ACO 'Signature' grates
‘Signature’ grates can be made to any width, length and shape or made to suit ACO’ manufactured channels.
Possible applications include stormwater drains, building wastewater drains, floor matting, door thresholds, tree and HVAC grilles. The ‘Signature’ range comprises a large selection of stainless steel longitudinal grates with 3mm and 5mm wire.
The grate is constructed using advanced high frequency welding technology. By comparison, other grates available in the industry use conventional technology resulting in lower and more varied average joint strength and dimensions. ACO has access to technology that delivers optimum and even energy to each joint in the grate resulting in both superior and consistent joint strength. The consequences are long term dimensional and structural integrity over varied and demanding long term vehicle and pedestrian loading conditions. The superior welding process together with “in-process” surface polishing and post fabrication finishing treatment provides superior visual and dimensional finish to conventional manufacturing processes.
