Use & Purpose
Global Synthetics provides a complete range of geo-composite drainage products and systems for complete point source water management. Global Synthetics drainage products and systems manages stormwater as a resource and enhances the social and environmental amenity of the urban landscape. Global Synthetics drainage products are lightweight and efficient to install. The products are a replacement for traditional aggregate drainage treatments.
Global Synthetics provide a range of prefabricated fin drains wrapped in geotextile that provides the designer with the opportunity to minimise trench widths whilst maintaining efficient flowpaths. Global Synthetics edge drains provide a very positive intercept to the infiltration of water to the pavement. PaveDrain® edge drains come in a variety of width of product and depth of product. These edge drains are widely used in highway drainage applications throughout the world.
PaveDrain® is a proprietary product consisting of a flexible geocomposite plastic strip filter cuspated core encased in a geotextile filter forming part of the structural composite. Pavedrain® core is manufactured from virgin HDPE that has proven to be a long lasting durable polymer over decades of construction use. The core has a cuspated profile for the efficient discharge of water whilst maintaining good structural integrity during placement and service conditions. The core has high compressive strength with minimal deflection under load.
