Roof Garden & Planter Box Drainage Remove excess water, while passively irrigating. The Atlantis® Drainage Cell is an ideal structural and lightweight system designed for Planter Box and Roof Garden applications.

Atlantis® Drainage Cell installed into planter box.

Atlantis® Drainage Cell features unique cups that provide passive irrigation.

The Atlantis® Drainage Cell allows optimal growing conditions for vegetation through ideal moisture conditions and aeration. Only excess water is removed and the soil profile retains a high moisture content. In addition the Atlantis® Drainage Cell features water storage cups used for passive irrigation and due to the structural design of the cell, a void space is created, providing aeration and promoting growth for root systems. The Atlantis® Drainage Cell will also function as a protective membrane for waterproofing on concrete slabs, walls and provide ventilation for concrete slabs, alleviating heat induced stress and cracking.

Benefits... • Efficient Drainage Efficiently removes only excess water.

1. Compressive strength tests were conducted at the University of Technology, Sydney under controlled conditions. Safety factors should be employed to these results as actual site conditions may effect real compressive strength values. 2. Atlantis® Matrix® tank modules are manufactured using recycled products, Atlantis recommends a structural capacity incorporating a minimum safety factor of 2 to allow for variation in recycled plastic batches. 3. Loading at yield from 160kN/m² to 200kN/m². Safety factors apply depending on application. For more information, please consult Atlantis Water Management. Note: Atlantis® products are manufactured from high quality recycled materials, carefully selected and under strict quality control procedures. The strength could vary slightly due to raw material, country of manufacture, manufacturing process and external conditions. Safety Factors: Engineers, designers and geotechnical engineers should design and calculate safety factors to a serviceable limited state to suit specific project.
