Need grating or drain covers that can bear heavy loads in high-traffic areas? We manufacture custom drain covers and grating with various load classifications. If you’re beautifying a public park or pavilion with a fountain, we can create water feature drains with SlipNot® coating to minimize the risk of foot traffic hazards. Some other options include:

  • Suitable for high-flow areas
  • Manufactured for precise tolerances
  • Manufactured using an ALGRIP® (slip-resistant) process
  • Adaptable to incorporate lighting
  • Available for long linear drainage systems or curved drainage solutions

Whether you’re the architect working on schematics or the general contractor converting the plans into reality, you’ll appreciate our manufacturing flexibility. When the aesthetics are as important as the functionality, Hendrick is still the answer. We have solutions and decorative options that blend into the water feature or landscape, just as you envision it.


When used in industrial facilities, trench gratings can prevent debris from clogging drains and reduce the risk of workers tripping over drains. Trench grating can be found in applications ranging from roads and highways to truck docks to gas stations to swimming pools. Anywhere there are drains for large-scale operations, trench grating serves an important purpose. Call on Hendrick to manufacture custom trench drains for your project, and you also will be able to count on these advantages:

  • Multiple bar profiles available
  • Straight or curved applications
  • Choose material, style and finish
  • Easy-to-specify designs or full customization
