An Introduction to Jonite

Back to News
Jonite was inspired by the beautiful and magnificent stone castles built during the Middle Ages & wondered if they could incorporate the rustic appeal of natural stone into durable, functional grates. Thus began their journey to creating the world’s first reinforced stone grate. In the years since, Jonite have developed into a brand that supplies a variety of architectural products in various standard applications. Jonite also provides a bespoke service for all Jonite products.
