Application

  • For residential and commercial projects.
  • The performance of a soakaway is dependent on the porosity/infiltration rate of the surrounding subsoil. Installation in heavy clay soil should be avoided. If creating multiple crate soakaways, ensure these are installed in areas that do not receive vehicular traffic.

Description

The CORE Water Crate is used for creating soakaways. The easy-to-assemble crate can be installed beneath gardens, pedestrian areas and driveways with light vehicular traffic.

The crates are a step forward in drainage technology; advancing from the old-fashioned, inefficient soakaways filled with hardcore and building waste, the crate provides a safe and intelligent solution to rainwater management.

The durable and robust crate will help to alleviate flooding by creating a structural void in the ground, it allows water to flow in from surrounding subsoil reducing the build-up of hydrostatic pressure. Water is able to penetrate through the non-woven membrane and collect in the crate, this water will then slowly infiltrate back into the ground at a natural pace.

Features and benefits:

  • Easy to assemble.
  • Infiltration membrane included.
  • Efficient and structurally sound.

Applications:

  • For residential and commercial projects.
