MacDrain® C is a drainage geocomposite (GCD) for planar drainage. It is made by bonding a drainage core material with one filtering non-woven geotextile that may also be working as separation or protecting layer. The composite is waterproof as the core material is manufactured from an extruded high density polyethylene membrane with a raised stud profile.
MacDrain® M is a drainage geocomposite (GCD) for planar drainage. It is made by thermobonding a three-dimensional drainage mat of extruded polymer monofilaments between two filtering geotextiles that may also perform as separation or protecting layers. The three-dimensional core of the mat has a biconical cuspated shape.
MacDrain® N is a drainage geocomposite for planar drainage. It is made by thermobonding an HDPE geonet drainage core between a polyethylene membrane film and a non-woven geotextile and performs as a separation, filtration and protection layer. The geonet drainage core is formed by two sets of parallel ribs overlaying each other and integrally connected to produce a net of rhomboidal shaped apertures.
MacDrain® W is a drainage geocomposite for planar drainage. It is made by thermobonding athree-dimensional drainage core of extruded monofilaments between two filtering non-woven geotextiles that may also be working as separation or protecting layers. The three-dimensional drainage core of the mat has a “W” configuration of longitudinal parallel channels.
MacDrain® TD is a drainage geocomposite (GCD) for vertical drainage of trenches or similar. It is made by thermobonding a three-dimensional drainage mat of extruded polymer monofilaments between two filtering geotextiles that may also perform as separation or protecting layers. The three-dimensionale of the mat has a biconical cuspated shape. The lower edge of the MacDrain® TD roll has an extended geotextile pocket into which a polymer collection pipe can be installed on-site, to rapidly form a trench drainage system.
This solution is often used alongside highways and railways to provide long-term reliable vertical drainage capacity.
Maccaferri MacDrain® V is a drainage geocomposite for soil consolidation works especially to improve soft moisture laden ground prior to construction works.
These thin strips of geocomposite, sometimes known as “wick drains” are inserted (typically) vertically into the soil, where they reduce the pore water drainage path to release water pressures, thereby accelerating the consolidation of the soils.
MacDrain® Arctic Blanket is the drainage system designed to prevent to prevent groundwater capillary rise and frost heave. It consists of a W-shaped geomat core embedded between two geotextile layers: a nonwoven geotextile with hydrophobic polymer enhancement (bottom side) and a high resistant nonwoven geotextile with enhanced drainage (top side).
