When selecting a grate there a number of factors that must be taken into consideration, and at Covertite, our experience and expertise allows us to do just that.
For instance, grates used in heavy industrial areas where there is no foot traffic can have relatively wide spacing between crossbars to ensure appropriate strength and load distribution. However, in areas frequented by pedestrians, such as shopping malls and train stations, where narrow heels on shoes may be commonplace, an alternative design is required.
Covertite’s heel guard grates are designed to prevent slim shoe heels from catching between mesh crossbars thus dramatically reducing the potential to cause injury. The attractive state-of-the-art heel-proof design of our guards also minimises the chances of pedestrians slipping on them.
Covertite is a proud supplier of quality products, and our heel guard grates are no exception. They come in a variety of sizes, and all are made from galvanised steel with a class B (light duty) and class D (heavy duty) load rating that fully complies with Australian Standard AS 3996, which means pedestrians and vehicles are both safe to use them.
Our heel-safe heel guard grates are not only ideal for train stations and shopping centres and other commercial applications, they can be used for a wide range of purposes including as a base for dog kennels.
