Besides use in drainage systems on personal plots a drainage mat will actively be applied in construction of pipelines, roads, tunnels and underground designs, to utilization of dangerous industrial wastes, in a wall drainage, as the reinforcing layer in the filtering system, etc.
So, we will consider what main advantages drainage systems of garden sites with use of a drainage mat have:
- Material possesses fine physicomechanical characteristics: durability (is exposed to insignificant deformations), resistance to chemical influences, anti-corrosion, not toxicity.
- Profitability: this drainage system has the same water capacity, as well as a crushed stone layer in 10-15 cm. The weight of one roll of 45 kg, - instead of one roll to be necessary for comparison for 25 t of crushed stone.
- The loadings or well carried out works on an utrambovyvaniye influencing the soil reduce the water capacity of a drainage mat.
Drainage mats on a personal plot are used in the following drainage systems:
In a wall drainage for protection of the base of the building and a waterproofing. Water, having approached construction walls, can flood basements and do harm to concrete designs that it did not happen it is necessary to organize a drainage system.
In a drainage of garden paths and sports grounds. The drainage systems of garden sites equipped on the basis of a drainage mat take away excess moisture and strengthen soil. They need to be spread out to surfaces and to cover from above with a sand layer in 10 cm, then to level and lay a road or lawn covering.
