The ACO SuDS Swale Inlet unit is an aesthetically pleasing solution for drainage applications where proprietary conveyance systems are linked to vegetated infiltration features such as swales, basins, ponds and water courses. 

The ACO SuDS Swale Inlet can be integrated into any SuDS drainage scheme where there is a requirement to manage water on or near the surface, helping to manage surface water at its source.

The low profile unit provides a natural looking interface complementing the surrounding environment.

The consistent product appearance makes the product ideal for phased or retrofit installation, and the 1 in 3 gradient profile can be used to help construct swales to satisfy the CIRIA C697 guidance (Design Criteria for Swales).

The surface finish and the flared outlet of the unit encourages water dispersion and reduces excessive flow velocities, helping to protect the surrounding environment from erosion and meeting the flow rate guidance in CIRIA C697. The ACO SuDS Swale Inlet will reduce the velocity and distribute the flow across a footprint up to 6 times that of a traditionally constructed pipe outfall.

Installation

The one-piece unit is placed into position and can be installed using concrete bedding or, alternatively secured with spiral ground anchors.

No additional on-site shuttering or formwork is required, removing the need to return to site and ensuring the final stages of a project can be concluded quickly and without hassle.

Manufacture

Manufactured from Vienite, a proprietary high-strength sustainable material.

Benefits

  • Offers greater durability when compared to traditional materials which can deteriorate
  • Allows virtually no water absorptions providing protection against frost and freeze-thaw, thus maintaining the long term performance of the unit

Options

  • Colour: natural, grey and black.
  • Textured finished can also applied
  • Optional stainless steel grating for greater protection
