Product Information

ProDrain® SD Series Strip Filter Drains are prefabricated drainage composites for the efficient filtering of groundwater. All Strip Drain drainage cores are encapsulated with a high flow geotextile that prevents long term blockage of the drain core by excluding the ingress of fine soil particles. The core is made from HDPE polymer combined with a PP/PET geotextile. Both polymers are inert to a wide range of acids and alkalis likely to be found in a soil environment.

Benefits of ProDrain® Strip Filter Drains:

  • lightweight, making it easy to store, handle and install
  • available in a variety of sizes to suit your application
  • geotextile outer layer, prevents particles from clogging the drain
  • dimpled core allows for high flow water levels
  • properties- high strength, durabilty and excellent bond qualities
  • cost effective alternative to rigid drains and edge drains

Application

ProDrain SD Strip Filter Drains are designed for applications of :

  • subsoil drainage as road edge drains,
  • sports field broad acre drainage,
  • vertical drainage components in cut face applications (behind facing systems such as shotcrete) and as a drainage collection system at the base of retaining walls.

ProDrain® Strip Filter Drainage systems provide more efficient drainage capacities than imported natural materials such as crushed aggregate and conventional pipe systems. The ProDrain prefabricated drainage products are lightweight, easy to handle and install, providing a more cost effective method of drainage than traditional methods. ProDrain SD Series Strip Filter Drains require minimal trench excavation and come in a wide selection of depths for a variety of applications and site conditions

We also offer a complete range of purpose designed strip filter fittings that are complimentary to the strip filter drainage products and allow the greatest use of the product in a variety of inlet, outlet and maintenance applications that the ProDrain® strip filter product may be used.
