The perfect shade of black

Fashionable and practical, Stormtech’s Black Grate + Channel uPVC Kits are finding favour among those looking to add a touch of excitement to their bathrooms.

The perfect shade of black

Right now, when it comes to bathrooms, the colour black is making its mark. Versatile and suitable for use alongside a range of other colours and tones, it is popping up in bathrooms everywhere and providing them with a hit of drama and glamour.

More and more, gold and black towel rails can be found, fitted alongside white tiles; matte black is being introduced to bathrooms and contrasting with lime green (or even pink) walls; and products like Stormtech’s Black Grate + Channel uPVC Kits are finding favour among designers.

Available in 65mm and 100mm options, these modular kits are designed with adaptability and ease of installation in mind. To facilitate the use of indefinite lengths and corner installation, they may be purchased with joiners and angle joiners.

Unlike alternatives, the kits’ channels are made from uPVC (rather than powder coated stainless steel). Featured alongside black powder coated stainless steel grates, this proves an inspired choice; and ensures the drains are not only cost effective but also of the highest quality.

With Stormtech’s full range of designer grates to choose from, there are options to suit all budgets. All are Australian made and WaterMark certified, and all feature the company’s signature linear drainage system. An industry leader, and winner of the Design Mark at the Australian Design Awards for drainage design. The company is a long-time member of the Standards Australia Committee and has played an important role in the formulation of regulations concerning several plumbing products, including linear drainage.

Unobtrusive and stylish, Modular Black Grate + Channel uPVC Kits are a welcome contributor to the flourishing monochrome bathroom trend.
