KIMAX® Laboratory Glass Drain & Vent Systems


KIMAX® Glass Drainline is a low VOC emission piping system 

The design and construction industries are experiencing dramatic changes led by the sustainability, or so called "green" building movement. With the help of programs like the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC), Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), and the Department of Energy’s Labs21, these developments are transforming the marketplace and calling on everyone, from owners and architects to engineers and contractors, to make the ideas and practices of sustainable design the norm.

As has been the case for over 40 years, KIMAX Glass Drainline and KOCH KNIGHTWARE Neutralization Sumps are uniquely suited to offer a comprehensive sustainable solution for acid waste piping and neutralization systems.
