Attenuation for Landscapes

Skeletank for Attenuation in Landscaped Areas

Skeletank ‘Landscaper’ (LDC) Units offer an ideal solution for providing ‘leaky tank’ attenuation below landscaped areas, complemented by our range of modular accessories.

If the attenuation system needs to be sealed then Skeletank Attenuation Units should be used.

 

Landscaped Area Design Utilising Skeletank® Landscaper Units

Skeletank ‘Landscaper’ (LDC) units are pre-formed proprietary soakaway modules, factory encapsulated by 2mm polypropylene mesh, with integral 160mm diameter sockets at each end for ease of connection. Skeletank LDC units can be arranged in numerous configurations to provide an efficient drainage field in landscaped areas, such as lawned gardens and planted areas. Each unit provides 370 litres of storage.

Skeletank LDC units can be utilised to provide a ‘leaky tank’ attenuation system if ground conditions are suitable (a thorough assessment should be made by a qualified structural engineer).

Landscaped Area Design Incorporating Skeletank® Attenuation Units

Skeletank® attenuation units (SELH01001) are unique, pre-formed, high strength, fully sealed attenuation modules which can be utilised to provide shallow storage under trafficked or landscaped areas, either for temporary attenuation or for rainwater recycling.

Skeletank® units (SELH01001 each provide 300 litres of storage and have integral inlets and outlets to connect to standard 100mm diameter pipework. Units can be conjoined in multiple orientations to provide flexibility when meeting required storage volumes in areas where space is restricted.

The high strength of Skeletank® units (SELH01001)  guarantees an ‘off-the-shelf’ watertight structure, without the need for expensive and time-consuming membrane works.

The top of Skeletank® units (SELH01001) is open to allow venting and they are each supplied with a pre-cut sheet of geotextile to prevent the ingress of soil or aggregates.
