Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) is designed to reduce the potential impact of new and existing developments with respect to surface water drainage discharges. The idea behind SuDS is to try to replicate natural systems that use cost effective solutions with low environmental impact to drain away dirty and surface water run-off through collection, storage, and cleaning before allowing it to be released slowly back into the environment, such as into water courses.
SuDS compliant Flooring is a resin bound aggregate surface for pedestrian and vehicular traffic. These surfaces are decorative and functional, seamless and slightly flexible.
The open matrix allows water to drain through to the base, eliminating water ponding and allowing water to drain to planted areas or land drains. The surfacing may be applied to SuDS compliant bases and sub-bases, reducing the impact of urban development on flood risk and allowing water to flow into water courses. Edgings created from brick, stone, timber or steel should be installed to retain and protect the resin bound surfacing.
