SITEDRAIN & AASHTO M 288-06
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 water beneath roadway systems weakens the soil structure beneath the pavement.  Excess water reduces the shear strength of the materials and can cause fine grained soils to migrate and create voids.

These conditions lead to reduced pavement life, reduced pavement ride quality, pavement settlement, pavement cracking and ultimately pavement failure in extreme cases.

 
The Solution

 

     
  SITEDRAIN geocomposite strip drain products are engineered to provide predictable high performance drainage to eliminate subsurface water accumulation.  The formed polymer core encapsulated in a bonded geotextile filter fabric retain soil particles while allowing water to freely enter the drainage core and convey to designated outlets.
     

 

The Products
 

SITEDRAIN Strip Series is an engineered, value based alternative to traditional pipe and stone drainage systems.  It provides a significantly higher collection rate, comparable flow rate and increased ease of handling and installation without the cost and aggravation of stone.

SITEDRAIN Strip Series products are manufactured in 6,000 PSF or 9,000 PSF compressive strength options, and are available with geotextiles meeting AASHTO M 288-06 specifications insuring high performance and high survivability for the most demanding civil and highway construction conditions.

FITTINGS:

AWD offers a complete line of fittings to connect your engineered geocomposite drainage system to traditional conveyance pipes.
