Rainsmart Shallow Soakaway Flat Packed 1 Cubic Metre Set

Product Code: 90003F

If you have a higher than average water table or you simply don't want to dig out a deep excavation, consider our shallow soakaway options. The crates that make up this set are only 440mm deep yet they still have a 24-tonne vertical load capacity, this means that even allowing for a sand base and 300-500mm of backfill the soakaway depth is only 890mm deep (1090mm if under a driveway).

These sets are comprised of eight Rainsmart Ellipse Single Soakaway Crates (24.2-tonne vertical load capacity) and sufficient non-woven geotextile membrane to wrap all outward faces of the soakaway including the base. Each set also includes cable ties for holding the shallow soakaway crates together until the side fill has been introduced and a rubber mallet for assembling the crates.

Load Rating

Rainsmart soakaway crates have a void ratio of 95% - this is the amount of free space within the crate structure that can be used for rainwater storage. The capacity of both of these 1 cubic metre shallow soakaways is an industry-leading 955 Litres. Under normal conditions, this would be sufficient to hold water from a roof area of approximately 50 square metres.

shallow soakaway crates have a vertical load capacity of over 24 tonnes per square metre enables Rainsmart crates to be installed beneath gardens and pedestrian areas. The lateral (side) crush load of 18 tonnes per square metre is currently unrivalled by any other crate available in the UK.

All outward-facing shallow soakaway crates surfaces of any soakaway should be wrapped in non-woven geotextile membrane, which enables water to flow into the soakaway but stops any surrounding soil or sand particles from entering.

Joining Crates

Our cubic metre sets all include cable ties for holding the shallow soakaway crates in position while the side fill is poured into the hole. Please note though that no ties or clips on any soakaway crate systems are structural, it is the sand base and the crucial sand or gravel side fill which holds the whole installation correctly in position.
