These round grilles are used across a wide range of period properties across the country and also overseas. They are suitable for ventilation or for drainage.
Drilled they are often used as vent grilles, whilst undrilled grilles are used to replace missing or damaged drainage gratings. A large number find their way into country estates and farms. One of the farms that might be especially familiar to many is Emmerdale Farm, the fictional TV soap on ITV whose cobbled streets are now drained using one of our 12 cast iron slotted grilles.
Larger properties, especially Georgian and Victorian manor houses had numerous round grilles fitted when they were built and we see a number of like for like replacements.
