All You Need to Know About our Backflow Covers At Your Fingertips

Backflow prevention is not at the forefront of most design engineers' minds as this is a small component of the overall project design. Our aim is to make it both simple and painless to design the best backflow prevention system possible - including protection for the device. According to many of the designers we've worked with across the country, our website does exactly that. Not only do we provide a sizing guide which allows you to find the right backflow covers for your devices based on specifications such as valve type and pipe size, our product pages are also full of useful information to help with your design.


At a Glance

The first thing you'll notice is the image of your selected enclosure model. There are 54 to choose from on our backflow preventer cover products page and each one includes an image of the cover. Next to this image are the basic specs. You can easily find the dimensions, weight, heat, and pricing for each of our standard model industrial enclosures. Below the image is a brief description of the product. Listed there is the number of removable panels, doors, drain flap and more. You can also see if the selected enclosure is one of a series and if you can get it in a different size. This is handy if you need to provide vandal and freeze protection for multiple backflow preventers on a job site. For instance, the 200SN is part of the SN series. The SN series can house backflow preventers from .75" to 8" diameters.200sn_backflow_enclosures_product_page.jpg

Digging Deeper

Having all of the basic details of every product on one page makes finding the right backflow covers incredibly easy. However, we didn't want to stop there. We know that you're going to need specifactions, submittals, and more as well. So we uploaded all of those options for each model. Additionally, we've provided instructions for assembly in case you need to know what is required beforehand, or if you need to print an extra copy. There is also a standard drawing for each model. You can double check that this backflow cover is the right one for your equipment by clicking on the link that says "Confirm fit with your Equipment." See an example of a drawing and submittal below.
