Protecting side entry drains from silt and sediment is an ongoing challenge for any worksite. What if there was a silt sock alternative that prevented flooding whilst trapping silt and hydrocarbons? Thankfully, a solution does exist and its taking the Civil Construction industry by storm – Introducing the GuardDog drain filter.
A Tough & Effective Drain Filter
The GuardDog features Spilltration Husky absorbent filtration media. Made from 100% recycled post-consumer waste, these absorbents effectively trap silt, sediment and hydrocarbons. What’s more, this drain filter can absorb up to 10 litres of hydrocarbons, releasing only clean water. It’s made using heavy duty plastic mesh, capable of being driven over by heavy trucks and machinery. Unlike coir logs and silt socks, the GuardDog will not split when compressed.
The GuardDog is the only line of defence you’ll need for your worksite, protecting waterways as contaminated stormwater passes through it. Paint, diesel, sand, concrete – nothing will get past the GuardDog.
Low Maintenance, Easy Install
Install the GuardDog to drain and gutter systems in minutes via:
- Concrete screws or DynaBolts – Drill holes and secure the Guard Dog in place. Use washers above the eyelets for added security.
- Metal or cable ties – Thread through drainage grates and eyelets to secure.
If easy drain access is required, the Guard Dog can also be gutter mounted with bolts or ties on one side, and secured with a sandbag on the other.
Side-entry GuardDogs feature aluminium strips for a perfect fit on side drainage systems – simply mould to the gutter contour and then mount in place. Cleaning the GuardDog is easy too, just brush away any leaves or debris that builds up during use. Also can be reused for other work sites.
A Custom Fit, with Sizing to Suit You
GuardDog drain filters come in a standard 1220 x 810mm size to suit most drains, with a cut out for extreme flooding (available without by request). Of course not every drain is the same, so custom GuardDogs are also available to suit your requirements. Best of all, they’re made right here in Australia, so you can get a GuardDog onsite quickly to protect your drains and waterways.
