About This Project

Lateral Design Studio is a family run company which transforms functional construction products into art by combining unique designs with cutting edge technology. Formed in 2011 this London-based design studio have created an award-winning drainage system that is ideal for our range of products.

Aqualevel is a NEW integrated level access channel drain that works with our range of glazed door systems including our sliding, bi fold, and lift & slide doors.

The Aqualevel drainage system means that for the first time you can have a seamless level access connection between indoor and outdoor living areas. The patented system meets both architectural and aesthetical requirements without compromising on functionality. It’s the first glazed door drain system that connects to the actual door, channelling water away from your home. It comes complete with various designed covers so it looks great whilst serving a very practical purpose.

The modern, stylish stainless steel covers are highly robust and come in ten designer options. They are a design led alternative to commonly used slot and unsightly plastic or galvanised steel ‘ladder style’ designs. The covers are made from 304 grade stainless steel and are available in a standard brushed finish, as well as bespoke designs and metal finishes. Additional finishes such as Jonite stone, cast iron, copper, bronzed, baked oil finish and colour powder coated are all available, allowing you to create a real distinctive feature whilst creating a seamless transition from inside to out.

Aqaulevel means you’re no longer forced to use plastic or galvanised steel covers or ineffective French and slot drains that can be easily blocked by natural debris. These traditional methods detract from your design intent and don’t offer the same protection from water ingress.

Lateral Design Studio also offer a bespoke design service enabling you to tweak with an existing design or create a completely bespoke one. You can also have LED light bars fitted within the drain channel to highlight your chosen design to best effect.

You can view various examples of the designer finishes and features available with the Aqualevel product in our Leeds and Harrogate showrooms. This product needs to be incorporated into your project at an early stage so for more information on this innovative drainage solution visit or contact them on 020 8450 2244.
