Wavin Aquacell Plus

Description

The AquaCell range of geocellular systems are a fully tried and tested, BBA approved, modular technique for managing excessive rainfall.

There are three types of AquaCell unit. Each can be used as a standalone system or different unit types can be mixed and matched together in layers to value engineer the most cost-effective solution.

Properties & applications

The following features are applicable to all AquaCell units:

  • BBA Approved – certificate No. 03/4018 Modular, lightweight and versatile
  • Easy to handle and quick to install
  • Proven clip and peg connection system
  • 95% void (each unit holds 190 litres of water) Can be brick-bonded for extra stability
  • Units can be mixed and matched
  • together for optimum performance
  • Full range of ancillaries
  • Can be used as integral part of a SuDS scheme

In addition, the AquaCell range can also offer the following environmental benefits:

  • Reduced flooding risk
  • Controlled release of stormwater into watercourses or, where permitted, existing sewer systems
  • Recharging of local groundwater (if infiltration/soakaway application)
  • Aerobic purification to improve water run-off quality
  • Sustainable, cost-effective management of the water environment

All AquaCell units have identical dimensions (1m x 0.5m x 0.4m), but they are manufactured to perform differently. The type of unit, or combination of units required will depend on factors such as the load application, overall installation depth and site conditions.

Aquacell Plus-R has been designed primarily for use in applications where inspectability is required, and is suitable for use in all applications from landscaped areas to heavily trafficked areas including HGV.

Range

  • AquaCell Eco
  • AquaCell Core-R
  • AquaCell Plus-R

Material

Polypropylene

Applications

The AquaCell range can be used as either a temporary storage tank or as a soakaway, and is suitable for applications including:

  • Landscaped areas
  • Parks
  • Domestic gardens Residential developments Car parks & roads Industrial/commercial areas
  • AquaCell Plus-R has been designed primarily for use in applications where inspection is required. It is suitable for use in all applications from landscaped areas to heavily trafficked areas (for vehicles up to 44 tonnes). The units can be used in combination with AquaCell Core-R (and Eco if there is at least one layer of Core-R in between the Plus-R and Eco layer).
  • Typically for use down to depths of 7.82m in landscaped areas (7.57m trafficked by cars and 7.3m trafficked by HGV’s) to the base of the units from ground level, in best soil conditions. Trafficking by heavy construction plant on site, including mechanical equipment, must be avoided until the minimum cover depth of 1.30 metres is in place.

Features & benefits

  • Suitable for extra deep installations
  • Inspectable (supplied with end cap for use when an inspection channel is not required)
  • Proven vertical loading capacity of: 70.2 tonnes/m2 (702 kN/m2)
  • Proven lateral loading capacity of: 15.1 tonnes/m2 (151 kN/m2)

Standards & approvals

BBA Approved
