Road Drainage

Introduction

Nilex road drainage products enhance the performance of road and pavement structures by providing effective drainage of ground and surface water. Our road-edge drains come in a variety of sizes and capacities to provide rapid drainage of water entering the pavement structure. When used in place of conventional roadway drainage structures such as French drains, Nilex’s prefabricated drains provide equivalent or higher drainage capacity in a fraction of the space.  

The streamlined design of the prefabricated drainage systems provide significant cost savings and environmental benefits in the excavation and removal of material as well as the transportation and placement of drain rock.

Testimonials

I want to thank you for getting things organized as quickly as you did for us and for the follow up calls and site visits that allowed us to get this work done and meet our schedule dates for the road work. As well, your product knowledge and ability to provide the technical support when dealing with the consultants was a major help in getting the system approved and installed correctly.

Bob T, Project Manager, MGP Construction Ltd.

Not only was there a substantial cost savings realized by the client, there was also a benefit to the road structure as well. The original design road structure number was 3.780 and a calculated traffic (ESALs) of 2,147,000. The revised road structure number using the TX5 is 4.260 and a calculated traffic (ESALs) of 4,593,000.
