Dating as far back to ancient Rome, natural stone was used as drain covers.
These Drain covers serve two main purposes. Firstly to rid of excess water and waste into the much bigger sewage tunnel below the city. And secondly to work as an access cover for the maintenance crew.
Fast forward to the modern day, the sewage system is still in use under all cities around the world. Instead of the crude stone manhole covers the Romans used, now we have reinforced stone gratings that serve the thousand-year-old function of covering the inlets of our sewage system.

The Jonite Story
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.
