Tunnels

In the construction of tunnels and underground structures, GEOSINTEX provides geotextiles which perform two basic functions: the protection of geomembranes and the drainage of water infiltration.

The waterproofing of the tunnel must be accompanied by an effective drainage system to intercept and drain water quickly. With this, the hydrostatic pressures are reduced and the job of waterproofing application is alleviated.

Normally the weight exerted by the fill material on the galleries is high. The excellent compressive behavior of geosynthetic INTERDRAIN added to their low cost and to their quick and easy installation, means that they are the most appropriate solution to every case of artificial tunnel.

Moreover ,thanks to the excellent puncture resistance of our drainage composite INTERDRAIN and our nonwovens geotextiles GEODREN, geomembranes protection is guaranteed
