In October 2017, Concrete Canvas® GCCM* (CC) was used to line a channel at the side of the Three Arch Bridge which runs over the rail line in Sherborne, Somerset. The purpose of the channel was to divert surface water runoff from farmers fields away from an embankment that had previously slipped due to saturation.

The works were carried out by Suttle Projects on behalf of Osborne, for Network Rail, with input and Consultation provided by from Arcadis, who specified CC as a robust channel lining solution that would require minimal future maintenance.

The project was carried out in two stages to suit the site programme – this project was carried out alongside a larger project which was required to reinstate an embankment which failed during a storm event.

CONCRETE CANVAS PATENT SUCCESS AS PRELIMINARY INJUNCTION AGAINST EUROBENT/TILTEX™ UPHELD BY APPEAL COURT.


02 JULY 2018

In April, a Polish court issued a preliminary injunction against Eurobent Sp.zo.o – the manufacturer of Tiltex™ (a cement/sand filled GCL product marketed as a GCCM*) – to refrain from infringement of Concrete Canvas Technology Ltd.’s patent PL/EP 2027319.

The court of appeal in Wroclaw has rejected the appeal by Eurobent Sp.z o.o and upheld the preliminary injunction to refrain from infringement of Concrete Canvas Technology Ltd.’s patent.

The fine for non-compliance remains amongst the highest on record set by a Polish court for a case of this type.

Concrete Canvas wish to reiterate that they will seek to enforce their intellectual property rights where they have grounds to believe that they are being infringed by a manufacturer, distributor or otherwise.
