What would you call this?

I need the collective help of the PPRuNe hive mind.
I need to replace the leaf catcher of my garage door storm drain. The problem is I don't know what to call it when searching on the interweb. I've been at it for an hour and nothing comes close despite my efforts.
Thank you in advance.

No joy, but thanks.
Sump trap and sediment pan are the closest hits so far but nothing of the right size and shape.

Is it something like this - https://www.toolstation.com/drain-garage-pack/p13475? If it's what you're after, that's what it is commonly called (although there are other names) in the UK. Hope it helps .

Well, to be honest, when I read your query and saw the photo, that well known engineering term " well and truly f$%ed " came to mind. Sorry.

I think you have misunderstood.
It sits in a trough at the end of a ground level drain guttering. It's to strain the leaves and debris out to stop the soak away drain getting clogged.

Your will be doubt to Imperial and the replacements in metric. Meaning a new channel as well

Has anyone ever tried to replace a cracked cast iron domestic drain cover and all you can get is a different sized galvanised steel ...I have.. ended up replacing the Base as well

G'day Sport

Aco Drain (it's generic like Hoover) and here is a link to there website down under. You might be lucky and find a grating to fit but I suspect you will need to replace the channel as well. Is there anything stamped into the channel to indicate the manufacturer?

https://www.acoself.com.au/

Other brands/flavours available

When faced with an issue like this, my Dad would create a Bodge.
In his (home made/erected) man cave he would bodge something up.
Whilst mine was not really a "storm" drain, - South East UK doesn't really do storms - my bodge was Galvanised wire mesh. Two thicknesses, a closer one on top of a stronger more open one. I made a wooden frame for my particular usage, but I didn't have to. It will need replacing soon!
Seems to work.

Thanks again for all the replies, nothing close yet. I think Ancient Observer may have the right idea.

I'm not sure of the size of your grate, but in Adelaide there was a company that specialised in custom making fireplace grates that presumably rust out fairly frequently. We had one done at a quite reasonable price.
Perhaps there are similar businesses in your neck of the woods.
