What is a dimpled membrane?

Dimple membranes are one of the most versatile and effective drainage products on the market. Many have a non-woven geotextile bonded to the dimple side of the membrane that acts as a soil filter, and it’s common for them to be perforated, or “needle punched,” to allow moisture to penetrate.

What is the purpose of dimple board?

An Effective Method of Controlling Water The DRY-UP™ Dimple Board is a very tough and long lasting plastic membrane that prevents moisture from passing through. It is also “dimpled” to allow a wall to breathe, allowing moisture to condensate outward so it falls by gravity to a drainage system.

Which way does dimple board go?

Introducing DMX AG™ Foundation wall The raised dimples go against the wall. The flat tab goes at the top, 1 inch below the grade line. Install concrete nails and approved washers.

How do I install Platon?

Nail one Speedclip to act as a pivot, unroll a 10′ length of Platon, pull the smooth tab tight, tack with another Speedclip and continue until the foundation is wrapped. Platon membrane must extend from finished grade (chalk line) to the top of the footing. Platon can be sawn to height while rolled up.

What is Dimple drain?

Dimpledrain® is a geocomposite drainage core. The structure of the symmetrical cusps, resists the effects of lateral shear which may adversely affect alternative ‘pillar type’ drainage cores. The flat reverse side and top ensure low contact pressure and therefore prevents the creation of point loads.

What is drainage board?

Drainage boards allow water that has reached the walls of a structure to flow harmlessly away. Without drainage boards, water can saturate a building’s walls or pool around its foundation. The board is formed from an impermeable polymeric sheet, which is heated to form a dimpled drainage core.

How do you attach dimple boards to concrete?

  1. Step 1: Clean the footing and snap a chalk line at the finished grade.
  2. Step 2: Unroll the DMX AG™ (dimples against the wall), with the top.
  3. Step 3: Install Concrete Nails and Approved Washers or Quik Plugs.
  4. Step 4: Handle corners and overlaps. (
  5. Step 5: Handle windows and service entrances. (

What is Dimple board made of?

DRY-UP Dimple Board is a dimpled waterproofing membrane made from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) plastic. The dimples in the membrane are 5/16” in height, creating a 5/16” air gap or drainage space between the wall and the back of the membrane.

What is dimpled membrane?

SUPERSEAL Dimpled Membrane is made from tough, long lasting plastic that keeps exterior moisture out. It prevents backfill material from touching the foundation wall and bridges typical wall cracks with ease and can be backfilled right away. The dimples in the membrane create a drainage space that allows the wall to breathe.

What is Dimple board used for in waterproofing?

The “dimples” in the waterproofing membrane allow surface water to fall by gravity and migrate into the drainage system at the footing. The DRY-UP™ Dimple Board is used with the DRY-UP™ Geo Channel at the bottom of the footing to drain water away from exterior basement walls. Use as a Floor Vapor Barrier or Underlayment

How do you backfill a dimpled membrane?

Unroll the membrane, fasten to the wall, and back fill. SUPERSEAL Dimpled Membrane is made from tough, long lasting plastic that keeps exterior moisture out. It prevents backfill material from touching the foundation wall and bridges typical wall cracks with ease and can be backfilled right away.

How much water does a dimple drain board move?

Dimple drain boards can move a tremendous amount of water. Flow rates are usually between 15 to 20 gallons per minute per linear foot of product. Horizontal Applications: The fact that a thin membrane can move water so efficiently is a major advantage when horizontal drainage is needed.
