Choosing The Right Gratings

We see grates everywhere, whether on the streets, in the garage, in the driveway, or even inside homes and buildings. They are just integral in keeping a property’s drainage system fully functional. They serve as filters over air vents, drains, and sewages, blocking foreign particles from entering inside while allowing movement of air or water.

In choosing the right gratings for your property, you should first consider their function and where the grates are expected to perform. They may be used to intercept water to avoid flooding or to sift (filter) objects in the driveway, where heavy vehicles pass by every day, or around a pool or tree, or even inside the house.

The reason for this is there are gratings that are specifically produced to be able to carry heavy loads, some are made to withstand pedestrian weight only, while there are grates that are designed for use in places where people, including small children, walk barefoot.

Qualities Gratings Should Have

There was a time when grates, while very functional, were considered an eyesore because they only come in standard steel horizontal tubes. They are more suited in industrial places rather than in homes and in commercial establishments. Fortunately, there are grates nowadays that come in many designs and styles.

But not all grates produced have the same durable quality of those manufactured for industry use. Natural stone is a popular material choice today, but they can be brittle and overall unsuited to be used as grates. One is stuck with the choice of either form or function.

Jonite reconstituted stones are different. Home and building owners don’t need to choose between long-lasting but standard steel or insubstantial but aesthetically pleasing gratings. They get to have the best of both worlds.

And by substituting steel with reconstituted stones, there is less carbon emission from the production of these grates. Jonite incorporates at least 30 percent recycled content in the products, which also help to drastically reduce carbon emissions.
