Concrete Canvas (CC) has been used in the defence sector since 2007 for a range of reinforcement, protection and erosion control applications. For some specific examples of applications see:
• Gabion Capping
• Ditch lining
• Bund Lining
The speed and ease of installation means CC is the ideal construction material for time critical projects in remote locations with limited resources. CC is available in man-portable rolls allowing concreting work to be conducted in areas without plant equipment.
CC lined ditches are tamper proof and the non-metallic construction will not interfere with IED detection. CC is extremely materially efficient, vastly reducing the logistical footprint compared to conventional construction materials.
Existing users of CC in the Defence sector include:
• UK Ministry of Defence
• Australian Air Force
• Royal Netherlands Army
• Swedish Armed Forces
