These edge drains are widely used in highway drainage applications throughout the world.
PaveDrain® is a proprietary product consisting of a flexible geocomposite plastic strip filter cuspated core encased in a geotextile filter forming part of the structural composite. Pavedrain® core is manufactured from virgin HDPE that has proven to be a long lasting durable polymer over decades of construction use. The core has a cuspated profile for the efficient discharge of water whilst maintaining good structural integrity during placement and service conditions. The core has high compressive strength with minimal deflection under load.
