The distinction that the Ultra-Basin Guard has from other products is its tall profile. Needless to say, a drain protection product that sits 18″ above the grate is not suitable for many applications. But in some situations (usually construction-related), it is advantageous.
The geotextile material used for the Ultra-Basin Guard is the same as we use in the Ultra-Drain Guard and other stormwater products so the oil/silt/sediment containment capacities are the same. But the taller profile provides additional “above the drain” filtering as well as a quick visual identifier of the storm drain’s location.
