The Original Drainage Cell since 1986

The Flo-Cell® drainage system is flagship product invented and developed by the founder of the company in 1986. The product was developed to facilitate adding roof top gardens and planter boxes to building construction without adding heavy aggregate as drainage that placed severe limitations on the structural design of the building. The product provided a structurally strong structure, highly effective drainage and lightweight properties that was so successful that the drainage cell became an landscaping industry standard.

The Flo-Cell® Drainage Cell is available in the following sizes;

  • 20 mm
  • 30 mm
  • 52 mm

The Flo-Cell® range is a versatile product suitable for many applications including the drainage of sports fields, civil works, retaining walls and landscaping applications. The Flo-Cell® is also ideally suited for WSUD (Water Sensitive Urban Design) applications and provides and ideal use for increasing the permeability of ground areas which reduces overland flow and facilitates groundwater recharge.
