ACO’s Urban + Landscape division will now be known as ACO Building + Landscape, and cater for the domestic market.

It has launched a range of roof outlets for the growing market in flat roofs, balconies and roof terraces. The company said these provide  "high performance rainwater drainage for flat roof applications, to suit individual needs".

It has also introduced a range of backflow valves, designed to address the increased risk of houses being following the rise of housing developments on flood plains.  

ACO Junior, ACO Triplex and ACO Quatrix devices all provide anti-flooding protection against the ingress of grey and black water. The range of valves can be installed in basements or existing pipes, providing resilient flood protection for areas that are at risk or prone to flooding.

Market manager Phil Windus said: "The rebranding of our Building + Landscape range, coupled with the launch of our new products, will help to define our position in the market as a leading provider of both internal and external water management systems.

"We have a strong portfolio of landscape drainage products and we believe our broader offering will further strengthen our reputation in the industry. We’re confident that this change will help to meet the growing needs of our diverse customer base and provide a quality drainage solution."
