How to replace drain pit cover for driveway?


i I have 70x70 drain pit on my property with large holes

id like to change it to narrow slits cover, but unsure where to buy it and also I believe depth would be important as car would drive on top. I saw one at Westfield shopping centre

Re: How to replace drain pit cover for driveway?

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @Leondotcom. It's terrific to have you join us, and many thanks for your question about drainage grates.

I think you'll find that style of mesh is termed "heel friendly". Check out our Everhard Industries Class B Heel Friendly Galvanised Grate - To Suit Series 600 Pit. The dimensions of this grate are 690mm x 690mm, so if you are measuring across the grate, then this one would be too large. I am unaware of any 680mm grates and they could be a proprietary size for the pit you have installed.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
