A strainer (commonly known as floor drain cover, floor grating/grate or floor trap) should always be used at all times to cover the floor drain.

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.
