Custom Tree Guard

Custom Tree Guard Grate Installed

GDP recently supplied a customer with a custom fabricated stainless steel heelguard tree grate and frame.  The tree grate was installed in a public school in the Sydney metro area.

Working alongside our customer, we discussed the design and material that would be best suited to the environment and location of installation. Some of the materials that can be considered include Galvanized Mild Steel, Ductile Iron, Aluminium, FRP & Stainless Steel 304 or 316.

Tree grates are generally used as an architectural feature, but they also help protect, preserve & nurture the tree roots.  This is at the same time while it aids the drainage to help further nurture the soil.  The small gaps in the grating prevents the soil being polluted from outside elements such as litter.  In addition, the design also reduces the risk of becoming a trip hazard in high pedestrian areas.

Cast iron tree grates can be considered a thing of the past in the modern day, especially if you are looking for a more aesthetically pleasing product.  Stainless steel wedge wire is just one of the many options we can provide in our ever expanding stainless steel product range. These can be manufactured/tailored to your requirements, as every project (and tree) is unique!

This product can be seen in many applications such as:

  • Sidewalks/Nature Strips
  • Car Parks
  • Shopping Centres
  • Schools, University and other Educational facilities.
  • Courtyards
