ACO Adds a New Range to Its Stormwater Management System
ACO’s newest addition to the StormBrixx stormwater attenuation and infiltration range will broaden the scope of installation application in the construction industry. ACO StormBrixx SD (Standard Duty) is a general-purpose extension to the patented plastic geocellular system that contains a 914mm high injection-moulded stackable crate design fit for use in a vast range of construction applications.
The previous one, the StormBrixx HD (Heavy Duty), is ideal for Local Authority projects due to its option for integrated man access units, which ease the maintenance requirements assigned by the integrated sustainable urban drainage scheme (SuDS) approval boards and water companies. However, the new SD is more fitted for non-government funded work and ideal for cost-effective storage.
“We have decided to launch a highly competitive extension to the StormBrixx range, which will offer many of the structural and time-saving benefits of the original product, but without certain functions which would be redundant on non-public sector projects,” commented Luke Dekonski, National Manager for Storm Water Control at ACO.
The SD range still includes many of the benefits of the HD StormBrixx system with the advantage that up to 347m3 can be loaded onto a single HGV, reducing the number of vehicles needed, therefore the carbon emissions. It is also one of the strongest systems available with a brick bonded and cross bonding structure made from fully recyclable polypropylene.
It is the perfect solution for the private sector integrated drainage systems, such as schools, housebuilding projects, supermarkets, and carparks, while offering a high void ratio of 97%. This will limit the volume of excavation required to achieve the stated storage capacity and it will reduce both installation time and cost.
The StormBrixx system can be used across all construction environments as an individual solution, or as part of an integrated SuDs. There are additional accessories that can be purchased such as inspection point and pipe connectors and if needed, the system can be configured to minimise silt accumulation so that it can be properly maintained.
