Modular Penetrator Components

Features and Benefits

  • Peak flow reduction, peak time delay
  • Prevention of floating of street trees
  • Improving the growth environment and maintaining smooth tree growth due to underground irrigation
  • Pedestrian safety threat / Resolving cause of inconvenience

Inspection and maintenance

  • Maintenance by preventing clogging that causes functional deterioration (surface / contaminant cleaning)
  • Clean and replace rainwater-retaining stones by regularly removing modular infiltration tanks
