Get the Grate
There is a world beneath our feet, a maze of sewers and drainage systems. This world is out of sight, out of mind. It’s easy to forget it even exists sometimes… unless you’re a plumber or a ninja turtle. And though these systems may not be at the forefront of our minds, having adequate drainage is crucial to the success of any industrial facility. Facilities are always subject to inspection and drain issues are often the main cause for a poor grade, which can halt production or even mean acquiring a fine. Something as small as having the right grate for a drain can help avoid drainage issues and/or failures during an inspection.
The material and size of the drain cover are important aspects to consider, as well as the spacing between the grates. Some materials used to make grates include aluminum, cast iron, and bronze. There are also stainless steel and plastic grates. Plastic grates are a great option because they are resistant to corrosion and are usually less expensive than other materials. Drain size and how it is fitted into the drain is very important as it can be a safety hazard, or simply an annoyance as rattling may occur. The spacing of the slots in the grate also needs to be considered in order to ensure the optimum filtration of debris.
As they are often overlooked, it might be time to replace your drain covers. Save yourself a nightmare of drainage problems and find the appropriate grates today. There are plenty of products available and suppliers that can help you find exactly what you need.
