4. Main advantages of Drainage Cell Panels
Drainage cell panels offer a comprehensive solution for effective water management, structural protection, and improved construction performance. Their versatility, strength, and easy installation make them a valuable choice for a wide range of applications. Drainage cell panels offer several main advantages that make them a preferred choice in various applications:
4.1 Efficient Water Discharge
The installation of drainage cell panels enables quick and effective drainage of rainwater. This reduces or eliminates hydrostatic pressure on the waterproof layer. The active water guiding principle of drainage cells promotes effective waterproofing.
4.2 Versatile Functionality of Drainage cell panels
When combined with geotextile, drainage cell panels offer multiple functions such as drainage, waterproofing, ventilation, moisturizing, and partitioning. This versatility allows for comprehensive solutions in various construction scenarios.
4.3 Lightweight and High Strength of Drainage cell panels
Drainage cell panels are lightweight, making them easy to handle and transport. Despite their light weight, they possess high structural strength, ensuring durability and stability in demanding conditions.
4.4 Moisture Insulation and Heat Insulation
The multiple fulcrums of drainage cell panels create a gap between the building surface layer and the structural layer. This arrangement provides moisture insulation, drainage, and heat insulation capabilities, enhancing the overall performance of the construction.
4.5 Protection of Structural and Waterproof Layers
One of the key benefits of drainage cell panels is their ability to effectively protect the structural layer and the waterproof layer of a construction project. By preventing damage to these crucial elements, the longevity and integrity of the building and waterproofing system are ensured.
4.6 Effective Water Discharge
The design of drainage cell panels includes large and small pivots along the edges. These pivots can interlock with each other, creating a continuous slope. This design allows for efficient and timely discharge of excess water, even under heavy water leakage conditions.
4.7 Simple Construction and Transportation
Drainage cell panels are designed for ease of use in construction projects. They are simple to install and transport, saving time and effort during the construction process.
Drainage cell is a widely used geotechnical material for water drainage applications. The drainage cell panels have a lightweight three-dimensional structure and is pressed on the underground structure (such as basement wall or underground foundation) for groundwater management. The drainage cell is specially produced with a flat back, which can form a permanent, non-clogging gap between the concrete slab and the soil profile. Compared with the small voids created by the use of geocells, the void space of the drainage cell can achieve superior drainage efficiency. The pressure of the backfilled soil holds the drainage unit in place.
