Heelguard Slip-Resistant Grating


Heelguard Slip-Resistant Technology Drain Grates

Our PAIGE STAINLESS HEELGUARD ® is an innovative slip resistant wedgewire grating system specially designed for public areas with pedestrian access. The non-slip finish and grid form in our stainless steel grate offer maximum comfort and safety, along with high water removal efficiency. Designed with aesthetics in mind, the narrow profile will seamlessly blend into a range of flooring from concrete to tiles and pavers.

Our architectural style heel guard grating is perfect for civil and municipal drainage. in fact, you would have walked all over our drain grate be it at a shopping centre entrance, public plaza, railway station, streetscapes or outdoors in malls, our high-quality and durable stainless steel floor grates are designed to last.  And found anywhere water and waste run off are required. They can handle a high volume of foot traffic, without worrying about reduced safety and maintenance issues, whilst becoming a feature to last for years to come.

Providing Innovative Solutions

Our stainless steel grates are ideally suited to public areas and pedestrian walkways thanks to the specifically designed heel guard concept. We pride ourselves on coming up with innovative solutions to common problems. Some stainless grill grates do not suit public places, as they are not slip-resistant and high heels can get caught in the relief space.  Furthermore, cheap imports will deteriorate over time causing risk to injury and higher costs in maintenance repair or, more likely, replacement.

How it works?

The unique wire found in our heelguard composite grating creates a grid form that high heel shoes cannot penetrate, waste debris doesn’t get stuck and block, whilst water is able to freely drain. The unique design (wedge wire) helps to prevent public falls and injuries, thus minimising trip hazards that could result in costly lawsuits.

  • Pedestrian traffic
  • Vehicle traffic

Adaptable Technology

Available in different width options, the heel guard technology can be used to cater to a range of needs. With a variety of intake capacity, as well as the option for multiple or singular outlet positions, we can provide for any water discharge needs. We are specialists in the field of custom work and pride ourselves in our ability to adapt our drain grate systems to suit different clients and projects. For custom applications and designs please contact us as we have yet to find a construction that is beyond our capacity for innovation, design and construction.

High Capacity Outdoor Drainage

While safety is one of our top concerns, we also pride ourselves on delivering state-of-the-art solutions for excess water. The design of our multi drain heelguard system allows for more than preventing slips; it also allows for efficient water drainage.

With a 5mm aperture, the non-clogging drain trough grating is designed for high capacity water removal. We know that inadequate drainage systems can have a grave effect on outdoor areas, not only damaging landscape spaces and saturating soil but also drawing in unwanted insects. If the problem is left unresolved, it can even erode building foundations and concrete.

In areas of high rainfall and critical runoff, choose heel guard covers that will provide you with continuous drainage. Robust, yet lightweight and easy to install, heel guard pit grates offer full flexibility at the highest of standards. A system that is very efficient at draining significant amounts of water with ease, while leaving small debris on top, it is perfectly suitable for those who are environmentally-conscious.

High Quality and Maximum Ease

Our unique system has been designed for maximum efficiency. The heelguard drainage channel can be assembled by just about anyone thanks to its ease and simplicity in design. The unique patterned system ‘snaps’ together, so you can easily change direction and form linear lengths to suit your needs. You can choose from a channel, trench, gully or drain, as well as a grate or grill.

Don’t settle for an inefficient drain grill; seek out high-quality with our heelguard storm drain solution. We pride ourselves on manufacturing long-lasting products that meet stringent Australian Standards, so our clients can rest assured that their products will provide the necessary results. With our heel guard standard, you know you are receiving durability and a high standard finish.
