Nonwoven needled geocomposite, designed for horizontal drainage, mainly used for civil engineering works

Made of polypropylene and polyester, Drainatex is used for drainage.

Drainatex geocomposite eliminates hydrostatic suppression beneath the road surface and accelerates the evacuation of infiltrated water towards the Draincotex vertical drainage elements.

Drainatex maintains a much higher hydraulic transmissivity than the in situ soil, even with the weight of the roadway, due to its durable composition and high mechanical strength.

Our Recommendation

Soleno recommends the use of the Drainatex geocomposite for the following applications:

Drainage function:

  • Permanent public roadway
  • Road widening
  • Airport runways
  • Slab and building foundation
  • Road and highway drainage


For catch basins and concrete manholes protection against freeze-thaw cycles, and to promote and accelerates water drainage from infrastructures while ensuring the separation of layers of granular materials, Soleno Textile recommends the combined use of 3 geocomposites; TX-MP, Drainatex and Draincotex.
