When it comes to trench grate options, materials such as iron and plastic have their limitations in landscaping designs. These materials can get the job done but can present issues to make them less than ideal in a variety of situations.
However, stone grates open up a whole new avenue of options. Being non-slip, heat-resistant, corrosion-resistant and durable, reinforced stone grates offer versatile application in various situations. Reinforced Stone Grates provide an excellent material to use for decorative trench drain grates, tree grates, pool grates and sump covers. The material itself is a great choice, but the options available when using it make it even better. This can help landscapers find new choices or discover more solutions for their next project.
Decorative stone grilles
Reinforced stone works great for decorative trench drain options. Given the range of designs available, it’s easy to create the perfect look.
With Jonite, consumers can choose a custom color to match the environment. They can also choose from a variety of grille designs, many of which help to highlight the desired aesthetic of the area.
Practical stone grids
Many Jonite stone gratings are handicap-friendly and heel-proof, making them a practical choice for pedestrian traffic areas. If vehicles must pass over the grid, it is important to choose a load class that will support the expected vehicle weights. This can easily be achieved with existing Jonite grids or by adapting them to a specified load class. Trench grates can also be customized to specific shapes and sizes to accommodate curves and other non-standard shapes in the design.
Stone tree grates
As with trench grates, designers should consider the needs of pedestrians for tree grates. They are available in a variety of handicap-friendly and heel-proof designs. Jonite also offers many colors, as well as the ability to customize them to match the landscaping aesthetic. Put the board logo on it or design the outline to match the other grids in the area for a seamless look.
Tree grates are unique in that they contain a living plant that must be kept alive; the heat resistant nature of the reinforced stone contributes to this. Some of the Jonite tree grates have an expandable inside diameter to support tree growth. Other options for tree grates also focus on the tree itself. Lighted ports and custom logos can be added to take advantage of the tree’s prominent position in a landscape. Meanwhile, lockable options can prevent the theft of the grid itself.
Stone pool grates
Another popular type of stone grate is a pool grate. A swimming pool is a place where safety and comfort are two essential elements of landscaping. Reinforced heat resistant stone already helps with this, as less heat makes a grate more comfortable to walk through, but there are additional options available which further contribute to the safety aspect.
Choosing a non-slip option helps maintain traction in this area. Meanwhile, smaller slot designs, like the cutting-edge rain slots available in Jonite drains, will help prevent toes from getting caught in the slots. These help ensure that the environment around the pool is relaxing and stress free. The options for these stone grills are not just limited to practicality, as there are also many visual benefits. Reinforced stone works very well for swimming pools because it has a low water absorption rate compared to natural stone. Because of this, the color of the grid will not fade over time.
Stone sump covers
Sump covers, sometimes also called maintenance hole covers, require so many practical options. Some covers are much larger than others and may require accommodations to make them cost effective and durable. The metal subframes can also be used for multiple sump covers, making them very sturdy. Additionally, since access can be an issue when it comes to sump covers, hinge and locking options are available to help make this type of grate useful in a variety of different situations. Unique slot designs can transform a typically drab catch basin cover into an artistic feature of the landscape. Both gratings are also available in different colors and designs, which can be perfectly matched with other gratings in a larger drainage system.
