Going back as far as the Roman times, in ancient Rome Man has started using stone to cover drain covers.

The layman term for drain cover (grate) is manhole cover. Say "manhole cover" and images of spies/heros making use of the underground sewage system popping out of manhole cover in Hollywood films appear.Historically from the time that Man invented the sewage system since the Roman Times to drain water and urban waste away for sanitation purposes, manhole covers (drain covers or grates as we prefer to call them) have already been invented out of the necessity to stop people from falling into underground sewage and also to prevent large objects from entering the drains which cause choking which eventually may cause flooding.Fast forward to the modern day, the sewage system is still being used under all cities worldwide. Rather than the crude stone manhole covers the Romans use in the ancient days, nowadays we have special steel reinforced stone gratings that provide the thousand year old function of covering the inlets of our sewage system.Much more than a cover, check out Jonite's range of drain covers (drain gratings) here: http://www.jonite.us/products/creative- Going back as far as the Roman times, in ancient Rome Man has started using stone to cover up drain covers.
