CLEAN AND CLEAR CURB APPEAL
Entering a driveway should be a simple, smooth, safe experience for visitors. A driveway’s appearance influences our perception of a property’s quality and contributes significantly to its curb appeal. How a driveway presents and performs is a matter of materials, colours, and aesthetics. Choices for materials/aesthetics are made within available market options and are often limited by budget and cost.
Driveways need to be functional and safe, relying heavily on smart, practical designs. Naturally, the peculiarities and core qualities of the lot, siting of the main buildings, and other factors influence driveway placement. Contouring and native vegetation on site also play a role. It is crucial to consider how water flows onto the site and making sure that the driveway design matches building standards and codes.
Driveway design looks at these factors and many others to come up with the simplest, most cost-effective driveway for your site. If you end up with a flat, uncomplicated driveway, hallelujah! However, in most cases, driveways end up hugging the natural slope of the land, and a sloping driveway means water. When there is water, there needs to be a water collection and/or a drainage system. When there is a water collection system, Paige Stainless, has a driveway drain solution for you!
STREAMLINED STYLE FOR DEFINED DRIVEWAYS
Currently, there are several types of driveway drainage grates and systems available. These include systems that connect to the municipal storm water systems or to soakwells (where site water needs to be discharged back into the water table). Water on the driveway can be made to flow to a point drain or a linear drain.
When it comes to linear drains (also known as strip drains, trench grate and/or driveway channel drains), Paige Stainless offer a range of stainless steel driveway grate drains. Our range suits both public and commercial settings, where a clean, seamless, and smart aesthetic is required. Our linear grates (also made from stainless steel materials) can come in straight or curved sections and can be customised for any setting, with a range of high-end finishes (even gold-plated). We can also integrate a lighting system into our custom grates.
Among our driveway drain grate options is the unique modular drainage system, CLICK DRAIN® an excellent, flexible solution for driveways. This patented product (Australian std patent number 2007902962) enables both builders and plumbers to style the driveway drainage grate on-site, for the most efficient water flow management. CLICK DRAIN® features clever and unique `click` together components, including outlet sections, joiner sections, change of direction sections and stop ends, to create a domestic surface drainage solution for any driveway site requirements.
PAIGE STAINLESS GRATES – A DRIVEWAY SUCCESS
Apart from the aesthetics and functionality of our extensive range of grates, driveway drainage grates need to comply to a further set of safety standards. They may need to be slip-resistant and ensure pedestrian footwear doesn’t get stuck in drainage grates. The grates for driveway drains may need to be able to withstand the weight of heavy, moving vehicles such as cars and trucks. Not to mention the safety issues associated with bikes and bikers as well. We offer products manufactured with high-quality materials, in a range of sizes, to meet all these safety criteria and more.
