Inlet Protection Devices 2018-01-25T10:51:40+00:00

Protect the safety and cleanliness of your storm drains with inlet protection devices that will trap sediment and keep it out of your water supply. Rather than facing downtime on your construction site due to flooding from nearby storm drains, these inlet protection devices will effectively drain stormwater while preventing lifted soils from contaminating the water.

Wimco Road Drain Curb & Gutter

Ensure your construction continues without facing drain overflow after heavy rainfall with the Wimco Road Drain Curb & Gutter system. This patented product has a unique curved back that blocks stormwater and sediment from entering storm sewers, forcing the water into the Wimco box. The standpipe in the box is what keeps roads from getting flooded during and after rainfall.

It is important to note that Wimco’s Road Drain Curb & Gutter is not a stand-alone best management practice for sediment and water control and is instead meant to work with other sediment control products on-site.

Benefits of Using the Road Drain Curb & Gutter

The Wimco Road Drain Curb & Gutter is a durable and reliable safety measure for your stormwater sewers that will ensure flooding will not occur in your roadways. Other benefits of using the Road Drain Curb & Gutter include:

  • Easy to maintain

  • Visible while in use and out of the way from traffic

  • Non-intrusive installation

  • Reusable

  • Flexible to fit most castings
