    Driwall™ Prefabricated Composite Drain 10/025


    A beautiful apartment building in Albuquerque, New Mexico completed production in September, 2017 and is now open for business!

    When people are on the lookout for an apartment, one amenity that is usually required in their search is a balcony or deck. Sitting out on the balcony on a nice day, enjoying a hot cup of coffee is something most people look forward to, and you certainly wouldn’t want to ruin that with unwanted moisture build up after a rainy night, would you?

    To avoid this issue, Keene Building Products’ Driwall Prefabricated Composite Drain 10/025 was chosen as the solution for this project. 

    Driwall™ Prefabricated Composite Drain products are drainage mats designed to eliminate hydrostatic pressure from behind foundation walls, retaining walls, planters, plaza decks, and balconies. A filter fabric is heat-laminated to one side of the mat to hold soil or concrete away from the wall or deck and keep the drainage plane clear. When using Driwall™ Prefabricated Composite Drain, aggregate for drainage can be eliminated from the construction site.

    There are many benefits to using Driwall™ Prefabricated Composite Drain products. It is an easy to install solution that provides a thin profile for tight construction assemblies. For this apartment, Driwall™ Prefabricated Composite Drain 10/025 was used on all of the building’s decks and corridors to prevent any moisture damage and hydrostatic pressure. By applying this product, the drainage plane will be kept clear so that the balcony can properly drain any excess water, making it safe and dry for proper use.
