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.

Safe and easy to install - CC is available in man portable rolls for applications with limited access. The concrete is pre-mixed so there is no need for mixing, measuring or compacting on site.

Requires minimal maintenance - CC provides excellent weed suppression, preventing the growth of root growing vegetation which cause the majority of blockages and restricted flows in channels. CC also effectively encapsulates a channel’s profile, reducing or eliminating silt generation and maintaining the hydraulic capacity of the channel.

Long-term scour protection - CC is twice as abrasion resistant as standard OPC concrete, has excellent chemical resistance, good weathering performance and will not degrade in UV.

Prepare the substrate so that surfaces are well compacted, geotechnically stable with a smooth, uniform surface.

It is important to ensure that the CC is jointed at every overlap between layers and that those layers are fixed to the substrate.

It is important to prevent water or wind ingress between the CC and the substrate, both around the perimeter of the installation and along the joints.

It is important to properly hydrate CC, using enough water for the quantity of material used and allowing for drying conditions.
