Hi,

I have some ACO style drains set into a concrete driveway on the house I've just moved into. All the grates on them have been damaged and I'm struggling to find a replacement for them. They measure 11cm wide and all of the replace grates I find are 11.8cm wide.

https://www.dropbox.com/s....pg?dl=0

Does anyone have any idea where I may be able to get some steel replacements?

Thanks!

I see you are measuring the outside to outside edge? Have you tried asking for inside measurements? I'm sure one of them do 97/ 100 mm

That's Aco Hexdrain in an A15 pedestrian area use only specification. Doubt the covers are available seperately. Not designed to be trafficked......I'd bet the channels will be distorted too. Anything that needs traffic over it should be of a C250 specification.

Thanks for all the replies. I've re-measured and taken some pictures. The channels actually look remarkably good.

Dave_L - all the Hexdrain I can find is still 118mm width. These are 110mm. https://www.mkmbs.co.uk/Documen....ure.pdf
