Mar-flex is a world-leading innovator of waterproofing systems. Modern building techniques utilize a three-pronged approach to achieving effective and (most importantly) long-lasting waterproofing solutions. The waterproofing membrane prevents water from being absorbed, and drainage boards channel water towards drainage tiles where it can drain away harmlessly. Without drainage tiles, buildings are restricted to the unpredictable and uncontrollable absorption power of the natural materials surrounding a structure or the fragile option of pipes covered in gravel. Compared to these inferior options, drainage tiles are a crucial component of an 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 and retaining walls
• Part of a modular drainage and water collection system for basements, foundations and retaining walls
Mar-flex GeoDrain 6″ drainage tile is a three-dimensional high-flow drainage core wrapped in a non-woven filter fabric. The drainage core’s design is molded to create channels which guide water away from vulnerable areas. The filter fabric prevents sediment from clogging these channels, so that flow capacity does not diminish over time. Drainage tile is designed replace conventional gravel covered pipe drainage around foundation and retaining walls, which have become obsolete in the face of improved technology. 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 be used as part of a waterproofing system. Pairing GeoDrain’s water-removal properties with a drainage board, such as GeoMat+, and a waterproofing membrane, such as Mar-flex 5000, ensures the maximum level of protection.
