Drainage Cells

A perfect solution for a subsoil drainage application

EcoRain/Eco-rainwater® Drainage Cell Systems, available in 20, 25, 30 and 50mm, provide a perfect solution for a subsoil drainage application which can also be used to create a successful roof garden.

EcoRain/Eco-rainwater® Drainage Cells provide a uniform surface as well as an internal void space for effective draining of excess water for vertical or horizontal applications. These cells have a shallow and effective drainage profile and ensure landscapers can make full use of mature plants on roof gardens which need soil depth and water retention properties.

The EcoRain/Eco-rainwater Drainage Cells are made from recycled Polypropylene, which is inert to soil-borne chemicals and bacteria.

Features at a glance
