What are Plastic Grates and how are they used?
Plastic grates are polymer panels that allow sunlight, water and debris to pass through their patterned/textured surfaces, keeping the walking area clean and while maintaining good traction for foot traffic. They are not structural/load-bearing, but when properly supported by joists, they can support light-to-medium weight boxes, making them ideal for garage and attic storage. They also provide effective footing for lakeside docks and walkways around in-ground pools, and can be used to protect grassy areas temporarily when moving heavy objects around your landscape.
Technical specifications are available to assist with installation. Always check with your home constractor to ensure they are appropriate for your specific needs and can be installed safely before adding plastic grates to your home’s construction.
