Externally applied water management system, used to protect and drain the basement or structure.
RIW Double Drain is a cold applied impermeable high density polyethylene profiled sheet incorporating a permeable geotextile filter fabric designed to prevent ground water reaching a structure and enhance the performance of the waterproof membranes. It can be used in conjunction with a primary waterproofing system or on its own to isolate the structure from the surrounding soil and relieve hydrostatic pressure by promoting the flow of ground water away from the face of the structure to land drainage. The product is CE marked and can also be used to provide excellent protection to a primary waterproofing system against backfilling and mechanical damage.
Not to be used as a primary membrane.
Fixing to vertical/ sloping surfaces:
70 mm overlaps, with geotextile fabric-patch bonded with bonding tape.
Prevents ground water reaching structure; Isolates structure from surrounding earth; Eliminates necessity for granular backfill; High drainage capacity; High impact resistance, providing protection to the primary membrane
