Urban areas have expanses of constructed hard and impervious surfaces like roads, driveways, car parks, roofs and paving. When stormwater run-off flows over these hard surfaces, it readily accumulates pollutants. Stormwater pollutants originate from many different sources including fuel, oil and brake dust on our roads, excess fertilisers, soaps from cleaning and litter.
EnviroKerb can eliminate many of these pollutants from entering the waterways as well as significantly slowing the flow of water to eliminate flooding and the erosion of our rivers and creek systems.
EnviroKerb can be installed as a standalone item in any profile to replace traditional concrete kerb and channel items allowing stormwater to be absorbed and redirected to irrigate newly planted street trees adjacent to roadways and public open spaces.
EnviroKerb will constantly provide treated recycled water to the root ball of the tree keeping the soil moist eliminating the need for potable water being used to on tree watering.
EnviroKerb can be used in conjunction with our Rainsmart Structural Cell Panels creating a below ground detention tank capturing stormwater runoff.
This system detains and treats stormwater by removing sediment and harmful toxins from as well as slowing down the flow rate of the water, thereby drastically reducing down-stream flooding and bank erosion of creeks and waterways. EnvroKerb eliminates the use of side entry treatment.
EnviroKerb is made from a patented permeable concrete formula to form strong, precast pervious concrete kerb products to replace traditional concrete kerb and channel to effectively capture, treat and recycle stormwater on streets, pavements and roadways.
This system complements Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) in the following ways:
EnviroKerb air void ratio creates an interconnecting matrix of aggregate and cement allowing for high volumes of water to pass through.
EnviroKerb has been tested for water flow rates to ASTM1701 and has exceeded an infiltration rate of greater than 35,000mm of water per hour (>550mm per minute).
Pollution control is assisted with sediment removal efficiencies of 82-95%, 65% removal of phosphorous, 80-85% removal of nitrogen, high removal rates of zinc, lead, & chemical oxygen demand.
EnviroKerb is easily maintained using conventional street sweeper vacuum truck methods
EnviroKerb has cast-in lifting points to allow for easy and safe installation and replacement if they become damaged or clogged.
EnviroKerb can be made to measure to suit different council profiles throughout Australia.
EnviroKerb is an environmentally friendly product made from the following sustainable products…
