Technical Documents

Key technical documents including product performance and selection information can be downloaded from the links on the right.  

IMPORTANT: All relevant codes applicable to the location of installation must be observed to achieve a compliant outcome.  Dam Buster does not provide any design advice and correct usage of our products is entirely the responsibility of the relevant installer/certifier.  

Dam Buster Quick Design Guide

Forget the confusing maze of graphs and formulas in the Australian Standards and handbooks.  This incredibly easy to use guide consolidates all of that into simple form.  It covers issues like calculating flow rates, down pipe sizes, box gutter depths and how to easily select the correct Dam Buster products you need.  It's never been this easy!!  

Performance Solution Templates

These Performance Solution templates have been prepared as suggestions only to assist with the Performance Solution Process. Naturally, none of this information applies to any non-genuine Dam Buster product or products, and Intellectual Property infringers are advised that they will be vigorously pursued.

Dam Buster takes no responsibility for any Performance Solution prepared using these templates; they are a suggested format and/or method only and must be used solely by suitably experienced and qualified persons.  Users must validate all documents, make all necessary calculations independently, and otherwise take all steps necessary, including the engagement of appropriate experts, to ensure a fully compliant outcome arises from the use and installation of all our innovative products. 

Installation Manual For All Dam Buster Products

Dam Buster products are new, fully engineered designs.  Don't guess anything or make assumptions based on experience - check the Installation Manual before you start the project.

Rainhead Overflow Performance Test Certificates

Dam Buster rainhead overflow Performance Certificates issued by the AHSCA Research Foundation can be downloaded on the right.

NB: These documents show images of rainheads with either round or rectangular secondary front overflows, however all testing conducted by the AHSCA Research Foundation and referenced in these certificates was carried out with the secondary front overflows fully blocked. This testing also confirmed the secondary front overflows were not necessary and hence have since been deleted from later production. The test certificates therefore apply to all Dam Buster rainhead products regardless of series and/or whether or not they have a secondary front overflow device fitted. 

Dam Buster Education at Work

On 13 April 2022 the Dam Buster team presented to a packed meeting of the Association of Hydraulic Services Consultants Australia (Vic).  A copy of the presentation can be downloaded on the left.
