Why Do I Need a Slip Resistant Metal Drain Cover?

September 9, 2010

You may wonder why metal drain covers are necessary at your facility.  Chances are, if you have the need for drains, you have the need for slip resistant metal drain covers.  Drain covers are used to prevent large particles from clogging drains while allowing slippery substances to drain properly.  Metal drain covers without a slip resistant surface can become extremely slick and dangerous to those who walk on the bare metal.

If you have the need to drain excessive substances, a slip resistant surface is mandatory.  Drain covers are ideal because they can withstand wheeled and foot traffic and last for years with no adverse affects to the surface.
