Already transforming water management in Holland, Hydrorock’s unique Natural Aquifer SuDS system prevents onsite flooding and drought. Made up of natural Aquifer Blocks which together form a decentralised water management system, replicating the natural water cycle by allowing the necessary buffering, absorbency, infiltration and retention of excess water.
Developed by Rockwool, this highly innovative system is made from a natural process using 100% mineral wool. Molten Basalt rock is spun into fibres which are laid down directionally to form solid blocks of varying sizes and densities.
The properties of the Hydrorock Aquifer Blocks enable it to be used as a versatile water permeable substrate, which acts like both a sponge and a reservoir. Its uniquely fast absorbency, infiltration rates and 94% water retention capacity provide unparalleled performance.
