General purpose absorbent socks feature a fast-acting and ultra-absorbent filling, which is designed to retain absorbed liquid. These absorbents are grey in colour and suitable for most types of liquid spills, including water, coolants, hydrocarbons, and most chemicals. Ideal for use on sealed surfaces as a barrier and to prevent pooled liquid from spreading. Each 1.2 metre sock can absorb up to 4.5 litres.
The GuardDog drain filter offers a revolutionary approach to sediment control. It fits over most stormwater drains to effectively prevent silt, sediment, hydrocarbons and debris from entering our waterways and ocean.
The GuardDog works by using an innovative absorbent media called Spilltration® Husky, which is made from 100% recycled post-consumer waste. The material’s fibres absorb hydrocarbons and trap sediment particles as small as 53 microns (0.053mm), finer than a human hair. Spilltration® Husky also delivers exceptional water flow characteristics due to its unique construction, which allows water to wick through, even when saturated with oil.
The GuardDog features a heavy-duty polyethylene mesh top for drive over durability. The Spilltration® Husky absorbent media removes and traps oils, fuels, sheens and sediment. A raised centre helps to create a damming effect and improve performance in high flow situations. Overflow port prevents water from backing up in heavy rain events. Eyelets provide a means to secure the GuardDog to metal grates with metal ties or concrete bolts.
The standard GuardDog drain filter is designed to fit most box and v-grate drains. The side-entry GuardDog is wider and features aluminium strips to contour around most kerb inlet drains with or without grates. Custom sizing is also available by request.
The GuardDog is ideal for protecting drains during construction activity. It can also be used in carparks, manufacturing facilities, waste management, rail yards, refineries. The GuardDog helps to improve environmental compliance and avoid penalty notices.
The GuardDog can be installed in a variety of ways. It can be screwed directly into the concrete, secured to drain grates via metal cable ties or using high-powered magnets. See our installation guide to find out more.
Alternatives such as silt socks and coir logs do not trap hydrocarbons, and drain pollution guards can become overloaded to block drains and cause flooding. Unlike silt socks the GuardDog will not split if driven over – it’s a low profile solution that’s foot and vehicle traffic friendly.
The GuardDog drain filter was verified by the Infrastructure Sustainability Council (ISC) as Australia-first innnovation for its use on the Monash Freeway upgrade. It is listed on iSupply and may assist in obtaining IS Credits for Receiving Water Quality (ISv1.2 Dis-1 / ISv2.1 Env-1), Diversion from Landfill (ISv1.2 Was-2), Innovation Challenge 8 (ISv1.2 & ISv2.1 Inn-1).

Our Sticky Back Absorbent Matting has a sticky adhesive backing which will not only grip to the floor preventing slips and falls, but is also impermeable to liquids. This means that the Sticky Mat can be used to keep floors perfectly clean, no matter what is spilt on top of it. Ideal for use in workshop walkways, entry matting, in supermarket wet areas and in hospital situations such as surgeries.
The General Purpose Standard Pads absorb and contain all non-aggressive fluids of oil and water base. They are perforated along the centre allowing them to be easily divided so you can get the right size pad for the spill. This assists in placing them in small and confined spaces. Pads are sold in an easy-to-use dispenser box or plastic wrapped for cost effectiveness. Each Heavyweight Pad will absorb up to half a Litre!
