Rapid Installation - CC can be laid at a rate of 200m2/hour, up to 10 times faster than conventional concrete solutions. The speed at which Concrete Canvas can be installed results in reduced line and lane possession for rail and road projects, and the quicker return to operation of assets within the petrochem and utility sectors.
Safe and Easy to Install - Unlike with sprayed solutions, the installation of Concrete Canvas generates no rebound, protecting sensitive surrounding infrastructure, and negating the need to take possession of lines and lanes for slopes adjacent to rail or road assets.
Effective Water Management - The flexibility of CC allows the for the forming of crest and toe drainage channels, as well as encapsulating any slope or cutting, greatly reducing or eliminating water ingress for surface run-or rainfall, which mitigates the risk of deep slip and failure of the embankment.
Long-term Erosion Protection - CC is twice as abrasion resistant as standard OPC concrete, has excellent chemical resistance, good weathering performance and will not degrade in UV.
Reduced Future Maintenance - The material also provides effective weed suppression, greatly reducing the requirement for de-vegetation and maintenance, reducing life cycle costs and reducing health and safety risk on hazardous site locations.
