FIN DRAINS AND DRAINAGE COMPOSITES

Subsoil drains premanufactured for ease of installation and supplied in differing heights

Drainage is defined as the collection and transportation of rainwater, groundwater or other fluids such as leachates and gases. Geosynthetic drainage systems are being increasingly used as a more effective and economic alternative to traditional granular based solutions

A Unique drainage core collects and channels liquids and gases to a carrier pipe for transportation to a suitable discharge point.

Benefits

  • Cost effective
  • High water flows compared to traditional drainage stone
  • Space saving, narrow trench requirement
  • Re-use of site excavated materials
  • Reduction or elimination of drainage stone
  • Speed up consolidation
  • Rapid installation
  • Allows water flow in all directions

Applications

  • Edge of carriageway drainage system
  • Combined surface and sub-surface drainage
  • Embankment basal and consolidation layer
  • Drainage to concrete channels
  • Toe of batter drainage
  • Cut off drain
  • Embankment counterfort drain

Findrains also have applications in the drainage of embankments and reinforced earth structures, cut-off trenches on contaminated land and landscape applications where a narrow trench is dug and the Findrain then placed within the trench and backfilled using excavated materials
