Charcon and Swarm team up to aid surface water management in the UK

Charcon, the hard landscaping division of Aggregate Industries, has partnered with Swarm Water Management, a UK based manufacturer of surface water management products, in order to provide a range of low to high capacity drainage products called H2O Linear Drainage.


Made in UK, Swarm’s Linear Surface Water Drainage System, is an innovative and patented system designed to help save time and money on site by handling heavy rainfall. It can be hidden into paving, is low maintenance and environmentally friendly. It also boasts up to 99% recycled material within its pipework and with each length incorporating up to 800 recycled High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) bottles - complementing Charcon’s Life range of products.

The partnership is offering a range of linear drainage products that can minimise the impact of rainwater run-off and flooding in hard landscaped areas. The product ranges can be used in a variety of settings including city and urban areas, car parks and landscaped areas, as well as heavier duty applications such as industrial sites.

Ian Geeson, Technical Manager at Charcon, said: “With high levels of rainfall becoming more frequent in the UK, high capacity drainage is required now more than ever. This is why we are proud to have partnered with Swarm to be able to offer a first-class range of products which can be easily installed to help reduce the issue of flooding across the country, while complementing our wide range of hard landscaping materials.”

Justin Carter, Managing Director at Swarm, added: “We are very pleased to be working with the team at Charcon. Our joint approach and product offering enables us to give the customer the most value engineered solution to any project. By bringing the knowledge together within both organisations it underpins the experience received by our customers. Our products are designed for ease of use in mind and fit perfectly alongside the products offered within the Charcon range.
