Drainage Cells Underground

  • Install 1” Drainage Cells underground wrapped in Geotextile fabric in landscape and traffic areas
  • Easy male/female clipping system
  • Unconfined Compressive Strength of 306.8 PSI
  • Lightweight – ships in panels of 4 connected pieces
  • 100% Recycled Polypropylene

Green Roofs

1” Drainage Cells are used as the drainage layer for green roofs. The Cells provide a permanent void space that efficiently drain excess water, hold small amounts of water in pockets, and provide an open air space that keeps the soil and roof cooler.

Retaining Walls

Eco-Rain 1” Drainage Cells provide a permanent, sturdy (306.8 psi) true void space that eliminates hydrostatic pressure against the retaining wall.
