DRAINMAX tunnel trench

The solution for decentralized infiltration or attenuation of stormwater and treated wastewater. The DRAINMAX tunnel trench is a lightweight in its class. It allows rainwater to be easily retained or infiltrated on site. The ideal solution for sealed surfaces.

The DIBt®-approval is one innovation of the DRAINMAX tunnel system. It is  with 1.6 m³ a large volume and light plastic tray system that creates a hollow space in the soil. With these, the rain water can be directly retained at the source and will infiltrate through the open soil and side holes. It is possible to also restrict the water flow  to only the pipe. This technology saves significant costs on laying complex piping systems. You can also use the DRAINMAX tunnel system for infiltration of effluent water from sewage plants.
