metal grate floor

Posted by jbfjersey (My Page) on

When I was little I remember my grandparents having this metal grate flooring on their cellar floor. It wasn't a finished basement--just a place of storage and a workshop for my grandfather to tinker around in. My basement now gets puddles of water periodically so I don't think it can ever be finished. But a metal grate floor would be helpful in keeping items just enough off the floor that they won't get wet when the puddles come. I've googled it but all I get are either fancy metal floor returns or metal flooring for commercial/industrial application. I'm hoping someone on this forum has come across something like this in their "travels."

RE: metal grate floor

Can't say that I've seen anything like that but as you've discovered floor grating is available for commercial/industrial applications both in metal and plastic/resin. Unfortunately the stuff tends to kind of expensive.

Would DriCore work for your application?

RE: metal grate floor

I don't know. I kind of wanted something "open" to help get rid of the water quicker.

I'll investigate the industrial stuff a little more. And see if the DriCore would work.
