Concrete Canvas (CC) is rapidly becoming the ditch lining material of choice for engineers and contractors around the world. CC is typically 10 times faster to install than conventional concrete solutions, with installation speeds of up to 200sqm/hr possible with only a 3 man crew for a longitudinal layup.
CC provides a ditch lining solution which is fast, easy and cost effective to install, other key advantages include:
- Environmental: CC has a low alkaline reserve, a low washout rate and a low carbon footprint, characteristics that mean it has been approved for use on large projects by the Environment Agency Biodiversity team.
- Improved Safety: Less time required on site. Less vehicle movements. Manual handling issues associated with slab lining are eliminated.
- Durable: CC has double the wear resistance of standard OPC and has passed over 200 cycles of freeze-thaw testing giving it a minimum design life of 50 years in a UK climate.
- Heavy Plant not Required: CC5 and CC8 are available in 60kg and 70kg man-portable batched rolls. Haulage routes for concrete wagons not required.
