Multi-linear drainage geocomposite DRAINTUBE replaces draining granular materials used in civil engineering projects. Thanks to its high compressive strength, DRAINTUBE offers high flow capacities even under high stress.
DRAINTUBE optimizes construction projects by simplifying the installation of the drainage layers. It decreases the construction time and offers high mechanical and hydraulic performances.
Under road or rail embankments, DRAINTUBE drains high water tables and collects lateral water flows.
On soft soils, DRAINTUBE is placed directly on top of the vertical wick drains as horizontal drainage base layer. The drainage geocomposite collects and drains the water from the wick drains to the sides of the preloading embankment.
Behind Mechanically Stabilised Earth (MSE) walls and in cuttings, DRAINTUBE intercepts lateral groundwater flows and protects the structure. Thanks to its high compressive strength, DRAINTUBE can be used behind high MSE walls.
Multi-linear drainage geocomposite DRAINTUBE offers an effective alternative to gravel layers. It has a wide number of advantages:
- Lower costs,
- Faster construction,
- Less excavation and/or backfill,
- Better performance,
- Lower greenhouse gas emissions.
