Hickenbottom® inlets can be utilized in a variety of commercial, recreational, agricultural, and municipal applications. Each Hickenbottom® inlet is made of high-density polyethylene insuring the longevity and durability of the product. The bright orange color clearly stands out against any landscape.
All Hickenbottom® inlets, parts, tees, offsets, and risers snap together for installation ease. Risers and inlets may be cut for easy length modification.
Hickenbottom® inlets are available in 5, 6, 8, 10, and 12-inch diameters; and you may choose from 1-inch holes or 1-inch wide slots according to your project’s specifications. A plastic orifice plate may easily be cut to size to provide the required inlet capacity.
The most common applications for Hickenbottom® inlets include:
The Hickenbottom® Silt Sock™ is designed to fit all Hickenbottom® surface inlets, trash guard wire baskets, and bar guard steel coated trash guards. Bright orange Hickenbottom® Silt Sock™ was developed for use in all applications where there are high silt concentrations.
- Parallel Terrace Outlets – Since they are bright orange, free-standing, and durable, Hickenbottom® inlets are easily seen and maintained.
- Low-Spot Surface Inlets – With the Hickenbottom® inlet, the need for gravel fill is eliminated.
- Catch Basins – A silt trap is not needed, because the inlet area is greater than the restricted outlet eliminating suction and trash plug-ups.
- Infiltration Inlet Riser – A special inlet riser may be installed to maintain ponding at a certain level improving water filtration in semi-arid regions.
Hickenbottom® inlets are government approved. Authorized distributors in the United States and Canada have stocks handy for fast delivery to contractors.
