Grid Drains for Copper and Bronze Vessels
October 31, 2014

Pop-up drains allow a sink to be filled with water and released. But many consumers have no need for this function. Therefore, MR Direct recently introduced grid-style drains. These drains allow water to pass through while catching any debris. They are available in three different finishes: chrome, brushed nickel, and oil-rubbed bronze. What may not have been made readily-apparent at the time of their introduction, is that one of these finishes is the perfect choice for our copper and bronze sinks.

The oil-ribbed bronze finish, not only works well with many glass, stone, and porcelain models; but it makes a color-coordinated, artistic statement with copper and bronze basins. The reddish-brown tone of this drain blends beautifully with the natural colorings of these two classic sink materials.

The oil-rubbed bronze grid drain is both durable and handsome. It is constructed of the same rugged materials used in our pop-ups. The only difference between the two styles is the obvious; fixed grid holes appear in place of the pressure sensitive cap. It should be noted that the grid drain comes in two forms relevant to type of sink it is used in - with an overflow or without. Solid brass construction, easy and reliable installation, and full coverage under the MR Direct one-year warranty, are further reasons to match your copper or bronze sink with a new oil-rubbed bronze grid drain.
