Jonite believes that to become a great brand, we need to go beyond quality products and modern design. In our journey to attain "greatness" in our branding, we often question ourselves - "What Inspires Us?". In our quest to address this question that defines our brand, we reflected and studied the history of our products and their roles in history. For our sump covers, the history can be traced all the way back to Roman times.

The fall of the Roman Empire has fascinated historians for decades (if not centuries). This decline is widely accepted to be a long process where the Roman Empire’s power weakened over a period of time. The empire lost the strengths that allowed it to exercise effective control over the vast empire caused by many factors such as the strength of her army, the general well being of the Roman’s population, massive religious changes during this period and the loss of efficiency of the Roman civil administration and the attacks by the “barbarians”.

Height of Roman Power

The Roman Empire had the greatest geographical territory under Emperor Trajan (98-117) who ruled a prosperous Roman Empire that extended from Mesopotamia to the coasts of the Atlantic with it’s massive army of trained, disciplined and well supplied soldiers. Emperor Trajan had extensive control over the civil administration and public finances and wielded extensively power.

Many might not realize this fact - without Rome's sanitation and water system, Rome could never have been built. Back then, "man hole covers" began as slabs of stones or pieces of woods enabling access to covered drains that carried sewage. Sewer covers were in use extensively as early as Roman times. Today, we can still find Roman drain cover stone slabs in museums which were used by the Romans to cover drains.

Today, Jonite still continue this long Roman tradition of using the stone material in our sump covers. Integrating modern technologies and excellent craftsmanship into our products, Jonite sump covers are designed to be used on point drainage systems, intermediaries of long open-channel drainage as well as kerb-side drainage. 

With load applications similar to channel grates, Jonite sump covers offer style, security and functionality. Our sump covers come in a wide range of standard sizes that can be assembled with the addition of Jonite splines to form huge covers, giving you cost effectiveness and sustainability. For bigger and multiple sump covers, a metal sub-frame may be used. However, the sub-frame must be designed to sustain the required loading on the entire sump cover. Optional Jonite trimmer frames can be used to provide aesthetical flair and high performance support for heavy duty channel and sump covers.

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.

As one of our core values, Jonite is committed to the environment by producing green and sustainable gratings. Our primary aim is to ensure longevity and quality of our products through energy-saving and resource-conserving production. We believe that it is everyone's responsibility to protect the environment and keep it for our future generations.

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.

With our eye for detail, exquisite craftsmanship and the infinite possiblities we offer in texture and colour, our engaging designs in gratings complement the vision of international architects and designers.
