0834-Brentwood Drain Covers

Product: Fiberglass Drainage Ditch Covering
Process: Pultrusion
Materials: Fiberglass reinforced vinyl ester grating

  • DURADEK® I-6000 1" grating (currently DURAGRID®)
  • DURADEK® I-6000 1-1/2" grating (currently DURAGRID®)
User: Brentwood, CA Community

A major national home builder selected Strongwell’s DURADEK® I-6000 fiberglass grating to safely guard a newly built drain trench in a Brentwood, California community. The concrete trench was in close proximity to the sprinkler system, so metal grating would have presented corrosion and rust issues. Safety was also important because the 3' deep trench bordered a public bike trail.

The DURADEK® fiberglass grating solved all the issues by providing a sturdy covering for the trench that was corrosion resistant and attachable to the concrete with discrete stainless steel clips. The client was extremely satisfied with the user friendly grating and mentioned that the Strongwell team was very helpful in product selection, delivery requirements and installation assistance.
