You can effectively stop water from running into your garage and prevent it from pooling on driveway areas with a grate drain. 

Depending on the project, there are options for the manufacture of a grate drain, and we’ll discuss these points below.

We manufacture driveway grate drains for both residential and commercial applications. Each application will require a different product, depending on the usage.

The drain product we manufacture for driveways, or areas that receive vehicle traffic, is called a wedge wire drain.

Our wedge wire strip drain is fabricated using a TIG welding process, then passivated (coated to protect) upon completion, resulting in a stainless finish, with high quality welded joins and fittings that are built to last and retain the sleek polished finish.

It is a popular choice for commercial driveways and also a stylish and effective drainage option for residential properties with driveways.

The contemporary look and feel of a 316L Grade Stainless steel drain is classic and timeless, and adds a stylish finish to any area that is exposed to water or the weather, whilst remaining durable and long lasting.

Our drains contain no plastic fittings, ensuring your product will last the test of time and traffic, both indoors and outdoors.
