Stainless steel gratings are economic, durable and appealing and are well-known for their diverse applications from Industrial flooring to home decor and shower floors. To most people, the only images that come to mind with regard to steel gratings are industrial floors and other applications that we see every day like those on pavements, curbs, and parking areas. Gratings are designed to provide proper ventilation or flow of air or water, anti-slip surfaces in industries, and floor covers with low maintenance requirements.
Apart from the more traditional and common uses of steel gratings in construction, public facilities, commercial spaces, and in industrial and manufacturing establishments, and their home uses in gardens and backyards, these gratings can also be used in home kitchens, professional kitchens, bars, and breweries. Whether you’re a professional chef, a home cook, or even a normal person who has friends over for a couple of drinks or a party, and you’re tired of cleaning up when you spill something, you should consider installing floor grates with a drainage or filtration system underneath.
Uses of Steel Gratings in Kitchens
Gratings can be incorporated into your countertops, floors, or even at the entry of your pantry. Channels or narrow drains can be constructed or laid under the gratings, leading to an outlet, preventing your kitchen floor from flooding.
Bar and counter top steel gratings
Kitchen counters and bar tops are the most common places where we tend to keep out bowls, glasses, and mugs. We frequently tend to drop or knock over our glasses and bowls unintentionally, causing a mess. In other cases, leaving a cold bottle of water or a glass of cold water on a counter, causes the bottle to sweat, i.e. water to drip down the sides. Both these problems can be addressed by installing a drain channel into your kitchen counters and bar cabinets.
These drain channels are commonly made using stainless steel to prevent it from rusting or deterring, fitted with a steel grate or custom design grating on the surface. Using Stainless steel gratings as surface covers can also add to the beauty and overall appeal of your kitchen or bar.
Stainless steel gratings or floor grates can be installed in patterns or designs, incorporated into all kinds of flooring. Generally, these grates cover openings to underground drains, or drain channels, which are used to dispose of water and other liquids that spill or leak onto the kitchen floor.
Floor grating strips are commonly found in almost every professional kitchen, around counters and along the middle of the floor. These steel gratings and drains not only help remove and dispose of water from the kitchen floor, it also provides an ease of cleaning up spilled soup, sauce and other liquids.
Sink Grids and Grates
Sick grids and grates are must-haves if you like to spend your time in the kitchen and do your own dishes. Sink grids are steel grates or thick mesh grids that elevate items in your sink so that the drain does not get blocked. Sink cover steel gratings are like typical sink covers with integrated steel gratings. These extend your countertops over sinks to provide you with more workspace in the kitchen, with grates to allow water to drain into the sink.
