Sump Covers (Storm Drain Covers)
Add the natural modern stone aesthetic to your designs for point drainage systems, intermediaries of long open-channel drainage as well as kerb-side drainage. Our reinforced stone technology ensures that you can incorporate elegant stone into your design while ensuring load strength.
= Low heat absorption
= Rust and corrosion resistant
= BS EN 124:2015 & 1433:2002 compliant
= Dielectric properties with excellent electric insulator
= Flexible sizes with the use of Jonite splines to form huge covers
The humble sump cover, or maintenance hole cover, first began life in the Roman Empire as slabs of stone or wood placed over point drainage systems that allowed maintenance workers access to covered drains carrying wastewater and sewage.
This omnipresent sump cover is the basis of inspiration for Jonite’s designs, in which we aim to showcase the beauty of stone with modern technology and excellent craftsmanship.
Today, point drainage systems are found everywhere in the streets, commercial factory areas, residential areas, and more. Point drains require covers to prevent environmental contamination and prevent accidental falls. With Jonite point drain covers and sump covers, architects no longer face the problem of having to place these openings in inconspicuous areas, but instead can use these catch basin grates as an additional design element.
Lower urban temperatures by choosing Jonite sump covers with low heat absorption compared to traditional metal or cast iron grates. Traditional metal or cast iron grates absorb heat during the day, which can create the urban heat island effect through the raised temperature for surrounding buildings. Jonite sump covers were designed to combat the effects of urban warming, which is rapidly becoming a severe issue for cities in the changing climate.
The unique material properties of Jonite products prevent rust and corrosion such that they are equally suited to last a lifetime for both indoor and outdoor applications. It is also theft-resistant, as Jonite hardscape products do not pose any value for scrap due to their stone material integrity.
Jonite catch basin grates and sump covers come in a wide range of standard sizes that can be assembled with the addition of Jonite splines to form huge covers. This feature gives you the added edge of cost-effectiveness and sustainability. For multiple sump covers, a metal sub-frame may be used. Optional Jonite Trimmer Frames can be used to provide aesthetic flair and high-performance support for the heavy-duty channel and sump covers.
Why Choose Jonite Stone (reinforced) Sump Covers (Storm Drain Covers)?
Created from 95% natural aggregates and advanced hybrid polymers, Jonite architectural grates provide a finish which is both luxurious and natural to the touch.
The unique material properties of Jonite products which prevents rust and corrosion mean they are equally suited to last a lifetime for both indoor and outdoor applications.
Rough and natural matte surface enables tremendous slip resistance which are tested by international classifications. This provides a much-needed and unparalleled safety feature for schools and hospitals.
As designers and innovators, the last thing we want to do is stifle creativity. We believe that if you can envision it, we can create it, and with Jonite’s custom-made designs adding new dimensions to your vision, the possibilities are endless.
High Mechanical Properties
Jonite stone products have high mechanical properties such as high flexural strength, compressive strength, impact strength, low water absorption & low heat absorption. These impressive stats add to the overall quality and longevity of its products.
Jonite is available in a wide range of standard colors. More specialised colors are possible with unlimited color customization which allows Jonite to be calibrated to almost any hue or shade desired.
Reinforced with specially treated steel frames, the strength of Jonite grates are world acclaimed. Having coined the word 'stone(reinforced)' for the last two decades, Jonite gratings are compliant to international load standards.
Conventional steel and cast iron grates and castings are highly susceptible to theft due to rising scrap value worldwide. Jonite hardscape products however, do not pose any value for scrap due to their stone material integrity.
