ProDrain® SD Series Strip Filter Drains are prefabricated drainage composites for the efficient filtering of groundwater. All SD drainage cores are encapsulated with a high flow geotextile that prevents long term blockage of the drain core by excluding the ingress of fine soil particles. The core is made from HDPE polymer combined with a PP/PET geotextile. Both polymers are inert to a wide range of acids and alkalis likely to be found in a soil environment.
ProDrain SD Strip Filter Drains are designed for applications of :
ProDrain® SD drainage systems provide more efficient drainage capacities than imported natural materials such as crushed aggregate and conventional pipe systems. The ProDrain prefabricated drainage products are lightweight, easy to handle and install, providing a more cost effective method of drainage than traditional methods. ProDrain SD Series Strip Filter Drains require minimal trench excavation and come in a wide selection of depths for a variety of applications and site conditions
We also offer a complete range of purpose designed strip filter fittings that are complimentary to the strip filter drainage products and allow the greatest use of the product in a variety of inlet, outlet and maintenance applications that the ProDrain® strip filter product may be used.
