    Flow Controls Dedicated to SuDS

    Controflow® control chambers are specifically designed for shallow SuDS elements to manage rainwater runoff, including permeable pavements, swales and basins. They feature orifices, guarded where necessary, which are accessible for demonstrating straightforward compliance to local authorities as part of the SuDS design approval process. A universal stainless steel mesh SuDS Basket, for filling with stone, acts as an attractive pipe inlet or outlet within landscaped SuDS features.

    Why we need flow controls

    The key to successful SuDS is water storage strategically deployed around a site within SuDS elements – such as swales, basins ponds and, particularly, permeable paving – forming discrete sub-catchments with flow controls.


    How orifice flow controls work

    The Controflow® orifice design is based on well-established flow rate performance characteristics using the standard orifice equation.


    Controflow improves permeable paving

    Controflow® control chambers can transform the multifunctionality of permeable pavements enabling them to be used for demonstrable water storage in sub-catchments around a scheme and to maximise storage on sloping sites.
