Why Stainless Steel Is The Best Material For Your Drainage Grate

Whether you have drainage grates in your industrial factory or in the front of your residential property, there are some features you should expect every time you decide to install a new system. The main difference between drainage grates is the material they are constructed from, as they are otherwise built in almost the exact same way to fulfill the same purpose. The material can literally make or break your drainage grates, so it is important you get this decision right. When it comes to durability, aesthetic value and price, there is no better option than stainless steel drainage grates. 


Stainless steel is an alloy that combines the best properties of steel with the corrosion-resistance of chromium to create an almost rustproof material. This means that stainless steel drainage grates can be used in any conditions, both inside and outdoors. It also makes them perfect for all levels of use, so if you need a drainage grate that can withstand a lot of material passing through and under it every day (in a warehouse or sewer system) then stainless steel should be your first choice. Many stainless steel drainage grates come with lifetime warranties because that is how confident the manufacturers are of the quality of the materials involved in the creation of these grates. 

Aesthetic Value

Face it: many drainage grates are not very inspiring to look at, nor do they have to be. The only requirement is that they shouldn't actively look terrible, and when it comes to this metric, stainless steel drainage grates come out ahead again. The shiny surface of stainless steel makes it look pristine for decades and also allows for a quick clean. Stainless steel is also very easy to mold to your preference, meaning you can find stainless steel drainage grates in all shapes and sizes. If you want a unique drainage solution that fits your home or businesses' overall look, then stainless steel is again the best material due to its malleability. 


Stainless steel is one of the best value-for-money materials on the market. Considering all of the features that you find in stainless steel that are missing amongst its competitors (including the two outlined above) it can be shocking that stainless steel drainage grates cost roughly the same, if not less, than similar options. Remember when deciding on the price to factor in the longevity of stainless steel and think about whether you want to be replacing a cheaper option in just a few years. Also, find out how much the installation cost will be, as sometimes that is not immediately clear on a website or advertisement. Contact a company like HYDRO CONSTRUCTION PRODUCTS to get started.
