Looking for an easy to install sub-base?
Also known as ground reinforcement, SureCell® is our own cellular grid structure sub-base made from 100% recycled plastic.
Features of SureCell:
Just three layers to a fully permeable surface solution…
From the top down there are three layers to a fully permeable surface - each one an integral part of the reinforcement and filtration system:
First (top) layer
10mm SureSet (SuDS mix) installed @ 30mm depth.
SureCell infilled with gravel – suitable for pedestrian and vehicular traffic. For heavy use another layer of SureCell is added.
After the removal of vegetation and debris to create a level and compacted sub-grade, a geo-textile membrane layer is laid to prevent the upward migration of fine soil particles.
Alternative top layers: SureCell can also be infilled with plants and/or grass – providing protection for vegetation, natural drainage and softening the look of a space – or crushed rock or gravel – providing a strong base suitable for pedestrian and light vehicular traffic.
Environmental benefits of SureCell:
Made from 100% recycled material (HDPE), grid structures create a fully permeable reinforced stable base, without the need for a cementitious or bitumen based products. HDPE is inert and stable, with an expected lifespan of over 50 years.
CIRIA, the leading body in SuDS research, states that a permeable surface can remove 60-95% of suspended solids and 70-90% of hydrocarbons.
With a grid structure being built-up rather than excavated down, the no dig situation eliminates potential damage to trees and plants.
No digging and reducing the amount and type of infill a grid structure requires, reduces the need for heavy machinery. This has a knock on effect on pollution and the carbon footprint and minimizes on-site disruption from dust, erosion and runoff.
The long-term design life of grid structures mean that maintenance, associated environmental and long-term environmental costs are significantly reduced.
