PARADRAIN® FEATURES
  • Geogrid with integral drainage function

  • Allows the use of marginal fill materials which have poor drainage properties

  • Does not require specialist fills

  • Reduces environmental impact



PARADRAIN™
CASE STUDIES




PARADRAIN® is a geogrid combining reinforcement and drainage functions in one product especially suitable for use with marginal, poorly draining backfill materials.

PARADRAIN® The Ultimate Geocomposite Drainage Grid

With tough, durable and porpous properties, PARADRAIN® is ideal for marinal fill, slope reinforcement

PARADRAIN® is a two dimensional geogrid manufactured on specially designed equipment that is unique to Linear Composites Ltd.

PARADRAIN® can be manufactured up to 3.9 metres wide. The machine direction and cross machine direction members are securely bonded at the cross-over points.

Intermediate grades and non-standard roll dimensions are available on request.

PARADRAIN® can be used in embankment and slope reinforcement where the combined reinforcement and drainage functions can operate effectively in marginal fills.

By providing a regular array of positive drainage paths, PARADRAIN® allows excess pore water pressures generated during construction to be quickly and effectively dissipated. The full technical properties and performance parameters are detailed in separate data sheets, which are to download within the secure login area.
