Each half body consists of eight pillars, four male and four female. When installing the half bodies next to each other, (ready for brickbonding), units should be matched to one another.
If the half body finishes with a female connection, the next half body should start with a female connection.
This will then allow a further half body piece to be placed on top, bridging the two units, and securely locking the system together.
Cutting the tank body
The half body can be cut along the central rib using a handsaw or jigsaw. Each cut piece can be linked to the rest of the system using connectors. Cut surfaces must face into the centre of the tank system to allow side panels to be attached.
The basic elements consist of eight columns, of which four are equipped with spigots and four with sockets.
They are easily asesmbled by plugging together the individual components. The basic elements are assembled with interlocking to optimise the positional safety of the overall system. To achieve this, four push-fit connection must be positioned next to each other.
Concentric ring layout
This is a series of rings, which become increasingly smaller as they approach the middle of the system.
- Set out the outlines of the system and level the base of the excavation and lay a levelling layer of sand (H = 5cm) to form the formation.
- Lay geotextile (filter non-woven) and/or waterproof membrane if necessary.
- Set the out perimeter of the infiltration system with basic elements.
Principle: Two ACO StormBrixx basic elements are placed on the ground. A third basic element is turned upside down and is laid on the first two elements in a block bond.
- If necessary, but half-basic elements to size
- Repeat steps for all other layers.
- Connect together the two individual layers with the help of the connectors
- For large systems (larger than 100m3) we recommend starting the installation from a corner, an end or a side. at the same time, begin assembling the inner rings.
If necessary, connect existing rings and layers with the help of connectors.
