Curved Grating

Curved Drainage Greats!

Welcome to Auswave, the home of innovative water drainage solutions and architectural grating systems. Let’s explore curved drainage grating technology, its myriad applications, benefits, and the transformative impact it can have on your architectural projects. Whether you’re a building industry professional seeking cutting-edge solutions or a home design enthusiast with a penchant for innovation, this is the entryway to unlocking the potential of curved grating water management systems.

Curved Linear Drainage Grates

Before Curved Linear drainage grates existed, linear drainage grates were the best and sleekest option for water surface management. And linear grates are still essential components in modern drainage systems, offering efficient water management solutions for various applications. Unlike traditional point drains, linear grates are characterised by their elongated shape, enabling them to efficiently collect and channel water along a linear path. Their sleek and unobtrusive design seamlessly integrates into both indoor and outdoor spaces, offering a discreet yet effective solution for water removal. Linear grates also offer excellent hydraulic performance, capable of handling large volumes of water with minimal risk of overflow or clogging. This reliability ensures efficient drainage even during heavy rainfall or high-flow scenarios, reducing the risk of water damage and flooding. Furthermore, the modular nature of linear drainage systems (our unique CLICK DRAIN ®) allows for easy customisation and scalability to suit the specific needs of any project. Whether installed in residential driveways, commercial complexes, or public spaces, linear drainage grates provide an excellent solution for a variety of environments.

But what if you have a seductively curving walkway or organically designed space? Hard straight lines can mar the modern elegant appeal of such spaces, so curved linear drainage grates were born. Modern building industry trends required a paradigm shift in drainage design to suit current market designs. So, the “curved” linear drainage grate was created, combining the functionality of traditional linear grates with a visually striking and architecturally innovative curved profile. Unlike their straight counterparts, curved linear grates offer a dynamic and aesthetically captivating solution for water management in both indoor and outdoor spaces.

The unique curvature of these drainage grates not only adds a distinctive flair to architectural designs but also serves practical purposes. By seamlessly blending into the contours of landscapes or architectural features, curved linear grates enhance the overall visual appeal of the environment while maintaining optimal functionality.

The versatility of curved linear grates allows for seamless integration into a wide range of design styles and settings. Whether incorporated into urban streetscapes, public parks, or private residences, these grates add a touch of sophistication and modernity to any space, elevating the overall aesthetic appeal.
