Ornamental Floor Grids
The Victorians originally used floor grids, also known as floor grilles, as a way to disguise heating pipes. Today, they are still an important feature used as heating covers, air vents, drainage covers and underfloor heating. Floor grids can also be used purely for aesthetic purposes, simply as a decorative floor finish.
Alitex greenhouse floor grids are made from cast iron and will develop a surface rust when in contact with moisture, this never causes damage and indeed gives a weathered finish that ages beautifully.
A great advantage of the Victorian floor grids is that they are non-slip, particularly when wet, making it a sensible yet attractive feature.
Alitex ornamental floor grids are available in two standard sizes:
11.8” x 47.2” and 23.6” x 47.2”
