Determining what replacement grate you need can be a challenging prospect. There are many different manufacturers of trench drain and catch basin grates and each one makes their grates to fit their own drainage channel or basin. A 3 inch grate from one manufacturer will probably not fit a 3 inch channel from another manufacturer.
Many folks think they have NDS Mini Channel when it could easily be Oldcastle or Carson – or vice-versa. These grates are not interchangeable.
For a trench system grate replacement quote, we’ll need:
- Exact width of the trench or channel
- Shoulder height
- Channel width
- Length of the channel run
- What will be driving over the grates
- Zip Code of where grates will be shipped
The easiest way is to take several photos of your drain and existing grates and email them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our experienced staff will determine what system you have installed. We can then recommend replacement options like polyolefin slotted or steel grates. We also carry a wide assortment of decorative cast iron grates to fit your existing channel or catch basin.
