Secudrain®

is a three-dimensional composite product, consisting of a drainage core and firmly attached filter nonwoven geotextiles for drainage applications.

Secudrain® is multifunctional

Secudrain® is used extensively to drain water or gas in various applications. In landfill engineering, Secudrain® serves three functions at once (filtration, protection and drainage) when installed directly above a geomembrane. The ability of Secudrain® to passively relieve water pressure makes it ideal for drainage over buried structures and for road-edge strip-drain applications. The filter geotextiles and the drainage core can be efficiently dimensioned to meet the required drainage capacity. Secudrain® is also used success fully as a drainage layer in the construction of buildings, tunnels and roofs.

Advantages of Secudrain®

- filtration, protection and drainage in one product
- excellent in-plane flow properties
- long-term hydraulic performance
- replaces natural drainage aggregate
- very high creep resistance
- resistance to chemical and biological degradation
- perfectly suited for steep slope application due to very good shear properties
- robust against on-site conditions
- quick and cost-effective installation
- highest quality control standards
- ISO 9001 certified
- CE marked

Secudrain® is safe

Secudrain® is properly dimensioned durable and robust; it handles mechanical loads with ease. It is resistant to all naturally occurring chemical and biological factors in the soil. The needle-punched nonwovens long-term filter efficiency allows for safe design of passive drainage and thus ensures the system’s longevity. The use of needle-punched non wovens leads to a high interfacial friction angle, especially important on steep slopes. The regular bonding between the geotextile and drainage core ensures transmission of shearing forces through the Secudrain® system.

Secudrain® is economical

Since the filter, drainage, and protection layer comprise one unit, Secudrain® can be installed rapidly. The use of Secudrain® in earth construction requires less excava tion of in-situ material and, in the case of a landfill liner, the containment vo lume is increased. Using Secudrain® saves time and natural resources since 10,000 m² of the Secudrain® system can replace the extraction, transport, and installation of approximately 3,000 m³ of granular drainage material. Secudrain® keeps your costs lower than conventional methods.

Secudrain® is simple

One or two people can carry and unroll the lightweight rolls of Secudrain® without problem and it can be installed in most weather conditions. Complicated connections are easy with Secudrain® and it readily fits to the contours of the job site.

Conclusion

Secudrain® excels by its versatility. The installation is simple and straightforward. Secudrain® is extremely resistant to environmental factors and its use saves natural resources.
