The experience and expertise of both AFITEX and Texel strive for excellence in the design, development, manufacture and marketing of high quality specialized synthetic materials – such as DRAINTUBE – primarily used/destined for geocomposite drainage markets in civil engineering, mining, sports and environment. Located in Sainte-Marie, Quebec, the company transforms basic textiles into high performing geosynthetic drainage products.
Relying on its experience and know-how, the company focuses on three major assets:
- High quality products
- Outstanding customer service
- Innovative edge
AFITEX–Texel’s priority is to understand and anticipate customers’ expectations, while at the same time adapting to the designers and entrepreneurs’ constraints and concerns.
DRAINTUBE: Performant and Cost efficient.
Multi-linear drainage geocomposite DRAINTUBE offers an effective alternative to gravel layers used for roads construction and other earthwork projects. Thanks to its high resistance to compression, it offers high flow capacity even under high loads.
DRAINTUBE optimizes construction projects by simplifying the installation of draining layers. It reduces the time of construction work and offers high long-term mechanical and hydraulic performances.
DRAINTUBE: Robust and Technical
For many years, AFITEX-Texel has developed and manufactured multi-linear drainage geocomposites to decrease pore pressures in the soils. DRAINTUBE technology is a solution that provides safety, long term stability as well as consequent environmental footprint reductions.
DRAINTUBE provides technical and innovative solutions for mines rehabilitation, tailings drying or dams drainage. For more than 30 years, DRAINTUBE has been able to effectively drain liquids and gases even under extreme conditions.
Socially responsible drainage geocomposite
Multi-linear drainage geocomposite DRAINTUBE offers an efficient and cost-effective drainage solution for buildings and sports fields.
The use of DRAINTUBE for the drainage of the foundations increases playing time on synthetic and natural sports fields.
On polluted soil, DRAINTUBE collects and effectively evacuates soil gases (biogas, radon, etc.) under the building. For soil water drainage under concrete slab, it replaces the granular draining layers and reduces the excavation work. DRAINTUBE drainage geocomposite offers an effective alternative regarding the performance and cost. It also reduces the social and environmental footprint on-site.
