Plati-Drain® Horizontal Drainage

WATER SATURATION BECAUSE OF HEAVY RAINFALL AND INSUFFICIENT DRAINAGE, LEADS TO THE SOFTENING OF CLAY SOILS WITHIN SLOPES AND INCREASES HYDRAULIC FORCES BEHIND EARTH RETAINING STRUCTURES.

Plati-Drain® is a unique solution that reduces pore water pressure within clay slopes and behind retaining walls. Unlike conventional weep holes, Plati-Drain provides deep penetration which can be in excess of 10m. It can also help prevent shallow or deep-seated slope failures.

Plati-Drain is available as a passive or active solution.

The passive system uses a sacrificial anchor head to drive the Plati-Drain into its optimum position providing an immediate channel for water to drain.

The active system has an additional wire tendon attached to the anchor which allows it to be load locked, providing simultaneous draining and restraining capability.

Plati-Drain® is a registered trade market of Platipus Ltd registered in UK.
