Dorken Systems has introduced DELTA-TERRAXX and DELTA-TERRAXX PLUS, new drainboard systems for horizontal, vertical and blindside drainage requirements.
“Conventional drainboards have been commoditized in North America,” said Dorken Systems product and marketing manager Peter Barrett. “That has led to cost-cutting efforts by manufacturers, which has resulted in cheaper geotextiles and limited performance. And we are seeing more incidents of clogging as a result. There have been no innovations or new solutions for architects to choose from for quite some time. We want to change that with our DELTA-TERRAXX products.”
With DELTA-TERRAXX products, building professionals have an option that can meet building code requirements and urban water management standards.
DELTA-TERRAXX and DELTA-TERRAXX PLUS offers a balance of compressive strength, drainage performance and handling.
The TYPAR geotextile bonded to a dimple sheet allows for drainage capacity. The quality geotextile withstands heavy structural loads, backfill or soil overburden, meaning the drainage space won’t clog and drainage capacity stays steady.
DELTA-TERRAXX PLUS has a self-adhering edge tab, making installation consistent. Installers roll out the sheets and stick them together, all in a couple of steps. DELTA-TERRAXX PLUS also comes in large rolls; large spaces are covered with less ballast, creating useable working areas.
