Protection for Curb Inlets
Curb Inlet Protection Guards are an easy way to protect curb-side drains during land clearing, construction, maintenance or road repair. Designed to sit directly in front of drains to filter out pollutants from water runoff, these curb inlet guards protect drains while still allowing water to flow into the gutter. Depending on your specific requirements, available inlet protection options include poly gutter guards, filtration gutter logs, and attachment filtration protectors
The Curb Gutter Log is known for its flexibility and quick installation. Built as a continuous filtration fabric unit, these guards can bend in front of gutters to block sediment, debris and other materials from entering the drain. Best of all, no additional installation materials are required. Fast, easy, and economical, these curb inlet protection logs are the perfect addition to any job site.
Gutter Guard Log Advantages:
The Curb Gutter Guard is a great option for areas with high rainfall or water flow. Gutter guards are installed using wedges placed strategically throughout the guard. This helps the guard stay in place protecting the drain and filtering runoff. Helpful features include:
- Woven Polypropylene Fabric Fabric
- Installs with Anchoring Wedges Placed Throughout the Log
- Available Dimensions:
- 4" dia. x 36" L (102 mm x 915 mm)
- 4" dia. x 48" L (102 mm x 1,220 mm)
The Outside Curb Gutter Guard Plus is a long term option designed to filter sediment while remaining out of way of road traffic and pedestrians. These guards lie flat against the curb to protect drains and filter water flows. Each curb guard is installed using stabilizer arms and counter weight sleeves which are located in the frame and back pocket of the unit. Tie back straps are added if more stabilization is required.

Curb and Inlet Protection Guard Advantages
Inlet Protection Guards are the perfect way to block debris, silt, sediment and various other materials from entering your curb drain. Quick and easy to install, these guards are an easy way to stay in compliance with NPDES, 40 CFR 122.26 (1999) and TMDL requirements.
- Light Weight
- Easy to Install
- Contain Filtering Properties to prevent Pooling or Flooding
When looking for protection along curb gutters, a frequent concern is that the protection guards will block the curb completely and cause pooling or flooding. To prevent this from occurring, inlet drain guards feature overflow ports, filtering material, and lowered exteriors that will allow water to continually flow into the drain.
Drain Markers and Stormwater Sampling kits can be useful assets to BMP's curb protection projects.
