Enkadrain is a family of composite vertical and horizontal drainage, filtration, pressure relief, and hydrostatic drains. These composite mats made by Low & Bonar have different compressive strength and water flow capabilities depending on the intended application. Enkadrain mats are used for foundation walls, green roofs, and plaza decks.
What is the price of Enkadrain?
Enkadrain drainage composites vary in price due the roll dimensions and physical makeup. They typically cost in the $500-$1,000 range, which is about $2-$3 per square foot and includes the shipping cost. These composite mats can have a geotextile fabric on either one or two sides and vary in thickness and compressive strength.
How to Install Enkadrain
Enkadrain composite mats can be installed vertically or horizontally and in various applications.
The general installation method is to cut the roll to size, lay it on the surface and fasten the product to the surface. Vertical installations may require backfilling them as well.

These polymeric mats offer the very best drainage performance that is far superior to other products on the market. When applying horizontally, they are able to lie completely flat allowing for faster and easier application.
For subsurface drainage, these mats provide an exceptional flow rate and can withstand enormous compression under the heaviest soil pressure.
This line of drainage products come with a polymer drainage core which is thermally spot welded or bonded to a protective separating non-woven filter on one or both sides. The core is either v-shaped or comes with looped filaments that are fused where they cross. As for their properties regarding stiffness, discharge ability or tensile strength, they vary from one product type to another and the same is true regarding the properties of the fleece.
The thickness also varies from 4 to 22mm. The standard mat is available in rolls of 1 and 2 mm widths. The product range also includes fire retardant types.
Upon request, you will be provided with technical data sheets with complete details. Information about specialized Enkadrain types including the CK or Wide mats used for landfills is available on other appropriate product leaflets.
We provide complete design support for all applications.
Low & Bonar's Quality Management System has been approved by the ISO 9001 Quality Management System Standard and certificates are available upon request.
SUDS Soakaways & Porous Pavements Products:
The SUDS approach is the addition of materials for slow run-off, constricted collected water, and managed discharge to either the drainage system, watercourse or into natural soil. Also, geosynthetics synthetic products are used to stabilize terrain and can be used for the construction of many other aspects of SUDS.
The purpose of a soakaway is to effectively hold water as it soaks into the natural soil or to form a pathway to a soil with a higher absorbency, allowing the water to drain freely. Soakaways can be vertical or horizontal. The most popular being the horizontal “milk crate” soakaway placed under the pavement.
Enka-Tex is used to wrap the crates creating a filter to stop the entrance of soil or other elements that can affect the performance of the soakaway. Preventing the entrance of soil and other elements will reduce the need for maintenance. Accessible pavements are used to control water running from the surface to drain in large hard landscaped areas such as vehicle parking areas or concrete cellar roofs. In this case, you need a material that will allow flow underneath the surface to drain the soil or the soakaway. You should consider these mats to maintain flow even from under substantial loads. These mats come with a filtering fleece to prevent any aggregate in the water from entering into the core, Also, the thickness of them will allow for the reduction of force should unexpected levels of water be present so you can manage the flow and discharge.
Why go with these drainage products?
You will experience water escaping from a continuous pathway. These are not only lightweight but very strong, flexible, and easy to install.
These products are ideal for various horizontal drainage projects. Some of the many uses include: roof gardens, green roofs, parking decks, and underground pressure relief.
Enkadrain's superior materials will give you a high compression strength to withstand breaking under the loads. Providing low volume and lightweight, they athe perfect alternative. This material will give you high-flow transfer per unit volume and will perform for a very long time.
Durability & Performance:
These mats are a three-dimensional composition with a drainage core connected to or placed between two non-woven synthetic geotextile fabrics. The drainage core is made from tough, looped synthetic filaments and fused to form a chemically inert, strong, open structural material. It's a very effective way to keep moisture out of buildings and various other structures with below-grade foundations.
Enkadrain is the better alternative to sand and aggregate drains and will never clog. Its geotextile filter fabric will allow water to pass through while preventing soil particles or discharged elements from reaching subsurface walls. Structures will not suffer from foundation cracking and the interior walls will remain free from mold.
They serve as a protective layer to prevent construction equipment, debris, or sharp rocks from harming the waterproofing membrane.
Made of a recycled polypropylene core with fused entangled filaments and geo-composite fabric that is bonded on one or both sides, making them the perfect solution.
Enkadrain is used for many structure's foundations and/or walls and easily adapts to all surface shapes. It offers predictable flow rates and is available in long, wide rolls to save on your installation costs, It protects waterproofing during and after backfill, will not crack or curl, and provides an excellent bonding surface for shotcrete.
