Converted Side Entry

Often when new driveways are built (or existing driveways extended), side entry pits need to be converted into junction pits, while still allowing water to be channelled into the pit. This is accomplished through the installation of a converted side entry grate and frame. As the grate and frame are exposed to vehicular traffic in the street, converted side entry grates and frames are made to Class C of AS3996 – 2006. R&S Grating stock a variety of converted side entry products, in both Class C and Class D of AS3996. In addition to the standard converted side entry, which comprises two grates, we also supply converted side entries with a combination of access covers, grates or checker plates.

How does the converted side entry work?

The existing pit.

Often when new properties are developed, or existing properties modified, an existing side entry pit sits in the way of a new driveway or a driveway extension. This pit is required to effectively manage the channelling of water, and so any modifications must incorporate this pit into the design.

Bullnose or rollover?

Two types of converted side entries are available to suit the two dominant styles or driveway in Melbourne, rollover and bullnose.  A rollover driveway has a smooth "rollover" transition between the driveway and the channel, while a bullnose driveway has a 20mm drop.  The two types are shown in the picture below.  Check your plans or consult your local council inspector to determine which type you require.  Another good indication is checking what your neighbour's driveways have.
