DuraForce AS series geotextiles are manufactured and tested to exact quality standards and rated according to the NZTA F/7 specification for geotextiles. Available in a range of grades depending on the particular engineering application required.
Triton Stormwater System
It is essential to properly contain sediments, contaminants, and surface runoff in order to meet environmental regulations and create world-class projects.
The Triton stormwater system offers developers the tools they need to meet these demands with an easy to use underground system that saves time and money.
This system combines eco-friendly materials with an ultra-durable yet lightweight design that is easy to install and maintain. It also saves on space, as the chambers can be double-stacked in many applications, reducing the footprint.
The chambers, constructed from soy based resins, are easy to handle and set into place. The interlocking design allows for a quick connection to the chambers to create the required row lengths. Their strength allows for speedier backfill rates and shallower depth requirements than competitive products. Triton chambers compare closely to traditional pipe products but at a fraction of the weight.
The design of this system is designed to simplify routine maintenance. Utility holes in the sump basin and on the Main Header Row allow maintenance personnel simple access points to inspect the system and maintain it if necessary.
The innovative distribution dynamics of the Main Header Row result in significant maintenance reduction. Outlet feeder pipes to the distribution rows are angled downward from the upper portion of the Main Header Row chambers, ensuring that the bulk of sediment has settled before stormwater is moved to the distribution rows. This prevents build up in the distribution rows and preserves the infiltration rate.
The Main Header Row is designed to capture the ‘first flush’ and offers the versatility to be sized on a volume or flow rate basis to facilitate this use on most projects. An upstream utility hole not only provides access but typically includes a high-flow outlet that controls excessive stormwater volume by discharging overflow onto surrounding stone or through a manifold to other Main Header Row chambers.
The sediment floors are designed to prevent scouring of the underlying stone and to stop sediment infiltration into the ground under the Main Header Row. The floors lock together and link with the chambers to remain engaged during high flow events and high pressure cleaning.

The Five Mile retail development site is part of the rapidly expanding Frankton Flats development in the Queenstown. Constructing such a massive commercial development on silty soils meant it was essential to utilise a proven stormwater management system.
When LIC (Livestock Improvement Centre), a rapidly expanding farmer-owned co-operative and an employer of 2000 staff needed to grow its Head Office Carpark in Newstead Hamilton, there was no option other than to develop the space where the current stormwater pond for the site was situated.
