It uses 100% Australian manufactured wedge wire grating and is manufactured from either 304 or 316-grade stainless steel.
It is suitable for civil, commercial and residential applications ranging from bathrooms, poolside, pedestrian walkways, driveway crossovers, balconies and landscaping.
Under the LCARate certification, the products were tested and assessed through a ‘beyond LCA’ Life Cycle Analysis, which employs a Cradle to Grave process and compared against a competitor’s product to produce a Net Positive metric and EcoPOINT Scorecard to show how sustainable the Heelguard product range is. Heelguard received a GOLD rating under the LCARate program. It was rated in categories of Product Synergy, Health & Ecotoxicity, Biodiversity, LCA Score, GHG (Greenhouse Gas emissions) and Social Responsibility, to score a Global GreenTag EcoPOINT of 0.48 – indicating that the product is a planet and health neutral product, with excellent ethics.
