Platinum Chemicals supply a wide range of Basement Drainage Products including Drainage Channels (and accessories) and Basement Sump / Pump Systems.
When installing Cavity Drainage Membranes careful attention must be given to provide a suitable drainage solution.
Here you will find a range of Drainage Conduit Channels and ancillaries manufactured by Platon & Newton, as well as a range of Sump / Pump Systems designed for use in below ground structures to control water ingress.
The Triton Aqua Pump is a ready to use complete water control system principally designed for use in below ground structures to control water ingress.
The system consists of a pre-formed polyethylene sump basin, a mains powered 230v submersible pump, a non-return valve assembly and a battery operated high water level alarm, which is linked to an integral float switch.
The Triton Aqua Pump System can be linked to the Drainage Channel System to manage water ingress from retaining walls and in turn pumping out to a suitable drainage point.
Designed to be used in conjunction with a cavity drained system, Triton® Aqua Channel is a PVC drainage conduit which should be fitted around the periphery of an internal floor at the vulnerable wall / floor junction or, when appropriate, offset from the wall.
Any water entering the building through walls or curved soffits is controlled behind the membrane and enters the channel through the pre-drilled 19mm holes before being diverted to the mechanical (Sump and Pump) or natural drainage point.
Similar to the Aqua Channel System mentioned above, the Newton® Basedrain is the drainage system used most commonly within the Newton® System 500 Waterproofing System.
This drainage system compromises a range of products that collectively receive water ingressing at weaknesses within the structure and then discharge the collected water to a Sump / Pump System or safe drainage (drainage that is below the level of the basement floor that cannot back-up or block).
The 18mm holes drilled in both sides of the profile, as well as to the top surface, allows water from beneath the Newton® Fibran XPS 500-C and within the spacer zone to enter the drainage channels more easily.
Please Note: The Platon Aqua Channel and Newton Basedrain Drainage System parts are NOT recommended for use in conjunction with each other.
