Mar-flex’s modern approach to waterproofing brings utilizes a three-step approach that protect buildings from water damage far into the future. A waterproofing membrane prevents water absorption, drainage boards guide water away from the structure and drainage tiles allow it to drain away harmlessly. Drainage tiles can control water drainage in a way that is unmatched the natural materials surrounding a structure or even the traditional option of gravel-covered pipes. Drainage tiles apply modern design and engineering to the problem of drainage, resulting in a dramatically more effective waterproofing system.
• Engineered to provide ample strength to protect waterproofing membranes
• Provides excellent drainage capabilities
• Designed to replace conventional corrugated pipes used for drainage around foundation & retaining walls. However, Mar-flex recommends gravel backfill in high silt/clay or sandy areas
• Part of a modular drainage and water collection system for basements, foundations and retaining walls
Mar-flex’s premier drainage tile, GeoDrain 12″, is a three-dimensional, high-flow drainage core. That core is then wrapped in a non-woven filter fabric. The fabric prevents the drainage system from becoming clogged, while the molded polymer core guides water away from vulnerable areas through channels designed for maximum drainage flow and compression strength. GeoDrain Drainage tile replaces, and improves upon, conventional gravel covered pipe drainage around retaining walls and foundations. However, Mar-flex recommends gravel backfill in high silt/clay or sandy areas. The below grade foundation or retaining wall must be backfilled and compacted to the density required by the applicable local code.
Mar-flex recommends GeoDrain to be used as part of a waterproofing system. Pairing its water-removal properties with a waterproofing membrane, such as Mar-flex 5000, and a drainage board, such as GeoMat+, ensures the maximum level of protection.
