Roof drains are a vitally important feature to any building. They are the first line of defence in preventing water from entering your apartment or building.
Flat roofs pose unique difficulties. Without well planned flat roof drainage and correct installation, flat roofs can suffer from pooling (or ponding water). Left unchecked, this can lead to the formation of mould and fungus, roof deterioration, and even leave it vulnerable to leaking or impaired structural integrity!
At Auswave Products, we supply stainless steel roof drains for the ultimate in functional and long lasting rooftop drainage systems!
Roof Drains Vs. Gutters
We provide a range of stainless steel grates for domestic and commercial roof drains alike.
Our roof grating is installed into the roof flooring, so unlike gutters, they do not create an eye-sore from street level. Furthermore, since they are not limited to the circumference of the building, they can be used on very large flat roof tops.
Why Choose Stainless Steel Roof Drains for Flat Roofs?
As far as materials go, stainless steel is the ideal choice for harsh roof-top environments. Subjected to the elements, be it extremely hot or cold, torrential rains and hail, stainless steel roof drains can endure it all.
Firstly, stainless steel is a corrosion resistant material, it tolerates vast temperature ranges and it is strong and has good impact resistance. Compared with other roof drain products which can rust, fail, or crack, stainless steel supplies a solid performing and long lasting product. Who wants the expense of replacing a roof-top drainage system, let alone an entire roof? Get it right from the start with our stainless steel roof drains!
