Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SuDS) have emerged as the best way to address storm flows and flooding from sealed surfaces. The BMS Stormbreaker is a world-leading solution for the attenuation, infiltration, soakaway & storage of surface water due to rainfall. It was developed as the result of an extensive R&D program and close collaboration with industry practitioners.
Recognising the need to develop a water attenuation system, which is affordable and of the highest quality in order to service this expanding market, BMS are pleased to introduce the Stormbreaker.
The Stormbreaker, when combined with our existing surface water products, leaves us with the unique capability of supplying a complete ‘one stop shop’ for all water attenuation, infiltration & storage requirements from to design to installation of a customised solution.
The Stormbreaker can be used for attenuation, infiltration, as a soakaway, under permeable paving, as underground drainage tanks, as a rainwater storage solution or as part of a blue roof system. Both permeable or impermeable systems are available.
There are many plastic attenuation systems on the market, so what makes the Stormbreaker different?
Its main point of difference is its immense strength;
Its certified vertical loading is 756 kN/m2. BMS have observed vertical loading in excess of 900 kN/m2 in product quality testing.
To demonstrate the Stormbreaker’s strength BMS commissioned a video where a 18 tonne fire truck is driven over a Stormbreaker installation with only 130 mm of cover in the form of sand and paving brick.
The video shows that the Stormbreaker does not move vertically or laterally or suffer any kind of structural damage despite the 18 tonne load and only 130 mm of cover.
