Protect drains and inlets WITHOUT lifting any grates
If speed of installation and convenience top the list of features you are looking for in a stormwater product, then the Ultra-Inlet Guard should be a serious consideration.
Heavy-duty geotextile material effectively removes oil and sediment from rainfall. And strong, rare earth magnets sewn into each corner make installation quick and easy.

Why would I use the Ultra-Inlet Guard instead of one of your other stormwater management products?
The Ultra-Inlet Guard is one of, if not, the easiest stormwater management products to install. No grates to lift, no fabric to pinch, no cutting necessary. Simply line it up with the grating and lay it on top. The magnets do all the work.
In addition to the ease of installation, the fact that the unit lays on top of the drain means that clean up (dirt/sediment/trash/debris removal) is as simple as sweeping off the surface. The grate doesn't have to be lifted or removed because everything is kept at street level.
Why WOULDN'T I use the Ultra-Inlet Guard instead of one of your other stormwater management products?
The Ultra-Inlet Guard and Inlet Guard Plus are held in place by magnets. These are exceptionally strong magnets and more than enough to keep the unit in place under normal circumstances. However, unlike products that are installed under the grating, the Inlet Guard is more susceptible to damage from street sweepers and to theft/vandalism.
Also, because the units are held in place by magnets at each corner, the Ultra-Inlet Guard and Inlet Guard Plus are not a "one size fits all" type of product. Some of UltraTech's stormwater management products can be trimmed/cut to fit the drain but the Inlet Guard must match the drain dimensions very closely in order for it to be effective.
What's the difference between the Ultra-Inlet Guard and the Ultra-Inlet Guard Plus?
The only difference in the two models is that the Plus Models have an overflow port that will allow untreated water to pass through in the case of excessive rainfall in order to prevent flooding/ponding.
How many magnets are used in each Ultra-Inlet Guard?
The 24" x 24" and 24" x 36" size have four magnets each, one in each corner. The 24" x 48" size has six magnets, four in each corner and one centered on both of the 48" sides.
Are the magnets removable/replaceable?
No, the magnets are sewn into the material and cannot be removed without damaging the Inlet Guard.
