Using Piledrain in retaining walls eliminates the build up of hydrostatic pressure within the structure. Piledrain drainage composite can be used as replacement for a no-fines concrete layer or be used in addition to, for added security. Piledrain is robust and lightweight and is easily installed in both vertical and horizontal applications; the geotextile fabric acts as a filtering and restraining medium to allow the flow of water into the three dimensional core and then on to the outlet drain.
In basement constructions Piledrain gives added security to BS8102 Grade 1 & 2 basements. Piledrain can be cast into the final concrete face or alternatively sprayed concrete can be applied on to the surface to create the final finish.
