Polystorm-R modular geocellular structures are used for the control and management of surface water in trafficked applications and at a variety of burial depths.

They are designed to withstand vertical loads of up to 61 tonnes/m2.

Polystorm-R is lightweight, easy to handle and install.

Application

Polystorm Xtra can be used for surface water retention and surface water attenuation or surface water infiltration with a suitable geomembrane or geotextile.

Performance

  • Up to 60-year design life
  • Compressive strength up to 61 tonnes/m²
  • 95% void ratio for high storage capacity and lower excavation and disposal costs
