Weeping Tile

Cross Country Canada supplies weeping tile for the civil construction and heavy civil industries. Weeping tile can be supplied solid, perforated, and perforated with geotextile sock to filter out fines. The 100mm weeping tile is primarily used on home foundations but is not limited to this application. It can also be used in leachate collection systems; retaining walls, road side drainage and lease perimeter drains. The 100mm weeping tile can be used where ever you need to move a body of water from one place to another. The 150mm weeping tile is also available.

Wick Drains

Wick drains, also known as Prefabricated Vertical Drains (PVD) are prefabricated geotextile filter-wrapped plastic strips with molded channels. Wick Drains are commonly used behind curb and gutter to help remove any excess ground water or surface water that has penetrated through a crack in the concrete. Also can be used in-situ between the subsurface and granular lifts to promote crown or cross-cut drainage, often tied into the catch basin rings.

Foundational/Wall Drains

Composite foundation drains are manufactured from heavy duty polypropylene sheet and are bonded to a nonwoven geotextile.  These drains replace traditional granular drains for concrete wall foundations, concrete bridge abutments and can be used in both vertical and horizontal applications.  These drains come in a variety of net/geotextile combinations dependent on the application.

Arterial roadway construction in North Edmonton, Alberta.

Strip Drains

Strip drain consists of a heavy duty polypropylene sheet cuspated under heat and pressure to form a 3 dimensional, high flow, dimpled drainage core. The core is then wrapped and bonded with a non-woven filter fabric. The filter fabric retains soil or sand particles as well as freshly placed concrete or grout, allowing filtered water to pass into the drainage core. Soil backfill is retained while allowing water to pass into the drainage system providing hydrostatic relief. Collected water is then conveyed to a collection system. The drainage core is chemically resistant and designed for applications where chemical exposure is possible. The 1 inch (25mm) profile design allows for higher venting and flow rates.

Dewatering Bags

Custom dewatering bags are made from 8oz geotextile fabric. They are designed to filter silt laden water from construction sites. As site water is pumped into the bag, sediment is collected by the geotextile fabric, allowing filtered water to pass through. These bags are available in different sizes and are color coated for you convenience.

Siltron installment on Alberta pipeline project.

Pollution Control Fence

Siltron is a new composite silt fence that has been designed to provide the highest level of environmental protection on the market. Siltron is a composed of 3 layers of material which increases overall strength while improving water flow and filtration capabilities.. Siltron also has the added benefit absorbing hydrocarbons and certain heavy metals from runoff water. If there is a specific contaminant that is a problem we have the ability to custom make the fence with different filter media to target specific pollutants. We believe that this product is ideal for sensitive ecological areas that need an added layer protection.
