Grate Inlet on Catch Basin - Type 2 (DS-2)

This plan may be used when flows dictate a larger pipe than a normal grate inlet structure can handle. It also works well if there are a number of pipes converging at a location, or when pipes are entering at odd angles. The Unit H of a Grate Inlet Type 2 is grouted directly into a Flat Slab on top for a Catch Basin Type 2. The photo shows this application on a 48" catch basin.

When developed, this former standard plan was the only source of information on the fabrication of access doors. Now, manufactured access doors are readily available and this plan is no longer needed. It is being retained, primarily to provide information when an existing bridge manhole requires repair.
