Stainless Steel for Hygiene and Food Safe Construction.

Stainless Steel Grates – the Hygienic Choice

At a time when we are being urged by health experts and government officials to mind our hygiene practices more than ever before, it has never been a better time to switch to stainless steel drainage grates, the hygienic option.

While stainless steel is in no way antibacterial surface of itself (just like touching a bar of soap does not make one’s hands instantly clean.,. come on!), as a non-porous material, stainless steel surfaces can be easily sanitised (notice that your cutlery is stainless steel). Furthermore stainless steel can withstand high temperatures as well as chemicals, thus no mere coincidence that it is the go-to material in locations and facilities where the utmost of sanitation is required, such as in pharmaceutical and food processing facilities as well as operating rooms!

With experts suggesting we leave our shoes at the door if we have been out, thus preventing COVID 19 from making its way into our houses via our feet, flooring surface ought not be overlooked as an imperative part of our cleaning processes. Choose stainless steel over other materials for grated flooring surfaces such as bathroom and laundry drains, as well as commercial application like door entry mats. Stainless steel drainage grates can be easily cleaned of dirt and debris thanks to that aforementioned non-porous surface and further can withstand sanitisation through high heat or effective chemical disinfectants.

Various amazing plated grates can be supplied – Copper and brass, for example, have a history of being anti-viral, superbug and bacteria-killing (read about it here). Gold for its amazing visuals and ability to clean to an amazing shine. And, printed drainage grates to match any design or decore you can imagine!
