The Benefits of Using Nero Cell

Nero Cell is a key component in water management and drainage, allowing for irrigation during drier periods of the year and avoiding flooding during wetter periods.

Nero Cell is equipped with a whole host of benefits, such as:

Size and Weight

Nero Cell weighs only 3.2kg per square metre, as opposed to gravel, another effective drainage method, which is around 250kg per square metre. This reduces deck loads, and the fact that it is so lightweight means no heavy machinery or extensive labour is required to install Nero Cell.

The Cells are also thin, which reduces the depth of their cover and means they can be used in shallower areas, such as planters, without taking up too much space.


The lightweight structure of the cells make them very flexible as well as being easy to install and fit together. Their uniform shape and size also make them incredibly easy to stack and store.


The most impressive performance based benefit of Nero Cell is the load carrying capacity of up to >135 tons per metre squared. This allows for a high lateral flow capacity.

Nero Cell can create the ideal conditions for plant growth as it holds water, and maintains its size both once full and when drained, meaning there is ideal space for plants and other vegetation to grow.

Other Benefits

Other benefits of the Nero cell include:

  • Environmentally friendly - made from recycled polypropylene.
  • Reduces hydrostatic forces upon sub-grade walls.
  • Reduce the risk of waterproofing to crack due to thermal expansion in hot periods.
  • Recharges Groundwater Table through principle of infiltration when used on natural Ground surface.
