SITEDRAIN geocomposite drainage products provide solutions for a wide variety of subsurface drainage problems.  Multiple core and geotextile combinations are available to meet project specific conditions and requirements, including geotextiles meeting AASHTO M 288-06 specifications insuring high performance and high survivability for the most demanding civil and highway construction conditions. For product selection and design assistance please contact your AWD technical services professional.
The Problem

Subsurface accumulation of water against structural walls can be dangerous and damaging.  Subsurface water creates hydrostatic pressure which exerts additional load and exposes leaks in membranes and structures.  In extreme cases the additional load may exceed the structural design and lead to structural failure.

Temporary shoring walls are used to retain soil until permanent walls are installed. Types of shoring walls include shotcrete, lagging, soldier pile, soil nail, and sheet pile. These applications present unique challenges due to the often limited area between the excavation and proposed structure.  This requires the structural wall to be built against the shoring wall, with geocomposite drainage installed between the two to reduce hydrostatic pressure and minimize leaks.

 

The Solution
SITEDRAIN engineered geocomposite products provide predictable high performance drainage to eliminate subsurface water accumulation. The formed, polymer core and bonded geotextile retain soil particles while allowing water to freely enter the drainage core and convey to designated outlets.   
 

 

The Products
      SITEDRAIN Sheet 90 Series is designed for structural wall applications where moderate compressive strength and flow capacity are desired. The geotextile side of the drain faces the shoring wall. 
         
      SITEDRAIN Sheet 180 Series is designed for structural wall applications requiring an increased compressive strength and increased flow capacity.  The geotextile side of the drain faces the shoring wall.
         
      SITEDRAIN C-90 Series chimney drain is designed for structural wall applications where moderate compressive strength and flow capacity are desired, and where full wall coverage is not feasible or required. The dimple side of the drain faces the shoring wall. 
         
      SITEDRAIN C-180 Series chimney drain is designed for structural wall applications requiring an increased compressive strength and increased flow capacity, and where full wall coverage is not feasible or required. The dimple side of the drain faces the shoring wall.
         
      SITEDRAIN HQ Series is an engineered collection and high flow conveyance system designed specifically for use with SITEDRAIN Sheet Series and C-Series products.  This patented design combines a low and high profile core with a unique core flange that allows a direct connection to the sheet and/or chimney drain.
         
SITEDRAIN HQ Series and Strip Series products can minimize or eliminate weep holes by re-directing water to designated outlets.
