SDS’s original product GEOlight® was designed and engineered to protect CSOs and saturated land from overloading due to extreme rainfall. Unlike the antiquated drainage systems that many of our cities and towns are equipped with, our geocellular storage tank systems are designed to accept substantial and rapid influx of surface water, retaining this excess water until such time as it can be safely released.
To avoid the potential for flooding, stormwater should be removed quickly and efficiently.
A unique geocellular system that’s widely recognised as the UK’s market leading water storage and attenuation / infiltration system. It has been specifically engineered to form underground water storage reservoirs in stormwater management schemes.
Weholite pipes are made from high density polyethylene – HDPE – and represent a significant contribution in the development of thermoplastic structured wall pipe systems.
With a storage volume of over 96%, Rigofill® can accommodate up to three times the amount of water that gravel swales can. Their cross-shaped inspection tunnel allows the content to be monitored simply and accurately, and to be flushed out as may be required in four dimensions.
In “hybrid” storm management systems SDS engineered water storage and treatment devices below-ground combine with, enhance the performance and extend the lifespan of vegetative SuDS materials above-ground. Allied to SDS SYMBiotIC™ smart monitoring and control these devices protect nature-based solutions from the impacts of excessive or insufficient rainfall.
GEOlight® working with Weholite
SDS GEOlight® and Weholite storage and conveyance devices work together to ensure surface water is managed efficiently and effectively, from its point of ingress into the SuDS system to its final release. Weholite manholes also provide a suitable location in which to house SDS SYMBiotIC™ smart monitoring and control devices.
