Ductile Iron Gratings / Trench Gratings

Ductile Iron Gratings / Trench Gratings

Manufactured from Grey Iron (GG20, GG25) and Ductile Iron (GGG50) material Grades and as per BS EN 124 which covers all application sectors.

Gully Gratingsare used to drain out rain and waste water from Roads and enclosed compounds. The hinge in these gully gratings are helpful in tight fixing and also helpful for easy maintenance.

Channel Gratingdrainage systems are useful for surface water drainage application and installed in multiple lengths

CAST IRON VS DUCTILE IRON WHICH IS BEST?
CAST IRON DUCTILE IRON
Impact resistance is poor. Under severe impact it will break. Strong impact resistance. Under sevre impact it will bend.
  • Tensile strength is low
  • No elongation or Ductility
  • ISO 185 : 1985 Grade : 350 (Grey Cast Iron).
  • Tensile Strength: 350 N / mm2 Min.
  • Elongation : Nil.
  • Tensile strength is high
  • Almost twice than cast Iron
  • Moderate elongation & Ductility
  • ISO 1083 : 1987 Grde : 500/7
  • Tensile Strength : 500 N / mm2 Min.
  • Elongation : 7% Min.
Due to lower strength, weight of the manhole covers will be more for a specfic duty. Due to high strength, weight of the manhole covers will be less (Min. 2/3rd) by weight.
Due to higher weight handling will be difficult. Dut to low weight transportation, handling, installation and inspection is easy.
Poor capability of vibration absorption. High capability of vibration absorption.
