GEOlight Design Details
These details illustrate the construction of a typical GEOlightŪ Stormwater Attenuation System. The length and height of the GEOlightŪ reservoirs is determined by the quantity water to be stored.
The layout of each scheme is specifically designed to suit the characteristics and limitation of the site. Typically the distributor pipe would be arranged in the centre of the reservoir, but can alternatively be placed at the side where topographical constraints dictate.
The high performance waterproof membrane should be sealed continuously to encapsulate the GEOlightŪ reservoirs, distributor pipe and granular fill. It is protected by a heavyweight needle punched, non woven geotextile. To help with maintenance a high flow geotextile is place between the granular fill and GEOlightŪ attenuation units to prevent silt and particles being washed into the reservoir. GEOlightŪ can be used under a range of surfaces e.g. grass, porous paving, standard paving block, tarmac and concrete.
