Atlantis tank - disposable formworks for rainwater collection tanks sector - Water and Wastewater - Stormwater
Thanks to its modularity, manoeuvrability, ease of installation and large vertical accumulation capacity, Atlantis is the ideal tool for creating large volume tanks at extremely low costs.
Its spherical vaulted structure provides the concrete casting with considerable resistance with less thickness so that the outside of the tank can be used as a surface for a parking lot (ex.: the IKEA parking lot in Amsterdam) or for sports facilities (ex.: tennis courts, football fields etc.). The same principle can also be applied to residential building, both for individual homes or in the case of parcelling. It is possible in fact to prepare suitable volumes to be covered with Atlantis formworks, which will be subsequently filled with the rainwater collected by the building’s rainwater draining system. The volume of collected water can be used for all applications that do not require potable water, such as for flushing the wc, for the washing machine, watering the garden, fire extinguishing pumps, etc. The tank must be made waterproof and have an overflow valve installed.
Tank maintenance is made possible by the large walkable spaces inside the tank, created through the combined use of the Atlantis system and the Beton Up accessory.
A large distance between the columns can be obtained with the use of Atlantis 100%.
The implemented tank can be loaded directly on the concrete layer or be positioned underground to create an asphalted parking lot or a green area on the surface.
In the private sector 50% of our daily water need could be replaced by rainwater:
- for irrigation (promotes optimal mineral absorption);
- for the washing machine and house cleaning (rainwater does not promote the formation of limescale);
- for flushing the wc;
- for washing the car
- obviously at no cost for its use.
Rainwater can also be used in the industrial sector (factories, offices) in productive cooling, washing, rinsing processes and any other non-food process as well as for fire extinguishing systems using accumulation tanks.
