Cirtex® Wick Drain – Pre-fabricated vertical drains (PVD)

CIRTEX WICK DRAINS CAN BE OF SIGNIFICANT ASSISTANCE IN INCREASING THE SPEED OF CONSOLIDATION OF VERY SOFT SOILS. THIS ULTIMATELY IMPROVES THE SHEAR STRENGTH OF THE SOIL SO THAT AN ENGINEERING STRUCTURE MAY BE CONSTRUCTED QUICKLY.

Cirtex Wick Drain is a specially designed polypropylene core extruded into a unique configuration to transmit maximum water flow on both sides of the core.

The core is fully wrapped in a nonwoven geotextile filter that is ultrasonically welded to maintain effective filtration. The main design advantage of this core structure is the resistance to pinching off flow when distorted under the effects of ground consolidation.

BENEFITS & FEATURES

  • Fully wrapped core preventing delamination onsite
  • Can be spliced onsite
  • Maintains high flow rates when kinked
  • Reduces settlement time
  • Long 300m continuous rolls
  • Comes packaged in UV protected packaging 23 rolls/pallet
  • Robust anchor plates

Montreal Business Park – SecuGrid®

10 Feb 2016

The engineer selected SecuGrid® 40/40 due to its high modulus and low elongation. SecuGrid 40/40 was placed in 4 layers through a 1.2m deep aggregate foundation and allowed compaction of the first layers of aggregate even though the subgrade was incredibly soft. It also prevents lateral spread of aggregate raft foundation in a seismic event.
