The grate on my recently installed channel drain is warping or bending in the hot sunshine!

I was told before getting this drain that it was a choice between the plastic grate or metal grate versions, i was told that the metal versions can rust over time so opted for the plastic.

The bend is only slight and where the hottest sun hits so not a huge issue but disappointing all the same.
I don't know if i could get a universal metal grate to replace it without taking the whole thing out or if anybody else has had issues of this nature.
Enjoy everyday like it's your last!

    And there's me with a metal grate wishing I'd gone with plastic as the holes are smaller & might stop the leaves getting in!
    Tall, dark & handsome. Well two out of three ain't bad.

    I suppose they both have downsides, the holes do seem smaller on the plastic but never thought about the leaves problem now autumn is coming.
