precast trench drain systems and forming systems for construction of cast-in-place concrete trench drains, catch basins, and utility chases. Poly-Expert Distribution offers accompaniment and technical support at your construction sites during the installation of our drainage products.

Trench Drain - Polydrain
ABT POLYDRAIN is a modular, precast polymer concrete trench drain system that provides chemical resistance, increases hydraulic performance, facilitates construction accuracy, and requires less installation costs, labor and skills compared to conventional cast-in-place trench drain construction methods.
ABT INTERCEPTOR is a PolyDrain trench drain system with integrated or neutral slope developed specifically for roadway applications. The ABT Interceptor trench drain system provides design flexibility to place the exact amount of continuous inlet line drain area where it is required for efficient and safe highway surface drainage. Interceptor is designed for heavy duty applications such as airports, harbours, bridges and roads.
ABT TRENCH FORMER is a pre-engineered, cast-in-place concrete forming system for forming trench drains, catch basins, oil/water separators, utility trenches, and voids in concrete placements, sewers and sump. Consisting of disposable form profiles, steel inlay rails and drain grates, the ABT Trench Former cast-in-place trench drain system eliminates hand-forming, heavy materials, keyways, and waterstops normally required for cast-in-place trench drain construction.
ABT POLYDRAIN PDX is the first and only versatile chemical resistant modular polymeric surface drainage channel system. The PDX system allow the designer or customer to select a modular trench drain by trench width, depth, and slope as hydraulically required, and not from a limited product selection. Made of UL\ULC certified polymer concrete, this larger product makes it possible to design projects with greater volumes, according to site needs.
ABT VECTORDRAIN is a low profile system that has superior flow compared to other competitors in its class. The larger pipe volume under the slot drain keep debris that passes through its opening moving to the outlet of the system. Typical applications are around swimming pools, shower stalls, sidewalks or running tracks.
ABT POLYSELF is a complete modular trench drain system requiring minimum experience and labor for residential installation.
ABT POLYDRAIN SHALLOW is a shallow trench drain. Its steel anchorings are welded directly to the bridge or overpass reinforcements. It is to be used in neutral slopes, with low volumes and for sites with slopes over 0.5 %.
ABT POLYDUCT is mainly used as a chase for electrical or electronic cables.
