Drainage Cells – Applications, Benefits and others
Drainage Cell Systems offer a perfect solution for sub-soil drainage applications that create a successful Roof Garden without the fear of the conventional problems that are associated with cracking or leakage. A uniform surface along with an internal void space for effective draining of excess water is provided by the drainage cells. They are available with a unique Diamond CUP structure that offers water retention for passive irrigation and helps to build a perch water table in the soil above profile for the vegetation to flourish in prolonged dry seasons.
Drainage Cells are mainly made up of recycled polypropylene and are inert to soil-borne bacteria and chemicals. Nero cells shadow and effective drainage profile help landscapers for making the use of mature plants on roof gardens that require soil depth and water retention properties. During high summer temperatures, thermal expansion can occur in concrete which can cause the waterproofing to crack. Drainage cell systems because of their unique design and void properties help this heat to escape and ultimately reduce the risk of cracking which enhances the life of the building.
The perfect drainage capability drains excess water at the optimum rate while retaining the most favorable moisture level. This promotes plant growth in planter box and roof garden applications.
- They are very lightweight making it easy to lift and install.
- Specifically designed for drainage-critical applications such as planter boxes and roof gardens.
- These drainage cells can be installed horizontally and vertically and are easily customizable to meet project specifications.
- These products are quicker to install and manage than traditional drainage systems.
- No water clogging, sufficient space.
- The product has been made resistant to biological and other contaminants.

Dutco Tennant LLC suggests its customers about using Drainage Cells for creating an exceptionally effective drainage pathway. Our offered Drainage Cells are high-density polyethylene tile which works as a permanent non-clogging void among the concrete slab and overlying soil. They are ideal for drainage in rooftop gardens and planter boxes as the strong HDPE will not get collapsed or distorted. Moreover, the flexible 500mm square tiles also make way for installation in several configurations. Each of the tiles is 30mm high and has a 95% internal void area with a 67% surface void area. This means that the direct flow of water to the designated outlets can occur by avoiding the build-up of water and penetration. The large surface and capacity void space make way for superior drainage efficiency. Again, the small voids which are created by gravel are much less efficient. The lightweight drainage cells significantly reduce weight on the structure by around 98% in comparison with gravel. In this application, you can also use an additional drainage filtration layer. When it is laid on top of the drainage cell, it offers a highly effective filtration barrier for presenting the soil from getting in and clogging the drainage cells. We have excellent staple fiber geotextile which can be used for filtration & drainage. It is mainly used in trenches, raised gardens as a stockpile cover and behind retaining walls. It forms an amazing barrier in subsoil; filtering and temporary erosion control.
