Basement Drainage Systems

Platinum Chemicals supply a wide range of Basement Drainage Products including Perimeter 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 basement Drainage Conduit Channels and Ancillaries which include Wykamol's WaterGuard Channel, Platon's Aqua Channel & Newton's Basedrain Channel, as well as a range of Sump / Pump Systems designed for use in below ground structures to control water ingress.

Wykamol Waterguard Drainage Channel System

Wykamol Waterguard Perimeter Drainage Channel is a PVC Drainage conduit specifically designed for the control of water ingress in below ground situations when using the Wykamol Range of Waterproof Membranes.

It is installed at the vulnerable wall / floor junction to the soil retaining walls or, around the perimeter of the floor slab to be used in most waterproofing situations, and is particularly suited for use in conjunction with Wykamol Cavity Drain Membrane Systems.

Water entering the building through the walls is controlled behind the Wykamol Membrane and diverted to the perimeter channel at the base of the wall. The water enters the perimeter channel through predrilled drainage holes and must then be diverted to a suitable drainage point, either natural or mechanical, the perimeter drainage is set dead level and not to falls.

Platon Aqua Channel Drainage System

Designed to be used in conjunction with Platon Waterproof Membranes, Platon 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.

Newton Basedrain Drainage Channel System

Similar to the Channel Systems mentioned above, the Newton Basedrain is the drainage system used most commonly within the Newton Range of Waterproof Membranes.

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 Wykamol Waterguard Channel, Platon Aqua Channel and Newton Basedrain Drainage System parts are NOT recommended for use in conjunction with each other.

External Drainage Membranes

An External Drainage Membrane is a two-core drainage sheet consisting of a non-woven geotextile filter layer thermally welded to a water impermeable HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) drainage membrane.

External Drainage Membranes provide outstanding drainage and protection to the outside face of basement walls to sloping sites, preventing the build-up of water pressure and protecting the structure from aggressive water, chemicals and toxins.

We stock 3 types of External Drainage Membranes in our Range

  • Platinum GT8 GeoTex Membrane: A High Quality, 8mm Stud, External Basement Drainage Membrane comprising of an 8mm studded HDPE Membrane and a non-woven geotextile. Platinum GT8 GeoTex Membrane is designed to manage water to the land drain, relieving pressure from the structure.

  • Newton 410 Geodrain: A Premium Quality, 10mm Stud two-core drainage sheet consisting of a non-woven geotextile filter layer thermally welded to a water impermeable HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) drainage membrane.
