Nilex Horizontal Drainage systems are used to improve drainage and replace or reduce natural aggregate drainage materials in horizontal applications such as plaza decks, Green Roofs, patios and planters.
Prefabricated drains provide protection for waterproofing systems as well as positive drainage in the minimum amount of space (elevation) and weight, both critical elements in roof and deck applications. In planters, planting soil is retained while water passes into the drainage core and is then conveyed into the collection system.
Nilex’s NuDrain series of drainage materials is available in a range of compressive strengths to accommodate varying loading conditions. Please contact us for assistance in determining a suitable material for your project.
Nilex NuDrain WD10, WD15, WD 15(WP) and PD20
The NuDrain WD and PD series of drainage products consist of an impermeable polymeric sheet cuspated under heat and pressure to form a high-flow dimpled drainage core. The core is then bonded to a layer of nonwoven (WD series) or woven (PD series) geotextile. The geotextile retains soil or sand particles as well as freshly placed concrete or grout, allowing filtered water to pass into the drainage core.
Nilex NuDrain DN50
NuDrain DN50 consists of a heavy-duty, high density polyethylene drainage core with its ridges heat fused to a layer of nonwoven geotextile. The geotextile retains soil or sand particles as well as freshly placed concrete or grout, allowing filtered water to pass into the drainage core. DN50 is available with geotextile on one or both sides.
