Concrete Canvas® (CC) has been used in the rail sector since 2009 and is rapidly establishing itself as the construction material of choice with network providers around the world.
The speed and ease of installing CC means it is well suited to time-critical track-side work, reducing line possession and improving safety. Eliminating issues associated with rebound from shotcrete, and the large plant and equipment required for traditional concreting methods means rail works can continue without line closures. CC is BBA certified with a durability in excess of 120 years when used in erosion control applications.
“This was the first time we had used [Concrete Canvas]… The system itself was simple to install; the speed of which we could install the system was surprising. We are very pleased with the finished product and will continue to work with Concrete Canvas.”
“Using Concrete Canvas at this site had great benefits over conventional methods, with speed of delivery of works and negligible disruption to the local public and road users.”
“I consider CC to be a practical, fast and agile solution, which is easy to install without the need for specialised labour or lane/line possession… Also, the transportation, the finishing and cleaning of the work site and its surrounding area was superior to the alternatives.”
“The installations at Fosse Way set the benchmark for all future Concrete Canvas channel lining works.”
“We were impressed with how easy it was to install the Concrete Canvas. The product is ideal for restricted access projects such as this as we could transport the material by hand. It would have been extremely difficult to repair this flume using other methods.”
““The second day, when we came back to the site, we were amazed – the CC was hard and in place, we could not believe it.””
“The speed at which we can install it and the fact that it can be laid in the rain means we can get in and out of sites quickly and provide Network Rail with a cost effective concrete solution in conditions and geographies that would be difficult if not impossible to do with conventional concrete options.”
“Great first impression, we’ve not used it before but would definitely do so again. It’s easy to apply and doesn’t require any complex methods: you just need to put it in place and add water. There are so many different applications for it, I will definitely be using it on future projects.”
“Concrete Canvas is a great solution as a viable alternative to below ground piped drainage for many crest drain applications. CC allows for long runs of effective crest drainage which is readily maintainable and prevents newly profiled ditches from overgrowing with vegetation, which in turn offers a cost effective solution for our Client.”
