AWD prefabricated drains provide a specific engineered response to a particular drainage problem-how to collect and re-direct water away from a structure or site.
Our prefabricated drains consist of formed three dimensional polymeric cores that are combined with a geotextile filter fabric. The core offers strength and provides a secure flow channel for collected water. The filter fabric retains soil particles while allowing water to freely enter the drainage core.
