In 2002, when our factory started the production of Marble drain Grates, we manufactured the Flat drain Grate with wide slots of 12mm, today’s Model C0.

50

One year later, we manufactured the Curved drain Grate, for more effective water drainage, Model C1. Shortly, we started to manufacture Grates with slim slots of 6mm, Models D0 and D1 in order to comply with UK safety regulations. Following 8 years of Research & Development, in 2011 & 2012 we resulted in enriching our range of Marble drain Grates with all the Models presented in this Catalogue.

Drain Grates The construction of a patent machine measuring the water drainage capacity, resulted in manufacturing Grates with fewer slots, and, in 2011 we manufactured our ‘best seller’ product, Grate Model B, having slim and few slots, and Grate Model R, which successfully drains overflowing water.

Reinforcement of Marble Grates with Stainless Steel (Inox) or Porcelain, led us in developing our Modular drain Grate which can be fitted to any free shape Pool Overflow channel.

Recently, we enhanced the strength our Grates, by double plating them underneath with different materials, like, Stainless Steel, Porcelain or reconstituted Marble.

Our range of products has been completed with Grates Models E & U, the non slotted water drain products of really minimal concept.
