  • High resistance to chemical and biological attack
  • Lightweight compared to cement concrete products
  • Excellent noise and vibration absorption
  • Excellent dielectric properties
  • Good weathering and UV resistance
  • Zero water absorption
  • Can be cut with masonry drills and grinders
  • Can be recycled as rubble or crushed for use as road foundation
  • Approximately 4 times the flexural strength of cement concrete
  • Good thermal properties and stability
  • Ultra-smooth finish which encourages efficient hydraulic flow
Stormwater drainage pit and junction pit

A pit that collects rainwater or excess water is called a stormwater or drainage pit.

Drainage pit is a rectangular box with a drainage grate in the ground that collect water and discharge the water trough drainage pip to the nearest council stormwater discharge point. Stormwater pit relies on gravity to collect water on site. Usually the site will have a fall e.g 1:100 to the pit. This method of drainage is called point drain.
