Integrated Drainage System

Product Overview

AGRU America’s Integrated Drainage System (IDS) features an AGRU structured geomembrane, Super Gripnet® or MicroDrain® Liner, overlain with an AGRUTex® geotextile. Simply place soil on top of the geotextile to complete the system. The greatest performing and most versatile of the traditional methods, the IDS system can feature an aggressive texturing on the underside of the Super Gripnet® geomembrane providing unmatched shear strength and stability even on steepened slope applications.

The studded top surface is covered with a nonwoven geotextile to prevent soil infiltration and to create the drainage layer. The bottom Super Gripnet surface provides maximum interface friction and a high factor of safety against sliding. With lower material, shipping, and installation costs, IDS can be a much more economical option for closure systems than conventional geomembrane/drainage composites.
