1.1 This guide makes recommendations for the selection and application of prefabricated drainage media used in conjunction with waterproofing systems on horizontal and vertical surfaces. Drainage media considered include rigid and semi-rigid insulation boards and rigid materials including plastics. This guide considers drainage media as it relates to the performance of the waterproofing system, so its primary focus is draining water away from the membrane. This guide does not cover in detail other aspects or functions of drainage system performance such as efficiency of soil dewatering. The scope of this guide does not cover other drainage media including gravel and filter fabric systems that can be constructed. The scope of this guide does not cover drainage materials or drainage system designs used for vegetative roof systems. Vegetative roof systems require specialized designs.
1.2 The committee with jurisdiction over this standard is not aware of any other comparable standards published by other organizations.
1.3 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
1.4 This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations and equipment. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
