"The SpeedTite Drain is revolutionary in that it goes from box to watertight in seconds."
OMG Roofing Products of Agawam, Mass. has introduced the SpeedTite Roof Drain, a “drop-in-ready” drain that can be installed in seconds, making it the fastest way to install roof drains in new or retrofit applications.
Contractors simply insert the drain stem into the existing drain leader and handtighten the mechanical seal to create a symmetrical watertight seal. Since no special tools are required, the SpeedTite Drain installs in half the time of other insert drains for enhanced contractor productivity. It is also significantly faster than re-working a drain which can take up to two hours of time.
“The SpeedTite Drain is revolutionary in that it goes from box to watertight in seconds,” said Dan Genovese, product manager with OMG Roofing Products. “Installation is tool-free and can be done in a single turn with two fingers, increasing productivity and accuracy.”
SpeedTite is installed from the rooftop so will not disrupt building occupants, and has a one-piece seamless body for strength and durability as well as a heavy duty cast aluminum strainer dome and clamping ring. The 10-inch long drain stem accommodates most existing conditions and can be field if needed or obtained in longer lengths. An extra large flange allows positive attachment of roof flashing membrane, and flanges are also available with TPO or PVC coatings for direct hot-air welding.
