Draintex is a standard duty, non-woven drainage geotextile fabric with excellent drainage and filtration properties. This drainage geotextile fabric has a stable but open structure making it ideal for lining trenches when constructing land (French) drains. Draintex acts as a filter membrane, separating the aggregate from the soil, thus preventing the aggregate from mixing with the soil and reducing the efficiency and capacity of the drain.
Draintex is also used for wrapping soakaway and water attenuation crates in both small, domestic projects and large, commercial projects. The high permeability of the fabric means water can percolate through whilst preventing the soakaway becoming ‘silted’ up. Draintex can be used as a ground stabilisation membrane beneath MOT Type 1 or hardcore to form a stable base in many hard landscaping and civil engineering applications.
NB must be covered within 24 hours of laying. It is not suitable for weed control applications due to the size of the holes.
Rolls available:4.5 x 11.1m (50 sq.m), 4.5 x 100m (450 sq.m)
Ideal for drainage, driveways and pavements.

We provide home deliveries direct to your door in loose loads, small and bulk bags.

Deliveries to addresses in the wider UK are made by pallet carrier and therefore curb side delivery only can be guaranteed.
Whilst drivers are requested to do their best to deliver as close to the property as access allows it is not possible to move pallets over loose or uneven surfaces such as gravel or grass. We therefore recommend you check before ordering. We are not able to carry materials from the delivery point.
