Drainage for earth retaining structures and bridge abutments

Improved drainage to manage loading and movements on the rear of the structure

Enkadrain geocomposite drainage layers instead of a granular fill offers a variety of benefits, including preventing water build-up behind conventional retaining structures and bridge abutments, so reducing damage.

Enkadrain relieves pressure caused by water build-up. Additionally, using Enkadrain with one or two filter layers decreases humidity in the concrete.

Enkadrain secures the stability of the earth-retaining structure, by draining off destabilising water flows.

An Enkadrain geocomposite layer can replace the granular fill behind the structure.

OUR SOLUTION
Enkadrain gecomposite layer

Enkadrain gecomposite layer

  • Cheaper than granular fill layer.
  • Fewer raw materials required, so more environmentally friendly.
  • No intrusion of fine grained soil particles in the drainage layer.
  • Drainage core with a consistent 95% void.
  • Uniform movement of water in all directions.
  • Creates air layer between soil and wall to decrease humidity.
  • Quicker installation than granular fill layer.
FUNCTIONS
  • Drainage by prefabricated screens.
  • Filtration.
  • Separation.
  • Protection.
