DX Strip Drains

Carthage DX® Series of Strip Drains

Strip drains function similarly to the drain boards, however they are manufactured into long narrow strips that provide a complete drainage system in applications such as highways, athletic fields, and around buildings and homes. A couple of primary benefits strip drains provide is that they reduce the overall volume of water as well as the length of time standing water is present when used in a horizontal application. Another benefit is that the use of strip drains eliminate the need for labor and material intensive excavation of large drainage trenches.

Carthage Mills’ DX-1000 strip drain – available in 6”, 12” & 18” widths – is a modular composite drainage and collection system consisting of a 3-dimensional and high-flow drainage core, which is wrapped with a non-woven filter fabric. It is designed to replace a conventional sand or gravel covered pipe drain around building foundations and retaining walls. Soil particles are held back by the filter fabric allowing water to pass through to the drain core. A full array of fittings are available in the system to allow for a fast and easy installation.

Adhesives that are recommended for installation include: Maxbond Construction Adhesive, H.B. Fuller Co. Plionail, Good-Year Liquid Nails, & Duct Tape.
