This Brett Martin StormCrate55 is a modular cellar crate system designed to be used as attenuation cells or for soakaway applications. They can be used in trafficked and non-trafficked areas including landscaped, pedestrianised, public open spaces, playgrounds, parking, driveways and access projects. The Storm Crate55 is a well-engineered product for the underground drainage and SUDS industry. This lightweight infiltration system is very strong and easy to install, making it a very attractive alternative cellular attenuation tank or soakaway crate option in the UK. Each Stormcrate55 unit includes 4 connector clips and 2 shear pin connectors with 12 pipe inlets.
Stormcrates are designed to be stacked together easily and quickly creating a below ground stormwater tank, allowing you to store water channelled from surface drains and building guttering with an effective jointing method. Alternatively they can be used as a infiltration and soakaway system. Stormcrate55 can be easily laid in a brick bond pattern, offering a unique approach to water storage solutions allowing contractors and specifiers opportunities to create bespoke designs to suit the exact demands for their projects or developments.
For a soakaway system, it is highly recommended to install your soakaway crates wrapped with a non-woven geotextile or protection fleece. This ensures that you protect the crates from being clogged up by debris, yet still allowing water to pass through. If you are installing an attenuation tank system, in addition to the geotextile you will need to use a geomembrane to ensure the water is retained within the attenuation cells.

Soakaway crate systems enable the surface water to run-off, accumulating in an below ground tank entering the surrounding land through a permeable geotextile or protection fleece. We advise that your groundworker or contractor carries out a percolation test on your soil and its conditions, to correctly calculate the number of crates for your project. As a typical guide, providing your soil type is not clay or heavy, you can roughly estimate the size of your soakaway using a ratio of 1 crate per 10m2 of surface area that you are draining. However we do recommend the correct tests are undertaken prior to designing your soakaway crate system. It you find that your ground conditions are not suitable for a soakaway system, then a holding tank or attenuation system will be required which typically discharges to an existing drain or water course by either gravity or via pumping at a pre-determined rate.
Sustainable Drainage Systems, also referred to as Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems or SuDS, have become a vital asset to prevent urban flooding for various developments across the UK, no matter how big or small. Extensive use of this type of stormwater attenuation/infiltration modules has helped relieve pressure on conventional surface water drainage systems in line with the SUDS program advocated by the environment agency. Stormcrate55 can be utilised in multiple SuDS techniques due to crates systems being perfect for stormwater management solutions. They prevent flooding during heavy rainfall periods by holding back excess water and then gently releasing the water back into the environment. By gently releasing, this prevents local watercourses and sewer networks become overflowed which results in floods being prevented.
