The UK and Ireland’s leading water management solutions manufacturer, Kingspan Klargester, is relaunching its Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SuDS) product range under the AquaCore brand.

The range includes both water treatment and hydrocarbon separators, attenuation tanks, rainwater harvesting systems, pumps and flow control devices.

Their robust construction, in-built remote monitoring systems, plus the option of a comprehensive service and maintenance package, all help maintain their efficacy and efficiency over their lifetime. As a result, AquaCore products, where eligible*, are expected to meet the current criteria for adoption by water companies under the latest Design Construction Guidance (DCG) introduced in April 2020.

The news is expected to be welcomed by specifiers and developers as they tackle the growing demand for future-proofed flood management systems that can deliver the central tenets behind SuDS; improved water quality, water quantity, amenity value and biodiversity.

Flooding is becoming an annual occurrence in the UK affecting thousands of communities across the country, destroying livelihoods, damaging properties, and tragically also claiming lives. As a result, architects and developers are being encouraged to include surface water management schemes as part of their project planning under the UK’s National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF).

Kingspan Klargester’s AquaCore products are high-quality solutions that can be fitted solus, or incorporated into SuDS Management Trains, to effectively manage water volumes and improve water quality. 

The market-leading range includes:

  • AquaTreat surface water treatment separators and AquaOil bypass light liquid separators and full retention light liquid separators
  • AquaStore attenuation tanks for silt and debris management
  • AquaHarvest rainwater harvesting systems (*note, rainwater harvesting systems per se are not eligible for adoption)
  • AquaFlow water flow control device
  • AquaPump to control the release of water on an application

All new specifications are supported by Kingspan Klargester’s expert advice, free site visits, and design support service. The products are delivered factory-fitted, direct to site, ready to go in the ground; a key feature where time is money on-site.

Three products in the range, AquaTreat, AquaOil and AquaPump, are equipped with Kingspan SmartServ Pro remote asset monitoring systems for effortless performance management.  The systems were developed in line with Kingspan’s Planet Passionate initiative and provide end-users with email alerts of any servicing requirements or other potential issues.

“We have a long-standing history of offering world class technical support to our merchant partners, and this will be reflected in how we work with them on SuDS projects,” says Dave Vincent, Kingspan Klargester Commercial Director UK, Ireland, MEA and US.

“As soon as an order comes in from a merchant, our engineers get to work to create a suitable, reliable solution, in line with the project objectives, which will work alongside any other stormwater management techniques being employed on-site.”

Dave continues: “Our Area Sales Managers are available to visit the site and provide bespoke advice, tailored to the individual – often complex - needs of each project. We have over 65 years of experience in water management so you can be sure that we will be able to give expert advice and deliver against the customer brief.”

“We know that specifiers and developers are understandably concerned to ensure their scheme is adopted by the local water company under the DCG.  Our AquaCore range is supported by remote monitoring systems and we can include lifetime servicing support as an optional extra.”
