Quicker, easier, safer transportation means are required. Depending on geographical zones, tunnels can be a must to reach your final destination easily. Decades of experience in tunnel constructions with TenCate Polyfelt P have shown that protection geotextiles replaces the need for drainage material around the tunnel lining.
Water is irreplaceable for life and for a great many businesses. It is a guarantee of survival and a scarce resource. Today`s society demands increasingly large volumes of increasingly high-quality water. TenCate Geosyntehtics has had a constant hand in the creation of water management infrastructure. In the last 20 years it has built more than 30 dams of a wide range of types and has used for that purpose the most modern of construction systems. TenCate filtration systems offer optimized hydraulic properties...
Historically, landfills have been the most common method of organized waste disposal and remain so in many places around the world. Landfills are essential applications to ensure long service life and prevent soil pollution. In industrial basins, TenCate protection geotextiles guarantee the protection of the geomembrane against all risks of mechanical damages. A cost effective and environmental friendly solution to sort, treat and recycle waste.
Geotextiles enhance both drainage and lining systems in environmental applications. In the large industry of waste containment, geotextiles are used to protect and cushion landfill liners and landfill capping systems, and they are used as critical components of geocomposites such as geocomposite drains and geosynthetic clay liners. Heavyweight, needle-punched nonwovens are use as cushion/protection for landfill and pond liners to keep adjacent stones in overlying or underlying drainage layers from puncturing the...
The geotextile performs two primary functions when used in the construction of tunnels:-
1. Protection of the linear from abrasion and puncture by protrusions from the base surface of the tunnel well.
2.Drainage of water seeping through the rock and sprayed concrete layer. The in-plane oermeability of the geotextile enables the water to flow to a subsurface drainage collection system. where it is directed awa from the tunne
In urban areas can geotextiles be found in most diverse applications. The geotextiles are being used in access and paved roads, sport fields, riverbed protection, drainage trenches and pond liner protection. The geotextiles are also being used in vertical drainage applications. Groundwater and excess rainwater can be controlled well when geotextiles are properly used. More and more floods cause serious damage to urban areas.
Polymeric liners are prone to puncture by inclusions within the underlying soil. Thick, non-woven geotextile can be used to give protection to liners during installation.
Often the upper slopes are exposed to damage and it is a good practice to cover these areas with a depth of soil which will sustain vegetation. Alternatively, a stone or concrete substance can be used to achieve a hard landscaped appearance. Our product will protect the liner from puncture whilst also providing a degree of slope stability.
