TerraMaxx® DS

the first capillary passive drainage paving support system

TerraMaxx® DS


The first capillary passive drainage support system
for raised coverings in natural stone or concrete.

TerraMaxx® DS is the first capillary drainage paving support system. Loose-laid tiles are laid at points using drainage/single grain mortar on TerraMaxx® DS. The 100% raising of drainage mortar on TerraMaxx® DS reduces capillary rising water and therefore also reduces damp stains in the covering area of natural stone and concrete. Height adjustment rings make for easy laying - even on uneven seals.

Special height adjustment rings act as casings for the mortar. These adjustment rings, 27 or 50 mm in height, can be stacked on top of one another without any problems. The height can thereby be adjusted by up to 100 mm. This also makes it easy to adjust the fall of the covering.
