'GRATE - TEK'  ENGINEERING
Our driveway, stormwater and pit grate sizes are listed below. If you don't see the size your looking for we can fabricate it for you. 
**All our C, D & E class  grates are galvanised and carry our 10 year structual guarantee.
**Recessed Driveway Grates.

These grates slip into a recessed drain and are perfect for new drainage systems. They do not require a frame, They sit 'flush' to the surface and don't 'klang' when they're driven over.
To recess the drain at pouring stage, your concreters will need to add a piece of 30 x 30 timber to the top of their boxing to create the recess for the grate to sit in place once the pour is done, so your top opening will always be the size of the grate, and the body of the drain will be 60mm narrower. ( 30mm deep, 30mm each side. Quieter, neater, & no noisey framework )

A-200-R  200mm wide and 1.0 in length. Load bars at 30 x 5. Side bars at 30 x 5    
                                                                                                                                           
A-250-R  250mm wide and 1.0 in length. Load bars at 30 x 5. Side bars at 30 x 5.       

A-300-R  300mm wide and 1.0 in length. Load bars at 30 x 5. Side bars at 30 x 5.

We try to keep most of these sizes in stock, but it's always a good idea to ring
or fax an order before you need to pick them up.

If we don't have your size in stock, then there will be a 7 to 10 day leed time.

If you don't see the size you need here, we will custom build it for you.

**Grate frames.

All our grate frames are different sizes in order to match our grates. Should you require a frame, You should contact us to discuss the allowances that need to be made to fit a recessed grate frame ( usually another 15mm in width and 6mm in depth for a standard recessed grate within the  frame. ) Frames are always set in place before the cement is poured !
Please note : Grate frames are not necessary with our recessed grates, however, we will make and supply them if they are requested.



**Grate Classifications. AS - 3996**

We make grates to a specific standard, Every grate we make is rated to classes - B - C - D and E.

Definitions as set out in Australian Standards 3996 ( Access covers and grates )

Class - B
- ( Light duty ) - Areas including footpaths and light mowers, not including commercial vehicals.
Class C - ( medium duty ) - Areas including footpaths, malls and driveways that are accessable to vehicals including slow moving commercial vehicals.
Class D - ( heavy duty ) - Carriageways of roads and areas open to commercial vehicals.
Class E - ( extra heavy duty ) - General docks and aircraft pavements.

**Please note that all our grates start at and exceed the 'Class - C' rating. We will only make light weight 'Class B' grates on request. Class B pit grates should be fixed with dyna-bolts to the external drain mouth for security and stability, as they are a light weight grate, and not suitable for any sort of commercial traffic.

If you require a size not listed here, drop us a line and we'll discuss your plans

Allow 7 to 10 working days when placing your order, unless otherwise stated.

We will match or beat any written quotes on grates of the same dimension, A.S.A class & quality.


**Heel Safe Grates.

All our Heel Safe grates are custom made allowing only a 10mm hole between the 25mm loading flats to let water flow through to the drain. We can make these in either pit, recessed or self supporting styles.
