BATGuard™ STREET makes it economically feasible for private citizens and business owners to deal with parking lot runoff before it gets to the drains.
If your property drains directly to the STREET or storm drain, like the pictures below, BATGuard™ STREET is an effective BMP to help keep your property in compliance.

What makes the BATGuard™ STREET different from other Faythworx products?
The BATGuard™ STREET is the only product designed for stationary use. The “skin” is rated for longer UV resistance so that it can be used 3-6 months in direct sunlight. It is not designed to be moved repeatedly like the other BATGuard™ products.
BATGuard™ STREET can easily be anchored as needed to the concrete with a cordless drill and stainless anchors to keep them in place on steeper conveyances. It is made at a height that will slow the initial flow to attack the initial oil runoff, yet overflow in emergencies before the parking lot gets flooded.
The majority of contaminants in parking lots are removed during the “first flush”. This is where the BATGuard™ STREET outperforms all other methods of filtration. While no method of filtration can capture all contaminants, the BATGuard™ STREET concentrates on the heavily contaminated FIRST FLUSH that occurs during the first four minutes of rainfall. After the first flush, the initial contaminants have already been captured in the device. It is designed at an optimal height so that cleaner rainfall that comes after the first flush during the flood stage is allowed to overflow.
BATGuard™ STREET has been designed to deal with heavy metals at a higher level than the other BATGuard™ Products. While some oil does come off of parking areas, the greatest concern is heavy metals. The mix of filtration material in the BATGuard™ STREET is made just for parking lot runoff.
Should you need anyone to service your property with a quarterly replacement and a washout of your drains Faythworx is a member of an association with thousands of Power Washing Contractors ready to help you.
The BATGuard™ STREET is designed for continuous, stationary outdoor use for up to three to six months depending on hours of sunshine and rain events. After that time it should be removed and replaced. Preferred disposal is to call your local garbage company and have them pick it up just like used oil for recycling. The BATGuard™ STREET can also be tossed in a dumpster when completely dried.
