Maccaferri ParaDrain® is a unique and new generation of geogrid, combining reinforcement and drainage functions in one product. It has been specially developed for the reinforcement of slopes constructed from poorly draining backfill. The product has successfully been used for the reinforcement of marginal fill materials.
ParaDrain® geogrids are planar structures consisting of a biaxial array of composite geosynthetic strips. The strips comprise of a core of high tenacity polyester tendons encased in a polyethylene sheath. The longitudinal strips have a channel profile, which has a geotextile filter strip laminated to it. This forms an open channel for the drainage of water contained within soils.
