Heel Guard Grates – Sydney Greats!

Heel Guard Grating: The Ideal Choice For Sydney Grates

Heel guard is one of the most progressive drain grate innovations in recent years. The drain is highly efficient in draining large volumes of water, while ensuring small debris is left behind rather than ending up in our precious waterways.

HEELGUARD grates are the smart choice for Sydney businesses and home owners, who enjoy the benefits of these durable and effective drainage grills, with an eco-friendly edge.
