Sanitaryware Supplies Company secures exclusive UK distribution of Grate Seal range
Sanitaryware Supplies Company (SSC) has secured the exclusive UK distribution rights of the groundbreaking Grate Seal drainage solution range - originally brought to international market by the environmentally-conscious Australian firm Gentec.
The self-fitting seals can be retrofitted to any existing floor drains, providing odour prevention and 'pest-proofing', making it ideal for a commercial kitchen environment. It is both easy to install and can be fitted to new and existing facilities.
Gentec's Grate Seal is expected to be a welcome addition to a number of other markets and outlets, including health and aged care, education, shopping centres, sports and leisure centres, disability and accessibility, food and processing industry, spas, hotels and education.
Unlike many other drainage solutions available to the market, Grate Seal is manufactured from a single piece of rubber, incorporating a silver-based bactericide, which prevents microbes from reproducing and avoiding a build-up of biofilm. Additionally, it prevents access to the building of vermin and fruit flies and helps to prevent infection.
The rubber-composite construction also makes the Grate Seal flexible, closing as soon as the flow of water has stopped to prevent any backflow or trap any bugs that are attempting to escape.
The removal of multiple elements makes the Grate Seal a durable solution and is in line with SSC's philosophy of providing long-lasting products which require minimal maintenance.
Grate Seal also uses friction to sit in the drain, which means fixing kits are not required and the devices can be removed as much as necessary without requiring the flooring to be removed or affected.
"I am delighted to be able to bring such a quality and innovative product to the UK," says Andy Dukelow, managing director of SSC. "Gentec Australia is committed to the continuous development of better, more efficient products which means better value and durability and Grate Seal embodies this."
