How to Measure a drain grate

How to measure for your drainage grate


Determining what replacement grate you need can be a challenging prospect because trench drain manufacturers create grates to fit their own systems.

For a trench system grate replacement quote, we’ll need:

Exact width of the trench or channel

  • Exact width of the trench or channel
  • Shoulder height
  • Channel width
  • What will be driving over the grates

If you’re still unsure that the grate is correct take several photos of your drain and existing grates and email them to us at [email protected]. Our experienced staff will help determine what system you have installed.
