Stone Grates Are More Eco-friendly Than Steel Grates
Drainages are the main implementations of stone grates. These drainages may be in gardens, pools, driveways, garages, and even in areas where vehicular and pedestrian traffic is high!
In the past, the only material of choice for grates was steel because of its toughness and hardiness. But the drawback is it is not eco-friendly. Carbon is needed to make the steel hard, but carbon emissions damage the ozone layer. Steel grates also corrode and rust over time. Finally, steel grates tend to violate nature’s aesthetics.

It can take on other natural colors of stone to meet the different landscaping needs anywhere. Its water absorption is 0.5% so its color will not fade when exposed to water. Also, its strength and durability has been reinforced to match that of steel grates and meets the BS EN 124.1994 international standards.

These processes are chemical in nature and their residues in excessive amounts harm the environment, not to mention the carbon emissions!
