Curb Inlet Guard
Storm Drain Inlet Protection
The curb inlet guard is an inlet protector which prevents debris, trash, and other large material from entering a curb drain. Depending upon the needs of the site, two model options are available – insert and modular. Constructed from different filtering materials, both curb guards are able to withstand exposure to debris, as well as UV rays, water, and other outdoor elements.
Construction of the modular curb drain guard features a combination of wedges and drain protectors in a woven, polypropylene material. Wedges fit at the end of each drain protector, keeping it in place. Multiple drain protectors can be inserted for extended lengths.
Made from recycled synthetic fibers, the insert model drain gutter guard uses two heavy-duty tension rods. The rods keep the material secured inside the curb drain. The flush-mounted installation keeps the curb inlet guard from interfering with street sweepers or possibly tripping pedestrians.
