Stone Drain Covers Instead of Plastic Drain Covers

Plastic is cheap and easy to produce in mass quantity. We acknowledge the flexibility plastic provides (colors and sizes and shapes) and plastic is used widely in many products in our lives.

However, if you subject plastic to the elements outdoor, plastic corrodes and is not bio-degradable. And most certainly, plastic is not environmental friendly.

 

Jonite’s commitment to the environment is driven from within its core values of the company’s vision and mission. Our primary aim is to ensure longevity and quality of our products through energy-saving and resource-conserving production.

Through the LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) green building certification program, the U.S. Green Building Council is transforming the built environment. As a member of the USGBC and with the usage of recycled content, Jonite products contribute toward satisfying MR Credit 4: Recycled Content under LEED®. The LEED® Green Building Rating System is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high-performance green building in the U.S.A.

As such, if you are considering using plastic drain covers (also known as drain grates/gratings), we hope you will consider the future of our children and consider switching over to Jonite's reinforced stone drain covers instead of plastic drain covers.

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.

With over 20 years of being a manufacturer of architectural and decorative stone grates, Jonite is your partner in hardscape design. At Jonite, we recognize the transformational potential of space. With our eye for detail, exquisite craftsmanship and the infinite possibilities we offer in texture and color, our engaging designs complement the vision of international architects and designers.

Today we are proud to offer you the durability, sustainability and sheer beauty of natural stone with Jonite. Jonite aims to protect the environment by incorporating at least 30% recycled content in our products. The use of Jonite in place of steel and cast iron will contribute to the lowering of carbon emissions from the steel and iron work industries worldwide.

Jonite is your partner in green and sustainable design. Green Label certified Jonite meets the Singapore Environment Council's requirements for 30% or more recycled content. In the drive towards sustainable construction, the Building and Construction Authority of Singapore Green Mark scheme recognizes the use of Green Label certified products and awards merit points for their usage.
