The patented fastening system for these grate covers lies flat and remains low-profile so it won't interfere with foot traffic, vehicles, and street sweepers.

Taurus Over Grate Drain Cover Details

Available in high visibility (blaze orange for safety), low visibility, and with or without the raised overflow window. This rugged over grate drain filter is made of geotextile material that keeps debris and sediment out of storm drains and waterways, while combining a street-sweeper friendly surface with good drainage filtration. The Taurus Over Drain Filter is constructed from 10% Monofiliment with an Apparent Opening Size (AOS) of 40 US Std. Sieve. The overflow window is constructed from bi-planar diamond mesh (45% open area, hole size of 0.094 x 0.094). Our design is covered under U.S. Patent No. 10,053,383 B2. Round over grate filters are also available.

Overflow Window

Overflow WindowTaurus's overflow window (optional), is fully surrounded by a supported, raised ridge.

This window minimizes puddling by facilitating a faster flow through rate of stormwater into the catch basin, but the window is only engaged when the stormwater exceeds the height of the ridge.

With the Taurus Over Grate Drain Filter, you can:

  • More effectively comply with government regulations on drain sites no larger than an acre.
  • Keep silt, sand, and mid-sized debris out of stormwater grates.
  • Add extra layers that contain flocculants, absorbents, and other media for water treatment.
  • Keep over-grate protection in place longer with durable materials.
  • Control mosquitoes and storm drain insects without chemicals

The dual-filter design is manufactured with strong filtration fabrics and metallic mesh, giving the Over Grate Drain Filter superior durability, as well as effective stormwater filtration. A sediment ridge around the perimeter promotes settling of suspended particles in the water. These storm drain grate covers are well-suited to work areas and parking lots. Additionally, the Taurus Over Grate Filter is a non-chemical fly control product that can help control mosquitoes without chemicals.
