Our Geocomposite drains are manufactured by bonding together textiles, membranes and nets in different combinations to create easier-to-install replacements for conventional granular layers. The textile provides the filter function so this allows liquids and gases to pass into the net core but prevents soil particles from washing into and clogging the core. The net collects the liquids and gases which can then be conveyed to collection points. Membranes are used to provide the barrier function and prevent the passage of liquids and the majority of gases. Geocomposite Drains are designed such that they replace the traditional solution and extremely effective in the collection and conveyance of both liquids and gases.
A composite must:
♦ Be chemical resistant
♦ Be robust to survive installation and service life
♦ Be stable under load to resist deformation that could ultimately restrict flow
It’s filter must:
♦ Possess an apparent pore size to suit the soil and prevent the ingress of fines
♦ Provide sustained performance without blocking
