Siltsack - High-Flow - Type B (includes curb deflector)
Siltsack is a sediment control device made with a permeable geotextile fabric that can handle strong surges of stormwater. The unique design allows water pass through the catch basin filter while filtering stormwater runoff and preventing silt and sedimentation from clogging the drain system.
The Type B Siltsack is made particularly for combination drains where a drop inlet is coupled with a curb inlet. The built-in curb deflector prevents sedimentation and silt from entering the drain system through the curb inlet as well as the drop inlet.
Routine inspection of a Siltsack’s collected sediment level is important to prevent “ponding” around storm drains.
A Siltsack can be emptied and re-used for the life of the construction project if well maintained.

This product is a simple and cost-effective solution to prevent clogging of catch basins. Designed to be a great flood management mechanism used to avoid the intrusion into the drainage system of silt and flood. The silt and sand are trapped by siltsack but allows water to flow through the drain. to avoid drainage system collapse due to silt sedimentation clogging, These may be used as a main or secondary sediment control unit. maintenance of the siltsack on a daily basis would ensure the proper operation of the product.
Siltsack can be used to avoid the intrusion of silt and sediment into the drainage system by trapping the silt and sediment while allowing the free flow of water. To avoid the collapse of your drainage system due to clogging, siltsack can be used as a main or secondary sediment control method. To function properly, it must be sustained on a daily basis. Available in both high flow and normal flow. A redesigned siltsack is also available to avoid sand and debris from entering through curb openings with a curb opening deflector attached. Siltsack is a product of consistency meant to save time and money. To stop ponding around storm drains, regular inspection of an accumulated sediment level is important.
