Flood risk calls for new Stormcrate55
Brett Martin has provided the answer to managing heavy rainfall with the launch of StormCrate55, an underground modular geocellular unit which is proven as a cost-effective solution to surface water run-off in a wide range of below ground applications.
Faced with rising costs and stricter deadlines, modularisation is growing in popularity as contractors look to find the next generation of efficient and economical products and systems. Due to the numerous benefits both on and off site, underground modular geocellular units such as the new StormCrate55 will become an increasingly popular choice for merchants and their customers.
Manufactured from 100% recycled plastic at Brett Martin’s factory in Northern Ireland, StormCrate55 has a high void ratio of 95% which means that the units are highly efficient at storing up to 237.5 litres of water in the event of heavy rains. The units are suitable for installation in landscaped areas, pedestrianised spaces, playgrounds, parking areas, driveways and access zones.
“The UK has experienced some of the worst floods on record in previous years, and will continue to do so, which is why engineered Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) such as StormCrate55 can provide effective flood protection for both the short and long term,” commented Paul Grills, Technical Manager. “StormCrate55 is simple and quick to install and due to its high strength, it can be used for both pedestrianised and trafficked applications.”
StormCrate55 can be wrapped in a geotextile which allows stored water to slowly seep into the surrounding ground and back into the water table. Another common practice is to surround StormCrate55 with an impermeable geomembrane to create a sealed underground tank. The outlet from this tank is then controlled to facilitate a slow release of the stored water back into the drainage system over a longer period.
Available for delivery to site with a fast 2-3 day lead time, StormCrate55 is seen as one way of addressing the problem of flooding and avoiding using an overloaded sewer system.
All of Brett Martin’s products are underpinned by exceptional sales and technical support, ensuring that every merchant is guaranteed the highest quality of service.
