Bar Maid
Bar Maid’s FLY-BYE Floor Drain Trap Seal is a patented one-way valve that allows water and solids to flow down the drain, while preventing odours, sewer gases and insects, such as fruit flies and cockroaches, from entering up through the floor-drain grate. The reversing airflow of unprotected floor drains can also pose a health hazard, allowing the aerosolization of pathogens and migration of not only foul odours, but also harmful and potentially flammable gases out of the drain. The FLY-BYE Floor Drain Trap Seal acts as a vapour barrier to help prevent gases, such as methane, hydrogen sulfide and radon, from infiltrating the living or workspace, improving indoor air quality.
