Decorative Grating for POLYCAST 600

Decorative POLYCAST Grates

There are multiple trench drain systems available on the market today, but not all have the application flexibility as Hubbell’s POLYCAST 600 series. These pre-sloped drain systems are ideal for a variety of projects and often use a standard slotted ductile iron grate, as it is a versatile option. Occasionally, there is a need for a decorative grating option, but up until now, the choices have been limited.

Decorative Ductile Iron

Ductile iron grates are versatile and widely used in both commercial and residential applications. Several decorative grates are available that fit the 6″ POLYCAST trench drain systems. These grates are rated at a Load Class D, making them decorative and heavy-duty.

Locking Devices

Locking devices help secure the grate within the trench drain system and prevent debris from interfering with proper placement and hopping as traffic moves over them. It also serves as a deterrent for theft. They are recommended for proper installation.


An annual cleaning of your trench drain system is the best way to get the most out of your drainage application. Drainage systems are exposed to the elements and need the occasional maintenance to ensure proper water disbursement.
