Siphonic Drainage

What is Siphonic drainage?

Siphonic Drainage is a bespoke, engineered solution that utilises the power of a vertical-induced vacuum to create an efficient, high-velocity roof drainage solution.

The system was originally developed in Scandinavia in the 1960s, and has been in use in the UK and Ireland since the early 1990’s.

Offering a range of key advantages, it is seen by many as the most significant innovation in construction roofing technology within the last 25 years. From its high performance and space-saving properties to its capability to reduce infrastructure and plumbing maintenance, siphonic drainage can offer your projects so much. Architects also prefer it thanks to its renowned flexibility in design and capacity for eco sustainability.

We also specialise in hybrid siphonic-gravity drainage solutions.
