Volclay Aquadrain 15X is a simple, reliable and cost-effective alternative to Aggregate Drainage
Aquadrain drainage composite is a two-part prefabricated sheet drain consisting of a 3 dimensional propylene formed dimple core covered with a woven polypropylene filter fabric bonded to one side. The formed dimple core provides compressive strength and collects water for flow to drainage discharge pipes. This filter fabric allows water and other liquids to pass into the drainage core while restricting the passage of soil particles. The filter fabric is bonded to each dimple to minimise fabric intrusion into the core resulting from backfill pressure. The polypropylene core resists chemical attack and degradation in soil.
Advantages Over Aggregate Drainage: Sheet drainage offers the following advantages over aggregate:
When Aquadrain is used with waterproofing it enhances the waterproofing system by collecting and transporting water away, as well as provides protection – especially during backfill.
APPLICATIONS: AQUADRAIN 15X is a cost-effective drainage sheet designed to replace or complement aggregate drainage backfills. It is designed primarily for vertical sub-surface applications requiring a high compressive strength and high flow capacity. Applications include foundation walls, retaining walls, bridge abutments, planters, tunnels and other earth-covered structures. AQUADRAIN 15X can also function as a protection course when installed over a waterproofing membrane on podium decks.
Another watertight underpass is completed. The brief was durability for the life of the structure with a requirement to be leak free to maintain the integrity of both the profiled panel façades and the Architectural Coating.READ MORE
The self-sealing properties of the Volclay Swelltite Sodium Bentonite Membrane made an ideal choice for this & other high profile earth covered structures.
