Stormwater Filter Details
An under grate stormwater filter fits beneath drain grates to catch dirt, debris, trash, and sediment before it reaches a city's water system. It has a very low-profile design allowing for heavy pedestrian and vehicle traffic. A storm drain catch basin filter comes equipped with built-in overflow ports to prevent water from pooling during heavy rain events. The catch basin filter is easy to store and is not bulky. When not in use, it folds flat for easy shipping or inventory storage.
The catch basin filters are manufactured of 10 percent monofilament with an opening size of 40 US sieve and a water flow rate of 145 gallons per minute. The collection area is held firmly to the grate with sturdy straps that are 1.5 inches wide and have a tensile strength of 5500 pounds. Catch basin filters can be custom designed to fit a wide variety of city storm drains. Help your site or municipality stay in compliance with state and federal regulations for stormwater when using an under grate filter.
