Afitex-Texel releases design guidance for protection from soil gas infiltration

September 6th, 2017 / By: / Industry News, News

Originally published in French by Groupe Alphard Inc. and translated and updated by Afitex-Texel, the resource “Design Guidance Document for the Protection of Buildings Against Soil Gas Infiltrations” is now available. The document discusses DRAINTUBE™ technology, a product that combines geosynthetic and pipe technology.

Engineers have used DRAINTUBETM on hundreds of projects around the world. Afitex-Texel manufactures the product to adapt to project-specific hydraulic characteristics and soil properties. DRAINTUBETM combines the separating and filtering performance of geotextiles with the drainage ability of perforated pipes. The purpose of the new document is to describe the collection and evacuation of underground gases with DRAINTUBETM for building protection.
