Utilize the sump

The two function of catchbasins are to:

a) Remove water off the streets and into the infrastructure below grade.

b) Hold pollution in their sump

 

Unfortunately, most things caught in the sump can easily be stirred up and washed downstream.

What is a SHIELD?

CB Shield is a catch basin insert. As the name suggests, it shields the sediment and grit found in the sump of the catchbasin from being washed out.

HOW DOES IT

WORK?

CB Shield inserts are placed into catchbasins to prevent scour. The top slope of the shield deflects the flow of water to the back wall of the catchbasin while the grates allow water to flow over the top and exit the outlet pipe. Sediment falls between the slots.

WATER QUALITY

  • Help reduce scouring up to 92% less and capture 50% TSS

  • A CB Shield will allow the sump to fill completely due to its superior scour protection.

(This was demonstrated in third party testing)

Workable

  • A shield will not restrict waterflow as it exits the catch basin outlet pipe (tested up to 60L/s with no scour)

  • Shields are easy to maintain, and take under a minute to remove and reinstall

CB Shield is small but mighty capturing 50% tss on an average site.

NEW CONSTRUCTION

CB shield can be installed in a variety of sump depths using an adjustable leg for height. For new catchbasins you might consider a 1200mm sump for greater storage capacity.

DURING

CONSTRUCTION

CB Shield helps control heavy sediment runoff during construction.

And won't plug up like filter cloth. It can then stay in the catchbasin post construction or be reinstalled at the next jobsite.

EXISTING SITE

CB Shield is easily installed in an existing catchbasin in less than two minutes. This can be a huge savings on retrofitting established infrastructure.

PART OF TREATMENT TRAIN

CB shield can help pre treat an LID system or a filter system.

Adding a CB Shield to your treatment train can help you reach your 80% TSS removal.

ETV Verified

CB Shield has been third party tested to help prove that we are what we say we are. We tested to reduce scour 92% with 50% TSS removal.
