When you picture a linear surface water drainage system, what do you see? For those who live in cities that receive quite a bit of rain you probably picture a long, semi-wide drain that spans the sidewalk or street collecting water and averting annoying puddles from your daily commute. Others might picture a grate that is located around a fountain that is collecting water for recirculating the fountains water supply and safely draining any splash

Either way, you’d be correct and Paige Stainless has been at the forefront, pioneering the design and development to put these stainless steel grates throughout your city, parks, shopping centres and inside your home. For 21 years we have deeply studied the art of drainage design and, in turn, have developed systems that cover most applications required by the civil and domestic market.

One of our most innovative designs is our PAIGE STAINLESS HEELGUARD ® stainless steel grates. Having both superior water flow techniques and unique design characteristics.  PAIGE STAINLESS HEELGUARD® is a product that has a unique wedge wire design where water flow is easily diverted through the drain in a V-shape in order to give relief to the underside, ensuring particles and debris larger that the aperture remains on the surface. Smaller particles like dirt and dust are freely drained through the heelguard grate and passed through to the sewer or water systems. This design allows for streets to remain clean and water systems unclogged and unpolluted.

We care deeply about the environment (we are GreenTag certified) and made a product that filters the water. Only small particles are allowed to pass through our Heelguard stainless steel grate. Our product stays one step ahead, by disallowing potentially toxic substances from entering precious waterways.


As always, Paige Stainless uses the highest grade stainless steel ranging from 304-316 grade, to manufacture products for municipal and home use. In production, the Heelguard passes the same aesthetic and safety regulations that are put into place for other Paige products going through design teams and rigorous testing to ensure it is indeed the best product on the market. Likewise, each product is produced with care and adheres to all AISI standards further proving it to be the best on the market.

What makes the Paige Stainless Heelguard different than other stainless steel grates?

First, it is incredibly user-friendly and durable. When used on the streets and in municipal areas durability and aesthetic value are imperative. The sleek look of stainless coupled with the durability of 316 grade stainless prevents deterioration, so it won’t break down or warp over time and can blend perfectly with its surroundings.

PAIGE STAINLESS HEELGUARD® earned its name by its design. Heelguard is made to prevent a woman’s high heel from slipping through the cracks. All shoes and heels alike can travel across a stainless steel Heelguard, knowing that their safety and comfort is not being compromised. This unique drainage pattern prevents the likelihood of slipping.
Municipal areas in Australia and abroad recognize PAIGE STAINLESS HEELGUARD®. As it is a crucial component to city walks and industrial facilities. Our stainless steel grates are revered for adherence to public safety. These have been applied to centers and municipal areas in the Middle East, United States of America, Asia and New Zealand.
