Sustainable Urban Drainage systems
Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS) are innovative and eco-friendly approaches to managing rainwater and runoff in urban areas. These systems aim to mimic natural water processes, helping to reduce flooding, improve water quality, and enhance overall urban environmental sustainability.
Our systems enable contractors to achieve their obligations under building regulations (H) more cost effectively than using alternative solutions. Our systems also provide the additional benefits of developing green spaces for residents.
Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS) are designed to mimic nature and typically manage rainfall close to where it drops. The systems are considered to be environmentally beneficial, causing minimal or no long-term detrimental damage.
We have tailored a range of Geosynthetic products specifically aimed at promoting and prolonging SUDS.
Often the most efficient and effective method of control is by installing infiltration and/or attenuation tanks, which act as slow-release reservoirs for surface water run-off.
Our range of products to reduce the impact of unwanted extreme weather conditions includes water management systems, attenuation tanks – which act as slow-release reservoirs for surface water run-off – and SUDS-compliant permeable paving.
We also offer pond liners, which include prefabricated membranes and geosynthetic clay liners (GCLs), as well as bespoke headwall furniture such as grills, handrails and safety chains. Our woven and non-woven geotextiles – more simply described as protection fleeces – are a popular solution that protect attenuation tanks and stop problematic cases of impermeable membranes becoming punctured.
Choosing a complete system from a single, trusted supplier – like Wrekin – helps to ensure an effective and sustainable drainage solution across the whole project.
MultiTrack non woven geotextiles have been designed and developed to offer optimum performance per unit weight. Their resulting mechanical robustness and excellent hydraulic properties make them the ideal choice for applications requiring separation and filtration.
FasTrack is a market leading brand of woven geotextile fabrics, manufactured using a range of different polymers, strengths and weave patterns.
Our range of high quality impermeable geomembranes are manufactured to the highest standards. We offer a variety of roll sizes for each of the different materials to match individual site requirements.
Geosynthetic clay liners
Mechanically bonded geosynthetic clay liner composite of pulverised bentonite embedded between two layers of geotextile. Additional bentonite is added to the overlap edges for ease of sealing.
Our bespoke steel solutions include headwall furniture, grills, handrails, ladders, step irons and safety chains.
Ornamental Pond at Fallow Park housing development
Fallow Park is an exclusive housing development on the outskirts of Cannock. The rural setting of the development and close proximity to Hawks Green Nature Reserve influenced the design and installation of shared recreation areas on the site.
A 1400m2 ornamental pond with green space was designed to enhance the development and provide a habitat for a variety of wildlife.The ground conditions and nature of the finished pond meant that an impermeable membrane would be required to line the pond.
