Stainless Steel

MAX Mini™ & Bronze Age™ Grating

In the past, residential drainage has been limited to less appealing options. The MAX Mini™ by TDS is available with an ever-growing selection of bronze, cast iron and stainless steel grating options that help accent your hardscape, while serving the practical drainage function needed for your luxury outdoor living space.

The Bronze Age™ collection features unique and exclusive patterned bronze grating, available in both natural or brushed finishes, which lay well in sand or gray colored channels with bronze veneer edges. For a simple, clean look, consider the MAX Mini™ stainless steel grating options placed into a stainless edged channel.

Cast iron grating options are finished in the popular BoOF (baked-on oil finish) and set in an oil rubbed bronze edged channel. These grate patterns are de­signed by Trench Drain Systems, Iron Age Designs, and NDS®.

Customizable Linear Drainage

See for yourself and design the system perfect for your space. If you don’t see a combination you like, the systems are interchangeable to create a custom look. Have a complex drainage system design?  TDS has experienced estimators and an onsite engineering staff to help provide guidance in the design process and free quotes.

Each Max Mini™ comes pre-assembled in a custom length kit to suit project requirements. Each kit includes decorative grating choices in brushed or natural cast bronze, stainless steel or BoOfed cast iron, associated channels, coupler(s), bottom or end outlets and endcap(s).

All components of the MAX Mini­™ drainage system are compatible to provide customized options.

Standard Lengths

Standard lengths of 3’, 6’, 12’, 18’ or 24’ are available for purchase at, our online store. Kits over 6′ in length require minimal assembly, due to shipping limitations.

For those looking into grating options for salt-water resistant applications, aluminum alloy grating is also available, but not recommended with edged channels. Channels are available without edging in gray or sand within the NDS® Mini Channel linear drainage system.

In many instances, you can complement your drainage system with a matching point drain. Grates are available in 4” diameter bronze, aluminum, or cast iron that easily fit into your your 3” or 4” area drain stub out pipe.
