According to Troy Creighton from linear drainage expert Stormtech, it’s not just the aesthetics that need to be considered.
“While many people invest heavily in their home extension, creating generous open plan living spaces that combine the kitchen and lounge areas with the deck or patio, resolving the transition between the interior and exterior is sometimes an afterthought.
“Selecting a narrow profile slimline drainage solution provides a level entrance to most thresholds and effectively clears rain water, with minimal impact to the overall design. It’s a seamless transition that looks good and is also safer underfoot for the whole family,” he added.
Stormtech can finish its architectural grates to custom lengths, ready to combine with specialty threshold drain units, to suit any specific requirements. Stormtech accessories, such as waterproof LED lighting, offer a practical and elegant finish to an installation with added ambience for evening entertaining.
“As an added tip, consider the unique design concerns or waterproofing requirements for your location and seek professional advice at the planning stage,” said Troy.
“For example, homes in coastal areas require marine grade stainless steel building materials, including linear grates, to prevent exposed surfaces from deteriorating or become unsightly. Ask your builder lots of questions to ensure your indoor outdoor area has lasting appeal and functionality.”
