The silt warden 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.
The silt warden fits inside an existing drain pit and is held in place by the drain grate. 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.
