StormTrap offers the industry’s best solutions for managing runoff, protecting waterways and improving the use of your property. Their customized stormwater management solutions provide detention, infiltration and treatment capabilities. One of these solutions is called the SingleTrap®.

SingleTrap® capitalizes on its numerous design flexibility to meet requirements without disturbing existing utilities or changing project configurations to meet stormwater needs. It fits seamlessly into the specifications and provides an effective solution that is high-strength, innovative, easily maintained and cost-effective.

Each SingleTrap® design is supported by a concrete Slab on Grade. In working with Helix Steel engineering, the contractor on this project leveraged Helix® Micro Rebar™ reinforcement to replace 100% of the rebar from the original reinforcement design. This resulted in a more resilient and durable Slab on Grade while also reducing time from the construction schedule.
