Does your site suffer from poor drainage? When it rains, what happens to your company car park? Does it start to fill with water so that visitors are eventually forced to wade through the water to reach your offices from their cars? Maybe poor drainage on your site has caused other problems. Perhaps staff have started to abandon their cars for the evening rather than get wet trying to reach them. Maybe you find that water spreads across your grounds, turning the whole area into a boggy mess. If there are drainage issues on your site, the most effective solution is to install custom grates at the lowest part of your land, where the water will always gather. Once the custom grates have been fitted, the water should drain naturally so that excessive flooding is avoided.
Flooding can be a serious problem, but water in the right place on your property can be an attractive feature. Do you want water to flow from a fountain, or perhaps you have been thinking about adding a small pond outside your company headquarters Maybe there is already a nearby stream that you want to turn into a visual feature on the landscape. Water has many benefits, but there is always the risk that it will flow where you don't want it. By fitting custom grates around the water feature, you can contain the water within a set area and ensure that every other part of your property remains dry.
Outside, custom grates can be useful to catch water, but inside your building they can have another role. If your site is used for industrial purposes, it's common for there to be chemicals used or processes undertaken on the site that will create fumes. Unless these fumes are correctly dealt with, they can be not just unpleasant but deadly. By fitting custom grates around your premises, you can encourage the free movement of air. If the air can move freely, it is less likely there will be a dangerous build-up of gas or unpleasant odours. Free movement of air can also help with temperature control, boosting productivity by ensuring that your premises are a pleasant place for everyone to work.
