Hydrocell Data Sheet

Full Description

Our popular and cost-effective soakaway crates (Hydrocell) provide the ideal stormwater management solution.

Helping you meet SUDS requirements

Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) is a vital consideration for all new building developments regardless of size. For example, planning permission now has to be sought for the installation of traditional impermeable surfaces in front gardens (such as driveways, paving) over 5sqm in size. A solution to this is to make the area permeable through the use of permeable paving or asphalt, or by simply installing an effective soakaway system.

Our soakaway crates offer the perfect stormwater management solution – they help prevent flooding during periods of heavy rainfall by holding back excess water and then gently releasing it back into watercourses. This gentle release prevents local sewer networks and watercourses from becoming overwhelmed and flooding.

As well as stormwater attenuation, our soakaway crates can also be used for greywater storage.

Designed to be eco-friendly, our soakaway crates are made from recycled polypropylene and are recyclable at end of use, helping you meet sustainability targets.
