Anodised aluminium is an electrochemical process where the surface of the aluminium and its alloys are coated to a porous aluminium oxide. Anodising is used to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the surface of the metal parts.
Anodising increases common erosion resistance and wear resistance, making it the second hardest substance known to man (only to be surpassed by diamond).
The oxide on aluminium is naturally corrosion resistant, making it a very hard, abrasive resistant and an insulator.
Anodising process is an electrolytic process for producing thick oxide coating producing a bonded finish that resists corrosion, abrasion and exposure to high industrial, marine and other severe environments. The result of the finish can include either a clear finish or coloured anodic films which will retain and enhance its inherent beauty of the aluminium. Thickness can be controlled and film thickness can range from 10 to 25 microns.
It’s robust features and aesthetics of the anodised aluminium makes it ideal for both residential or commercial projects.
Since the introduction of aluminium in the 1920’s, finishing techniques have continued to be refined and with recent breakthroughs in colouring techniques anodising products one of the best aluminium finishing options in the industry.

According to the Aluminium Anodizers Council
Having trained hundreds of wholesalers and their staff as well as trades to educate them on our aluminium floor grates, Lauxes Grates believe product knowledge is the key to providing “grate” customer service. Lauxes Grates are determined to educate all who use and sell our grates to ensure there is no miscommunication surrounding our products and to answer any questions or hesitations they may have.
These training sessions also allow Lauxes Grates to refine and continually improve on all aspects of the business by providing valuable feedback from clients. If your store would like to book a training session with your local Lauxes representative please fill out the details below and a Lauxes team member will be in touch.
Please allow approximately one hour for each training sessions.
This cleaning should take place after installing your Lauxes linear floor grate and shall involve the removal or wiping of dust, dirt, glue (silicone) or any form of visual “deposits” that sit on the anodised surface. These can quickly be removed with a dry or damp cloth.
Contrary to what people say, linear floor drains are easier to maintain and can remove up to 80% more hair debris and grime than regular drains. Our easy roll out system, as featured in the tile insert range, enables the consumer to roll back the top grate for easy cleaning underneath.
Anodised coatings should be washed down on a regular basis (at least once every six months in less severe applications and more often in marine or industrial applications). The soot and grime which builds up gradually on the surface from time to time contains moisture and salts which will adversely affect the anodised coasting and should be removed.
Whilst the shower recess is in constant use of water flowing through, outdoor applications such as balconies and around the pool areas would benefit from the occasional hose down throughout the year to prevent any build-up of external elements such as dust, sitting on the grate for an extended period.
Soapy water is the recommended method of cleaning. Mild detergents can be used to wipe and remove any matter or debris caught in drainage area. Using a mild cloth (nylon abrasive cleaning pad or brush) to run over surface and warm water to rinse and dry with clean cloth.
Products such as White King, Jiff and ammonia based products may also be used.
Do not use abrasive or harsh chemicals such as acidic products on the grates. Also, do not use excessive force to remove any stubborn marks.
Although anodised aluminium possesses exceptional resistance to corrosion, discolouration and wear, harsh chemicals and elements can tamper with its overall appearance. For example, construction soils such as mortar or acid should be removed as soon as possible and not allowed to dry. Other aggressive alkaline or acidic products should not be used.
