Environmental Headwall Stainless Steel Mesh Baskets

Environmental Headwall Stainless Steel Mesh Baskets

Controflow Environmental Headwall SuDS Baskets are manufactured in stainless steel mesh for filling with stone and act as attractive inlets or outlets that protect pipe openings and flow control orifices, or as erosion control to enable gentle water flows down slopes.

Conventional drainage structures – such as gully pots, gratings, inspection chambers and pipe conveyance systems – trap and prevent the escape of small rodents, reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates. Controflow inlet and outlet baskets reduce the risk of wildlife mortality dramatically.

By integrating these elements, environmental headwalls contribute to effective water management, reduced environmental impact, and enhanced landscape aesthetics, making them a vital component of sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS) and other water management strategies.

Natural Aesthetics Constructed using materials that compliment and mimic natural surroundings,  that can support vegetation growth if required.

Erosion Control Incorporates erosion control measures around the outflow area to prevent soil erosion caused by water discharge.

Habitat Protection Designed to protect local wildlife habitats by providing stable and controlled water discharge, preventing sudden surges that can harm ecosystems.

Hydraulic Efficiency Ensures efficient water flow and prevents blockages, which helps maintain the performance of the drainage system.

Sustainability Integrates with green infrastructure to enhance water quality and provide additional ecological benefits.

Structural Integrity Provides robust structural support to prevent damage to the drainage system and surrounding areas during heavy water flow events.

Buy What You Need

An additional turnkey service we offer, is to compliment the purchase of your stainless steel mesh basket with the purchase of the 80-150mm gabion stone to fill it.

We can provide you with the exact amount of gabion stone you require to fill your basket. A far simpler option than buying a minimum tonnage from a quarry, having it tipped on site, then being left with a pile of surplus stone.

The gabion stone will be delivered to site with your mesh basket(s) in easy to handle bulk bags.
