The Power of Hexagonal Design: Understanding HOENSOEY Cells


The Power of Hexagonal Design: Understanding HOENSOEY Cells


The hexagonal form, derived from nature's beehives, snowflakes, and honeycombs, has always fascinated engineers and designers alike. Today, we will explore how this shape’s properties play a pivotal role in the design and functioning of HOENSOEY Cells.


The decision to incorporate a hexagonal shape into the HOENSOEY Cells is not accidental. It's a conscious choice based on the scientific understanding of the shape's unique properties.


Maximized Area and Minimized Perimeter:

The hexagonal shape provides an optimal solution to maximizing area while minimizing the perimeter. This grants these Ultra-Shallow Stormwater Modules the advantage of having a large internal space for water storage while minimizing the material needed for their structure. In comparison to shapes like circles or squares, hexagons help economize material usage, making these units both cost-effective and environmentally friendly.

Stability and Uniformity:

The hexagonal design provides inherent stability and uniformity to the Underground Drainage Module. Each internal angle of the hexagon precisely at 120 degrees ensures that forces are evenly distributed throughout the structure, resulting in high stability. This balanced force distribution endows the hexagonal structure with impressive compressive strength, enabling it to maintain its form and integrity even under high pressure.


Seamless Nesting Capability:

One more compelling property of the hexagonal shape is its exceptional tessellation capability. Multiple hexagons can snugly nest together without leaving any gaps. This compact arrangement improves the system's density and efficiency, making these Modular Rainwater Harvesting Cells ideal for projects requiring high space efficiency.


The Innovation Behind HOENSOEY Cells:

HOENSOEY Cells are innovative, ultra-shallow, geocellular stormwater management storage modules. They feature impressive compressive strength and are equipped with patented self-interlocking buckles. 

Key Features:

  1. Impressive Compressive Strength: The Rainwater Attenuation Crates can handle considerable load pressures, withstanding vertical loading of 130 tons per square meter and lateral loading of 40 tons per square meter.
  2. Hollow Structures: The Stormwater Modules have a hollow exterior and solid interior structure, allowing water to flow smoothly between each module. The void ratio is roughly 95%, beneficial for water processing procedures.
  3. Patented Interlocking Buckles: Each Soakaway Crate is designed with six distinct sets of patented buckles that securely connect them together. This system makes installation easy and fast and keeps the units inseparable.
  4. Hexagonal Design: The hexagonal design of the Infiltration Units contributes to their robust strength, provides efficient space utilization, and allows complex combinations without leaving gaps.

By incorporating the hexagonal design, the Rainwater Storage Honeycomb Units mirror a commitment to efficiency, stability, and sustainability. They are a cost-effective and eco-friendly solution for stormwater management, suitable for various settings, including roads, green roofs, eco landscapes, courtyards, and athletic fields. These units come with a two-year warranty, demonstrating confidence in their durability.


The hexagonal design of the HOENSOEY Cells is a testament to the harmonious marriage of form and function in product design. It's a potent reminder of the potential of bio-inspired design and the power of observing and learning from the natural world.
