The Accrete Design Series 2 Two Stage Level Threshold Grate System is custom designed to suit every project.
Simply installing the U shaped channel manufactured from Stainless Steel up against the exterior foundations of the building it creates a *** to allow for concrete to be poured up against it.
The grates have been designed to lock into the channel using supports that prevent the grates from slipping along or into the channel while also not comprising the strength for uses in high traffic areas. The grates are manufactured from 316 grade Stainless Steel with multiple slot pattern and colour options.
Scope of use
The Accrete Two Stage Series 2 Channel and Grate system has been designed to solve all level threshold situations where the end user requires a step free transition from the outdoors to inside.
The Stainless Steel channel is custom made with inbuilt fall running to either the inline sumps or dropper outlets to eliminate the need to either box out channel or screed the fall on site.
The Specifically design lock in cross braces not only keep the channel in shape during installation, but also create a patented lock in system for the grates to stop any movement in them.
Once the channel is installed the grates are custom made with a variety of slot pattern options at the desired width to allow for the required 12mm grate to cladding/joinery gap.
The Accrete two stage channel and grate systems all provide a nice straight outside channel edge to finish up against with tiles, pavers or exposed aggregate concrete with the grate widths changing to allow for different cladding types and joinery situations.
At Accrete Design we custom make all our products and although our Two Stage systems are made to Class A load rating we can certainly increase this after some consultation to establish your requirements.
