ARDEX DRS 10/18 GC is a dimpled plastic sheet that provides effective drainage and waterproof membrane protection on foundation walls and other underground structures. The integrated non-woven geotextile covering the dimples prevents soil particles blocking the drainage sheet, creates an air gap for reliable ventilation and allows inflow and with its dimple structure effectively captures and transports high water volumes and resists high loads from earth and formwork.
ARDEX DRS 10/18 GC performs a multi-faceted role by providing protection for waterproofing systems and managing sub-surface water around building foundations. Soil backfill is retained by a filter fabric while allowing water to pass into the drainage core providing hydrostatic relief. Collected water is then conveyed to a proper collection system.
Installed either vertically or horizontally
Held in place by either taping, nailing, gluing or simply overhanging over the wall while backfilling takes place
Installed with the geotextile facing the backfill
Joined by simply butting edge to edge and overlapping the geotextile overhang and securing with reinforced canvas tape. Alternatively overlap the cuspate core by 50mm and secure geotextile as previous
Backfill with free draining fill taking care not to disturb or damage the ARDEX DRS 10/18 GC
