How a new standard in accessibility enhances stormwater management
London’s Flood Expo 2016 (October 12th & 13th) is the largest event of its kind to present solutions to the epic flooding problems plaguing the world over. Industry leaders in flood prevention showcase the latest, cost-effective and efficient ways to prevent and manage floods. Our innovative, modular storm system – Q-Bic Plus – breaks all the rules. For all the right reasons.
Q-Bic Plus, the next generation in stormwater management
We have a history of innovations that have raised the bar in the design and production of plastic pipe systems and solutions. Our AquaCell stormwater infiltration units, for example, answered the growing demand to handle peak rainfall and masterfully control rainwater discharge by directing it into the surrounding soil.
Q-Bic Plus is our next generation system. It offers significantly enhanced design freedom, easy and speedy installation and seamless access for inspection, cleaning and maintenance.
When the rise in heavy flooding hits the headlines this rainy season and the question “Are we doing enough?” is asked, our response will be, “Not just enough. Much, much more.”
Flood prevention - a number one priority
Winter is approaching, bringing with it the inevitable heavy rains that have become an annual event in recent years (request a copy of our whitepaper on last year’s flooding here) – not only in the UK, but across Europe.
In the UK, the Government has invested heavily in flood protection schemes across the country, which is a start. However, floods take an emotional toll on individual homeowners and small businesses. In many cases, flood damage can be devastating. Plus, the financial cost for restoration is huge, regardless of whether it’s a single family home, an apartment building or a large commercial establishment.
That’s why we take stormwater management seriously and have developed a system that takes flood prevention to the next level.
Q-Bic Plus rewrites the rule book of geocellular stormwater management systems
So, why is Q-Bic Plus the ideal stormwater solution for urban housing developments and commercial infrastucure projects?
Martin Lambley, Product Manager – Foul, Utilities and Water Management:
”Q-Bic Plus opens up a real opportunity for modular plastic geocellular systems to be adopted as part of the development drainage scheme. Its open structure allows real, workable access for inspection and maintenance, something which historically has been a barrier to such systems being considered for adoption.”
Modularity is key in stormwater management
Modularisation helps with configurability, making Q-Bic Plus suitable for a wide range of applications, from small domestic developments to the largest commercial applications. The integrated push-fit connectors help speed up the system’s installation by up to 50%, thus reducing the overall cost, and the lightweight nature of the system adds to the seamless installation.
Modularisation has become the buzzword among developers and architects. With Q-Bic Plus, we have paved the way for a buzzword to become an industry standard.
