Drainage mat: Secudrain®
Secudrain® drainage mats
The drainage mat Secudrain® is a geocomposite of a wave-extruded monofilament drainage core and at least one Secutex® nonwoven geotextile as separation / filtration layer. All components are made of polypropylene and are firmly bonded with each other.
Typical solutions with Secudrain®
- Drainage of recultivation/cover soil layers on sealing systems
- Gas drainage under sealing systems or buildings
- Leachate detection in multi-layered sealing systems
- Seepage water drainage at building structures such as bridge abutments, cellars etc.
Selected advantages of Secudrain®
Advantage 1: Excellent long-term behaviour of Secudrain® drainage geocomposites
The long-term behaviour of Secudrain® WD has been extensively investigated in both, laboratory and field tests. The wave structure of the drainage core ensures a high hydraulic capacity in the long term.
Advantage 2: Secudrain® is economic and efficient
Conventional drainage layers consist of several decimeters thick gravel or similar coarse material. Secudrain® replaces mineral material equivalently at significantly reduced work assignment and machinery application due to easier transportation and installation.
Advantage 3: Thermally fused components for high shear resistant bond
Secudrain® geocomposites achieve high inner shear strength due to thermal fusion of the geotextile components to the drainage core. This shear resistant bond also simplifies installation of geocomposite panels.
