Flood damage in the UK is estimated to cost around £1.3 billion every year , with Storm Mathis the latest to usher in flood warnings and power cuts over the Easter period . With this challenge in mind, REHAU and Hydro International have been working in partnership since 2017 to help mitigate this risk year-on-year.
The latest development in this partnership arrives in the form of Stormbloc®, a new innovative stormwater management system designed and built thanks to the two companies’ expertise in the sector.
Stormbloc® is a lightweight, cost-effective geocellular attenuation system, ideal for SuDS (sustainable drainage systems) projects and specifically designed for landscaped areas, or areas with limited traffic loading such residential driveways.
Ben Puddy, Product Manager for Hydro International, comments, “The expansion of the Stormbloc® Optimum range with the launch of Stormbloc® enables use in a wider variety of areas and provides designers with a more cost-effective option, without compromising on functionality and maintenance. We are confident this new offering will allow designers and specifiers the option to use Stormbloc® for green spaces or light trafficked areas.”
