stormwater silt traps for drains

Stormwater Drain Silt Trap

The silt warden or silt trap is a cost effective drain pit protection device designed to protect stormwater systems during the construction of infrastructure projects – in particular, road ways. It captures silt, course sediments and debris that can affect stormwater drainage and form blockages within the system. This solution is especially effective when installed in the early stages of construction and landscaping activities.

silt trap For construction sites

Our silt traps fit inside an existing drain pit and is held in place by the drain grate making it perfect for construction sites. The unit is fabricated using superior, UV stabilised horticultural shade cloth with webbing located around the skirt edge. The webbing provides additional strength and allows for easy removal with a forklift or other lifting equipment. Additional protection can be provided using silt socks to surround the pit.  If your construction site needs silt traps or other silt, sediment and erosion control products, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Applications
  • construction sites
  • roadworks
Dimensions
  • 1.3mL x 1.3mW x 50mmD skirt
  • 600mmL x 600mmW x 600mmD tapered basin
Installation

The silt warden is easy to install. It is sized to fit a standard drain pit. You simply lift the grate, fit the silt warden in the pit and use the grate to hold it in place. Reinforcement can be achieved using zip ties to attach the handles to the grate.

Maintenance

Once installed the device and the pit should be inspected both on a regular basis and after rain events. Once the silt warden has reached capacity it can be removed using heavy equipment such as a forklift. It should then be responsibly disposed of according to local regulations.
