54 x 2500L Underground Tanks with Hydraulic Uplift Restraint Anchors

Previous Next

Who: Barrett Homes Tauranga

Products: 54 x 2500L Underground Tanks with Hydraulic Uplift Restraint Anchors

Where: Tauranga

Why: A new 18 infill home subdivision, required on-site Stormwater Detention tanks because of high demand on the storm water system.

What: Promax was able to help Barrett Homes to design a system to work within a very tight footprint, as there was little space between the piles of the homes. This approach enabled houses to proceed through council approvals quickly and also overcame the high water-table thanks to the Promax uplift anchor system.

Where there is high ground water (as there was in this case) the uplift restraints overcome the natural buoyancy of the tanks, anchoring them safely.
