Frame Surround Ends and Block Ends
A number of the Lathamgrate™ Series can be supplied with frame surround ends and block ends. This is when the external edge frame is carried around the end of the grate. This solution is most commonly considered with the ALGRS, BRGRS, HDGLS, ALGLS, BRGLS, ALGNS and BLGNS Series grates. This option finishes the grates off nicely, and reduces the possibility of trips when surface mounted grates are installed (ALGRS and BRGRS), and where traffic can approach from multiple directions.
A number of the Lathamgrate™ Profiles can be supplied with block ends. The ALBATH and BRBATH Bathroom Series Grates and Liners are supplied with block ends as standard. This results in a removable grate from the aluminium or brass liner which forms the trough.
Similarly the ALGLS, ALGLSX and HDGLS Series with galvanised liner and the BRGLS Series with brass liner also can be supplied with block ends to suit the overall required length, once again resulting in a trough.
Hidden Locking Mechanisms
The following Lathamgrate™ ranges can be supplied with hidden locking mechanism, ALGLS, ALGNS, BRGNS, ALGLSX, ALPAN and HDGLS.
As an alternative the ALGRS and BRGRS can be fixed through the side flanges. This option reduces the chance of someone accessing or stealing the grates. Depending on the profile selected, this would consist of an aluminium or brass plate about 25mm x 12mm being welded to the underside of the grate with a locking bar that is screw fixed through the top of the grate. When the locking bar is tightened the grate insert will be held in place. The ALGRS and BRGRS surface mounted series can be site fixed through the side flanges to reduce the likelihood of theft.
Factory Welded Spigots
On request grates with trench liners can have a factory welded spigot welded into the liner in an appropriate location. The spigot size is dependent on the trench width.
