Technical stormwater attenuation
Natural stormwater infiltration needs uncovered surfaces. The growing number of sealed surfaces increases the risk of flooding and/or poor waste water treatment. One means to prevent those risks are technical infiltration systems like GEOdek® infiltration boxes. During the storm, they collect the water below the covered ground and release it later into the sewage drains.
GEOdek® boxes are available in 7 standard strength types. Their combination in single or multi-layer systems offers a great flexibility to cover all requirements with regard to type of traffic load and earth coverage.
Our GEOdek® design program helps our customers to easily choose the appropriate type, allowing economically and ecologically-friendly realization of their projects.
In addition to in-house tests, the quality and strength of the GEOdek® boxes is independently tested by external institutes like TÜV.
GEOdek® can as well be used for
- Rainwater harvesting
Rainwater harvesting systems with GEOdek® resemble attenuation systems. Tanks can be built without concrete or steel surrounds. An impermeable membrane around the fill structure prevents infiltration.
- Infiltration of treated effluents
For the infiltration of treated effluent from medium and small waste water treatment plants GEOdek® boxes can be used as well.
