Trench drain/Channel drain

In our 10 years of installing we have actually never installed one of these before...

We are doing a permeable driveway that has about an 8% grade going from the street down to the garage. While this grade is still within what is allowable acording to icpi I want to install a channel drain so I will sleep better at night.

I really dont want to have it encased in concrete...my plan is to install it on compacted #57 stone. Having one side directly against the concrete pad of garage and the other will have the pavers against it.

What have others done that want to "dry set" these?

Are you leaving a lip into the garage? Just in case it clogs or overruns the drain. Ideally have a foot of pavers pitching away from the garage to the drain.

What brand are you using?

yes we plan to leave a 1/2 lip. and could set it off a foot or maybe a soldier length.

For a driveway i like the idea of the concrete ones better, i think theyre polycast? Or duraslope. DVS is also a fan and in the end, thats all that matters
