Trench Drain Systems expanded its decorative offering for NDS Mini Channel with a new pattern of bronze and aluminum grating. The design, borrowed from Chester Cathedral in Chester, England, (shown below) is heel-proof, subdued and stylish. It adds a solemn aesthetic to the hardscape and hints of a yearning for the innocence of old.
Chester Cathedral, previously Saint Werburgh’s Benedictine Abbey, was built in the 10th century on the site of a church founded in part by the infamous Lady Godiva. The grating shown below was probably installed during a major rebuilding that occurred in the 1900s.
Trench Drain Systems adds the “Cathedral” grate to their decorative grating product line, which also includes a standard slotted grate and an oblong perforated pattern known as “Raindrops.” All three patterns are available in bronze and aluminum.
The bronze grates are available in a natural finish or a ground (polished) finish.
The aluminum grates, made from a corrosion resistant alloy, are available in 3 standard powder coatings as well as standard natural finish. The standard powder coating colors are Sand, Granite and White. Custom colors are available if your project requires that attention.
Each grate lends itself well to drainage applications in elegant outdoor living spaces and swimming pool deck. With two counter sunk holes allowing the grate to screw into the NDS Mini Channel, these grates are secure for even the most trafficked areas.
