Application

Suitable for external basement walls or to protect underlying waterproofing from backfill damage.

Description

A vertical drainage layer for external basement walls and a protection board to primary membranes. It consists of an impermeable studded sheet, manufactured from high- density polyethylene with a polypropylene filter fabric bonded to the top of the surface of the studs.


Channels between the studs form an air gap against the underlying structure. Platon DOUBLE DRAIN forms drainage layers on both sides of the studded core sheet. The filter fabric facing the backfill material ensures the drainage channels are not blocked or obstructed.


Features and benefits:

  • The filter fabric layer ensures soil cannot enter membrane cavities to impede drainage.
  • Can be fixed vertically or horizontally to suit the application.


Installation:

  • Must be installed over a primary membrane, such as Triton EX100 adhesive sheet membrane, Triton TT Vapour Membrane or, when used horizontally, Triton TWS-Fastcoat.
  • Fix Platon DOUBLE DRAIN along the top edge above the primary membrane, with Platon DOUBLE DRAIN X-cramps at 250 mm centres. Overlap vertical joints by 120 mm and horizontal joints by 120 mm.
  • Filter fabric can be pulled back for successive overlaps of the membrane.
  • Fix Platon Top Edge Moulding along the top edge of the membrane to avoid debris or backfill material from blocking the drainage channels.
  • Ensure adequate drainage from PLATON DOUBLE DRAIN to a maintainable land drain at the base of the wall.
