Drainage & Protection Boards

Geo-Wrap Drainage Composite

 

Geo-Wrap is a high-performance, high strength drainage composite consisting of a three dimensional, high impact polypropylene core and a non-woven filter fabric. Geo-Wrap performs a multi-faceted role by providing protection for waterproofing systems and managing sub-surface water around building foundations. Geo-Wrap provides effective protection for foundations of all kinds, in applications ranging from major civil and commercial projects to residential basements.

 

Geo-Wrap’s geo-textile and polypropylene are welded together in a special thermal process to form a permanent bond. Unlike conventional geo-textile membranes which are glued, Geo-Wrap’s filter fabric will not easily separate and isn’t subject to slipping over time. Soil backfill is retained by the filter fabric while allowing water to pass into the drainage core providing hydrostatic relief. Collected water is then conveyed to a proper collection system.

 

Uses:

  • Foundation walls (both waterproofed and non-waterproofed)

  • Retaining walls

  • Planters

  • Lagging Systems

  • Bridge abutment

Wrap-N-Drain

 

Wrap-N-Drain is a multi-use, polypropylene plastic sheet membrane that is designed to provide a permanent water and moisture barrier along the surface to which it is installed.

 

This permanent barrier prevents backfill soil and moisture from resting against the foundation wall, channelling the water down through the soil to the footing drainage system.

 

The dimpled surface of Wrap-N-Drain is installed facing the surface creating a 6 mm (1/4”) drain air-gap barrier which protects the basement interior from outside soil moisture and allows moisture originating from inside the basement to escape to the air gap where it condenses and drains away to the footing drainage system.


Uses:

  • Residential basements

  • Commercial foundations

  • Retaining walls

  • Foundation slabs

  • Protection board/drainage membrane for waterproofing products
