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 petrochemical and utility sectors.

Safe and easy to install - unlike sprayed solutions, the installation of Concrete Canvas generates no rebound, protects sensitive surrounding infrastructure, and reduces 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 formation of crest and toe drainage channels. CC adapts closely to any slope or cutting, reducing or eliminating water ingress for surface run-off 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, reducing the requirement for de-vegetation and maintenance, reducing life cycle costs and health and safety risks.

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.
