AKWADRAIN strip drain is a prefabricated, high-flow soil drainage system that offers better draw down of water than pipe while costing around 60% less to install. AKWADRAIN strip drain consists of a formed polymeric core surrounded by a geotextile filter fabric. The fabric allows water to pass into the core while restraining soil particles which might clog the core. The core allows water to flow to designated drainage exits.
AKWADRAIN strip drain is 1"(25mm) thick and is 6" (150mm) wide and 150 ft. long rolls.
AKWADRAIN prefabricated strip drain offers the following benefits:
Low Installed Cost - Combined installation and material cost is usually less than half that for aggregate drains.
Easy To Handle And Install - Lightweight, easy-to-handle prefabricated drain is placed easily and quickly. No heavy equipment or skilled laborers are required. Inexpensive to store and transport.
High Flow Capacity, No Clogging - Structure of core provides multiple channels for vertical and horizontal water flow. Filter fabric permits high volume entry of water into core while restraining soil particles.
Strong And Durable - Crush strength of core resists damage during installation or at greater soil depths. High tear and puncture strength of fabric insures no damage during backfilling or use.
Simple Inspection - Easy visual inspection of material and installation is possible.
Chemically Resistant - Both core and fabric are resistant to all naturally-occurring soil materials. Optional fabrics and cores are available for unusual chemical situations.
Reduces Drainage Space Requirements - Thickness requires much narrower trench than aggregate drainage. Excavation work and turf damage is minimized.
Predictable Performance - Uniform properties and quality assure predictable drain performance.
A simple, reliable, money-saving alternative to aggregate drainage.
