The bunkers are fitted with CapillaryFlow, and on the inside of the bunker edge an artificial strip of grass is glued onto the inside of the CapillaryFlow Concrete material. The water at the heavy rain that flows easily into the bunker and washes away the sand now takes the road on the inside of the artificial turf edge and straight down into the drainage layer. So far it has worked really well and it will be interesting to follow function in the future.

Har man på Torrekulla, Mölndal hittat lösningen på bortspolning av sand i bunkrar s.k. wash out?

Bunkrarna är försedda med Capillary Concrete, ett hårt dräneringsskikt bestående av lecakulor och cement. I övre ändan mot gräskanten limmas en konstgräsremsa lodrätt mot gräskanten. Vattnet vid kraftiga regn som lätt rinner in i bunkern och spolar iväg sanden tar nu vägen på insidan av konstgräskanten och direkt ned i dräneringsskiktet. Så här långt har det fungerat utmärkt och det skall bli intressant att följa funktionen framåt i tiden.
