The Importance of Garage Drain Covers

Whether you’ve just gotten a brand-new garage floor installed, or you are looking for ways to spruce up your garage on your own, having a durable garage drain cover is essential.

Garage drain covers help prevent the build-up of water or other fluids in your garage by providing an open, easy pathway for liquids to drain. For garages with multiple drains or centrally located drains, a broken or uneven drain cover can serve as a tripping hazard if it’s not fixed. Drain covers are also part of the aesthetics of your garage, so having a drain cover that’s old and rusted detracts from the overall look of the space.

Since garage drain covers are a central part of your garage, our team has created a product that is built to work better than the rest. If you’re investing in a new epoxy garage floor, then you need to pair it with one of our drain covers for a modern, clean look.

So what exactly makes our drain covers the best?

What Makes Our Garage Drain Covers Better Than The Rest?

Rusted garage drain coversOur garage drain covers are powder-coated carbon steel drain covers that are proudly made in the USA. Another common type of drain cover on the market is the traditional cast iron drain cover, which may be what you have in your garage. But there’s a reason we didn’t opt for the traditional model.

When compared to cast iron drain covers, our covers are resistant to corrosion or rust. Iron drain covers are prone to rust when exposed to moisture — which they are quite often. Our drain covers also have much higher tensile strength compared to iron, which means they are difficult to break.

When it comes to the unpredictability of Ohio weather, you want a drain cover that can withstand temperature changes. Our powder-coated carbon steel covers withstand high heat or extreme cold, and are resistant to screeching, chipping, and fading. Iron covers are brittle in cold temperatures, and over time they discolor, chip, and expand with corrosion. Another key difference is that our drain cover is higher density material, especially when compared with iron covers.

Finally, when you’re looking to purchase a new garage drain cover, you have to consider the longevity. Our drain covers have a lifetime warranty, which means there will never be a need to replace them. Iron covers need to be replaced much more often due to how easily they rust. And, when you shop our drain covers, you benefit from unlimited size offerings. We are proud to offer you a customizable way to find your next drain cover. Traditional covers simply don’t have this flexibility. What you see is what you get.
