ANAE uses black paint, powder coating, electrophoretic paint and hot zinc, etc.

3. Color:

The standard color of  ANAE products is often similar to the natural color of the material itself, like black, grey or silver. But clients are free to choose according RAL color chart.

4. ECO statement:

Nearly of all the material used by ANAE are 100% recyclable. ANAE has been trying to find the most environment-friendly ways to produce its own products.

For example, to promote bamboo benches has been one focus of ANAE’s work in the past two years. ANAE has invested to find the trustworthy material to replace the hard wood.

5. Load class

Load classifications indicate how much force a particular grate can withstand. Following the European product standard of  EN 124 : 1994,  covers and grates are given load classifications designated by six classes:

quality speaks louder

A15, B125, C250, D400, E600, and F900.

The function of the road and square play an important role on choosing the grates with different loading.  For pedestrian areas, a grate with load of 15KN could be enough, while 125KN is required for side walks and small parking lots.

Depending on the design,  materials and production,  different models of  ANAE tree grates have different maximal loading. Most of ANAE grates can meet the demands of A 15, B 125 and/or C 250. 

Please check with our colleague on sales or service department to make sure that you make the right choice considering traffic class.
