Jonite USA Decorative Grates come in a variety of modern, ornate or nature-inspired designs which are mostly ADA compliant.
In the business of manufacturing drain covers (grates), we realised many people do not appreciate the role of the sewerage system plays in our urbanization. Without the modern day sewerage system, we will not see mega cities like New York, London and Tokyo today.
The modern sewerage system removes and treats mind blowing amount of sewage every day across the world. What happens from the moment you flush the toilet or pour drain water down the sink?
Sewage from our homes and businesses enters the sewerage system through a series of underground pipes. Sewage generated by businesses are considered trade waste which is usually more contaminated than household waste and requires special treatment.
Sewage waste eventually reaches bigger pipes which transport the waste to treatment plants. The sewage pipes and drains are usually slopping downward – harvesting nature’s gravity to send sewage to treatment plants where pumps are used to bring the waste to ground level for treatment.
At the treatment plants, sewage is processed before being resupplied as recycled water or being discharged to rivers and seas. This network of drains and pipes are constantly working to supply our modern settlements with clean water and to properly process sewage waste – a traditional that Man has been practicing for thousands of years without which modern civilization can never be realized.
As soon as clean water is used, it becomes wastewater, waste water needs to be processed and treated again – this non stop process gives life to our cities and the sewage system plays an important role in our ability to build great cities housing millions of city dwellers.
Jonite is proud to be part of this process that facilitates the development of great cities and beautiful landscapes. Our Jonite USA decorative grates come in a variety of modern, ornate or nature-inspired designs which are mostly ADA compliant

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.
With our eye for detail, exquisite craftsmanship and the infinite possiblities we offer in texture and colour, our engaging designs in gratings complement the vision of international architects and designers.
