The Q-Bic Plus geocellular system has been uniquely engineered to combine ease of access and speed of installation. The system is a fully BBA approved, modular SuDS technique for managing stormwater.
The Q-Bic Plus system can be used either as a temporary storage tank or a soakaway, particularly where accessibility into the tank is required. It is suitable for a wide range of landscaped and trafficked applications, including:
Car parks & roads
Infiltration or attenuation?
The Q-Bic Plus range can be used either as:
A soakaway (when using the Perforated Base Plate) whereby the units will be installed in suitable pervious soils so the units can be wrapped in a geotextile to allow infiltration of the stormwater into the surrounding ground, or
As an attenuation tank (when using the Solid Base Plate) in impervious ground (e.g. clay) where infiltration is not possible, here the units are wrapped in a geomembrane (which is in turn wrapped in a protective geotextile layer) so that the structure can hold the stormwater temporarily until local drainage flows can accept it for normal disposal at a permissible outflow rate
