Findrain is designed on the same basic tested and proven principles as other
Enkadrain products, except that, with Enkadrain Findrain, the flexible
three-dimensional drainage core is wholly enclosed in a heat bonded nonwoven
filter. The edges are thermally sealed to prevent the inflow of silt particles.
The filter is connected to the drainage core by means of thermal bonding over
the entire surface or by spot welding.
Enkadrain Findrain is provided with a cord to simplify in-situ insertion of the
pipe (not included) into the Findrain; product types are available to suit a
range of drainpipe sizes. Enkadrain Findrain is an accepted alternative to
expensive and time-consuming capillary layers (graded particle mineral or
textile filters and gravel fill) for the collection of water. The mats are
installed vertically into the soils to be drained. Once installed, Enkadrain
Findrain collects the seepage water and transports it longitudinally to the
transverse discharge pipes or outfalls. Reducing pore water pressure and
allowing excess water to flow off into the drainpipe in a controlled manner will
help to avoid slope and hydraulic soil collapses.
Used in roadside verge drainage, Enkadrain Findrain serves for safe water run
off and prevents the mineral road sub base being weakened by capillary water
In agricultural water management, Enkadrain Findrain can be used to drain
surface water run-off without the need for open ditches which would reduce the
area available for cultivation, and create the ideal water-air ratio in the
porous areas of the soil.
Enkadrain Findrain can be installed in narrow open trenches that are then
refilled with the excavated material. A trenching machine is all that is needed
for installation in many cases. Enkadrain Findrain reduces the trench width
required to be excavated, and hence the volume of soil considerably over
conventional drain trenches adding to the reasons justifying the use of
