Phillips introduces new edge drain system.

A new variation on an established theme offers flexibility in new geotextile applications

A drainage product with high flow and a unique design has been introduced by Phillips Fibers, Greenville, SC. The "Supac ED (Edge Drain)" product, an extension of its Supac engineered geotextile line, drains water away from critical areas in a variety of different applications.

The product, which was introduced last month, has application in various end uses including gravel roads, golf courses and recreation fields, parks and commercial landscaping areas, highways and county roads, landfills and other areas of excessive subsurface flow.

The new Supac product is actually a composite made up of a polyethylene core of narrow pipes wrapped in Phillips' Supac UV resistant material. The product has a small series of pipes with perforations for fluid to migrate through the system. The holes are small enough to keep fine materials out, but allow fluid to pass. The narrow pipes require only a small amount of digging as compared to larger drainage systems.

The edge drain system is substantially cheaper than conventional French drain systems and provides four different types of connectors for side outlets and end capping. Supac ED is available in 6,12 and 18 inch sizes according to end use.
