Miradrain 6000: Waterproofing Drain Board
Miradrain 6000 is a high-strength drainage composite made up of a non woven filter fabric that is bonded to the individual dimples of a molded polypropylene core to minimize fabric intrusion into the flow channels caused by backfill pressure. The filter fabric also prevents the passage of soil particles into the core, while allowing water to pass freely. Miradrain 6000 is designed for use in high-flow, high-compressive-strength, vertical drainage applications where single-sided subsurface drainage is needed. Miradrain also serves as protection course over CCW waterproofing membranes. The flat side of Miradrain fits snugly against wall surfaces, making this product ideal for foundation walls, retaining walls, bridge abutments, and similar structures. Questions? Contact us
Miradrain 6000 prefabricated drainage panels maybe installed in a variety of construction applications. They may be
installed against retaining walls, foundation walls (both waterproofed and non-waterproofed), lagging systems and buttress/landfills. Miradrain 6000 can be cut with a utility knife or scissors. Slurries, shotcrete or concrete may be placed directly onto either side of the panels. The panels can terminate at the top of the footing and are flexible enough to form right angles to cover the top of the footing. MiraDRAIN eliminates the need for a protection course
over waterproofing systems. Native soils can be used over MiraDRAIN. (Contact your local CCW representative for specific guidelines). For standard installation details, follow the MiraDRAIN detail drawings. For non-standard installation instructions contact your local CCW representative.
The MiraDRAIN panel can be installed in rows or columns with the fabric side toward the soil. Each method has its advantages depending on the criteria of the project as to which method is best
When installing the CCW MiraDRAIN in rows:
1. Place the longitudinal edge of the core against the wall so that it is flush with the wall footing.
2. Attach subsequent panels in shingle fashion with fabric overlap at bottom, placing the longitudinal edge of the upper panel over the flanged longitudinal edge of the lower panel and lap fabric from upper panel over lower panel.
