What is a floor drain?

Essentially a floor drain is a plumbing fixture installed in the floor with the objective of removing water around it. A floor drain usually comes in round, square or rectangular designs. The most common size is 4 inches in diameter but it also ranges from 2 inches to 12 inches. Usually made of materials such as metal or plastic, the gradient of the floor near a floor drain is usually sloped to help disperse the water faster.

Typically found near washrooms, water heater and the washer areas in residential areas, floor drains can also be spotted near commercial facilities such as basements, toilets, kitchens, refrigerator areas, shower and locker rooms and near swimming pools for commercial areas.

A strainer (commonly known as floor drain cover, floor grating/grate or floor trap) should always be used at all times to cover the floor drain.

The Jonite Story

Jonite Stone Reinforced Gratings

The majesty of natural stone is perhaps best expressed by the magnificence of the stone castles of England. Inspired by the rustic appeal of natural stone, we wondered if the material could be used to make functional and beautiful grates.

Yet, the sheer cost of using thick slabs of natural stone proved to be commercially unviable. Natural stone, although having aesthetic appeal, was too weak and unreliable to satisfy safety standards and requirements. A new solution had to be found.

In 1994, Jonite pioneered the world’s first reinforced decorative stone grating. Incorporating the beauty of stone with uncompromising load bearing strength, the marriage of aesthetics and performance remained unchallenged in the industry.

Inspired by the rustic appeal of natural stone, Jonite was developed through years of extensive research and development, leading edge technology and driven by a team of dedicated and passionate personnel.
