Jonite Stone (reinforced) Channel Grates have redefined the role of gratings in the architectural industry. With Jonite, gratings have moved beyond merely being functional into the realm of design elements. 

Durability
The unique material properties of Jonite products which prevents rust and corrosion
mean they are equally suited to last a lifetime for both indoor and outdoor applications.


High Load Performance
Jonite Stone (reinforced) Channel Grates are engineered to sustain load performances from
pedestrian to vehicular according to the standards as specified, and are compliant with
International Standards such as BS EN 124:1994 & BS EN 1433:2008.

High Mechanical Properties
Jonite absorbs much less heat from the Sun than traditional ferrous gratings, making
it a more comfortable material to have around the house and in children’s playgrounds.
In addition, it has tremendous slip resistance tested by international classifications. This
provides a much-needed safety feature.

Heel-Guard Grates
Specially designed with elegant ladies in mind, Jonite’s Heel-Guard Grates have slim 6mm slots and small radius fillets to prevent high heels from being caught in the grates. Compliant with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements, these are extremely useful for cut-off or scupper drains of the entrance or concourse areas of a building.

Lockable Grates
Jonite gratings are relatively safe from vandals even without a locking system. Metal gratings are most commonly stolen to be sold for scrap; Jonite has no scrap value and is thus safe from theft. However, it is a mandatory requirement in many countries for public gratings to have locking systems installed.

Our Lockable Grates are customisable to any size.

L-Trimmers
L-Trimmers are always recommended for gratings built for heavy-duty applications and above. They are designed to provide aesthetic flair as well as ideal support for all Jonite gratings.

Custom Curve Grates Of Various Radii
Jonite Curve Grates are available in any radius at an affordable cost. We also maintain a list of Custom Curve Grates for architects to keep costs low. This list is available upon request.
