Introducing our linear drainage channel with mesh grating

As you would expect with Clark-Drain products, we design and manufacture this mesh grating right here in the UK. An ideal solution for domestic settings or withing landscaped areas such as patios, paths, and gardens, this durable product is made from recycled polypropylene that is recyclable at end of life, supporting your environmental targets.

What factors should you consider before choosing your grating?

Gratings can come in a variety of designs. We most commonly incorporate slotted and mesh options. Gratings enables water to run into your drainage system while also protecting it. The first consideration is the strength of the grating. In industrial areas where heavy vehicles are in use, you will need a metal grating with a higher load capacity, which will give it the strength needed to withstand the vehicular loads it will be under. However, in pedestrianised areas or places with only light vehicle use, a polypropylene solution is more suitable.

The second consideration is the style of grating, and this can depend on a few factors. Most important is the water flow that it will have to deal with. For example, in a high-water flow area, a slotted grating might be more appropriate as its larger openings will allow water to drain away more efficiently.
