Stormtech’s revolutionary Wave Grate, a first-of-its-kind Australian drainage solution, is making waves in the industry. Recently honoured with the prestigious Good Design Award, Wave Grate redefines modern bathroom drainage with its innovative design and functionality.

Decades of dedicated research and development led to the creation of Wave Grate, Stormtech’s inaugural aluminium grate. Designed and manufactured in Australia, this product caters to architects, specifiers, and home-owners seeking a mid-range, Australian-first drainage alternative. With a unique wave profile seamlessly integrating into modern interiors and exteriors, Wave Grate ensures efficient water removal.

Revolutionising Drainage

Made from locally sourced and treated anodised aluminium, Wave Grate is a certified high-flow linear drainage solution complying with WaterMark WMTS:-040:2021, exceeding the Plumbing Code of Australia and Australian Building Standards.

This innovative solution offers design flexibility with easy-to-clean options in silver, brass/gold, or satin black finishes, meeting the needs of both residential and commercial spaces.

Stormtech’s Wave Grate has been honoured with distinction at the prestigious 2023 Australian Good Design Awards.

A Fusion of Design and Innovation

Emphasising its Australian identity, Stormtech’s Managing Director, Troy Creighton, states, “Wave Grate is 100 percent Australian.” This recognition aligns with Stormtech’s reputation for combining Australian expertise with design-forward solutions.
