Drain grates are a vital part of any drainage system, as they help rapidly carry water away while straining out large pieces of debris to prevent them from entering the system. If you currently have broken grates, a prompt replacement is critical. Here are some things to consider when it comes to drain grates.
How Can Drain Grates Become Damaged?
There are many different reasons to replace drain grates. The most common causes are aging parts, poor maintenance, poor installation, and a material breakdown. When you are considering replacing your grates, it’s essential to consider why they need to be replaced in the first place. If you did not maintain them properly, you need to have a plan in place for how you will do a better job with the new grates, or you risk the same thing happening again.
How Can You Choose the Right Drain Grates?
Next, it’s crucial to consider how your grates will be used. Suppose you are going to have heavy trucks rolling over the grates regularly. In that case, the design and materials used will need to be different than if installed on a residential property where there is not much weight rolling over it daily. If you install the wrong drain grate, the system could break down immediately and require extensive repairs. The Landscape Design Center can help you determine the best grate for your situation.
Consider These Factors When Replacing Your Drain Grates
When replacing the drain grates on your property, there are several considerations that you need to make to make sure you choose the right one. Some of the things that you need to measure include the following:
- Width of the grate top
- Width of the underside of the grate
- Height of the grate
- Length of the grate
- Width of the top of the channel
- Height of the ledge
- Width of the inside of the channel
