Hydrorock - Model D-HD - Rainwater Drainage and Buffer System
Hydrorock* infiltration blocks drain and buffer surface water and rainwater in an environmentally friendly way. This unique natural material absorbs excess surface and rainwater with a capacity of 90% of its volume. The filter cloth ensures gradual infiltration into the surrounding soil.
EFFICIENT RAINWATER BUFFER
Hydrorock* is a new type of rainwater buffer that stores more rain and groundwater but requires less digging. As a result, Hydrorock blocks offer more water absorption and more efficient infiltration and drainage.
- Drainage to prevent flooding on heavy load-bearing pavings, in gardens and around buildings and sports fields.
- Ideal for drainage and infiltration of rainwater in houses with thatched roofs.
- Prevents flooding in rural areas.
- Local rainwater buffering and drainage. Supplements groundwater in a natural way.
ESPECIALLY FOR HEAVY LOAD-BEARING AREAS
Hydrorock' High Density (HD) blocks are designed for heavy load-bearing areas and can be loaded up to a maximum of 4000 kg/m2. The HD-blocks have a dense fibre structure in one direction that determine the compressive strength. To serve this heavy load-bearing capacity the HD blocks therefore need always to be placed in a standing position.
Hydrorock* is made of stone wool, a 100% natural material. It remains underground for decades in an optimum condition. Standard plastic buffers are liable to surface damage and have to be replaced. Hydrorock' withstands erosion from plant and tree roots and continues to work well for years. The cotton-based filter cloth membrane does not get mouldy or rot. It has a high breaking strength and resists natural substances in the soil.
