Tips Regarding Swimming Pool Grating
Typically, there are two areas around a pool requiring pool drainage grates. One area requires grates to cater for water overflow from the pool, while the other would drain wet areas where there are high levels of foot traffic. Consider the following in your decision-making process:
- Strength: Remember that the main consideration for a pool grate is safety. Some materials are more suitable than others, and you should take the weight the grid needs to carry into account. Will adults walk across the grid, and if so, what is the certified strength and slip resistance? Bear in mind that many plastic products (PVC, ABD and Polypropylene), even PVC, when manufactured from virgin materials with added UV stability, only have a life span of 10 to 15 years. Constant UV-ray exposure can shorten this period and cause the product to become brittle and unsafe. Our products are manufactured using marine grade stainless steel, which ensures longevity and sturdiness.
- Gap openings: This may seem insignificant, yet it is so important. The openings in a grate should be small enough to prevent toddler's fingers or toes being caught in them. If not, it increases the chances of them getting stuck.
- Maintenance: Ask about the required maintenance for the grate you are considering, as maintenance contributes towards an effective and safe grate. Marine grade stainless steel requires minimum maintenance and is corrosion resistant.
