The product produced by our firm helps to strengthen the paved surfaces by setting up a separation barrier between subsoil and base, permitting free water to drain quickly, but preventing soils from moving into the base.
The fabric adds tensile reinforcement to the pavement permitting heavier wheel loads while substantially reducing maintenance.
It also provides a long lasting, better quality surface while allowing a 25 per cent reduction in base course aggregate.
Problem: Poor load-bearing soils pose a significant problem for transportation and construction needs. Unpaved areas, such as access roads, paths, parking lots, driveways, etc can be highly vulnerable to near-surface shear failure and rutting, especially in moist conditions or areas with higher expected loads. Typically, engineers bridge over weak soils with rigid structures such as thick, reinforced concrete for roads and highways. However, such techniques are prohibitively expensive and inordinately difficult...
MB`s crusher bucket in the demolition field allows for crushing, recycling and production of materials ready to be re-used directly on the same worksite, or sold. MB eliminates transport and disposal needs of materials from demolition of residential buildings, industrial structures, reinforced pillars and railway sleepers. MB provides immediate advantages, not only economic (elimination of demolition material handling and transportation costs), but above all eco-friendly.
Problem: Retaining Wall structures are growing ever more necessary as construction is forced to deal with rough terrain, steep slopes, and embankment reinforcement. Changes-in-grade present obstacles for roads and other development requiring flatter, more usable land. Most current types of retaining walls are made of cast-in-place, steel-reinforced concrete walls whose virtue is based entirely upon its internal strength and rigidity. However, these cantilever walls are expensive, vulnerable to cracking from high...
Nilex’s engineered erosion control and sediment control products reduce the damaging effects of rainfall, wind and wave action on soil structures while replacing or reducing the dependency on scarce natural resources.
Geosynthetic erosion control products are designed to reduce damaging effects of rainfall, run-off, and wave and wind action on soil structures by redirecting water flow or acting as a barrier between the soil surface and water.
Nilex Erosion Control systems include: Erosion...
TenCate Geosynthetics deliver solutions that enhance the performance and design life of transportation engineering structures for paving. From our complete product line for Roadway and Railway Construction System Solutions, we offer materials that function for sealing, stress relief, adhesive bonding, and soil reinforcement. They offer robust mechanical properties coupled with high water flow capabilities that extend pavement life by retarding reflective cracking, waterproofing and reinforcing asphalt pavements.
In infrastructure projects in which space has to be saved or land acquisition minimized, TenCate Geosynthetic soil reinforcement technology has been used in the design and construction of steep slopes or walls. The use of this technology increases the stability of such structures.
Civil engineers, consultants and contractors can use ImpulseRadar GPR for: Concrete / structure investigations and mapping: conduits, depth of cover, post-tension cables, rebar, slab thickness and voids. Bridge, road and runway investigations: asphalt thickness, base layer profiling and thickness, reinforcement evaluations, structure, subsidence and voids. Utility detection and mapping.
The world registers less than 3.5 million kms of pipelines in 120 countries. Pipelines conveying flammable or explosive material, such as natural gas or oil, pose special safety concerns. To avoid pipeline instability and damage caused by differential settlements, TenCate Geosynthetics EMEA offers you the optimum solution from its wide range of reinforcement geosynthetics: TenCate Geolon PET & PP, TenCate Miragrid GX & TenCate Rock PEC ranges.
Design high-performing, ‘low environmental impact’ GEOWEB channels for stormwater conveyance, as well as for erosion protection of containment facilities. Protect impervious liners in lagoons and detention basins, preventing degradation and contaminant leakage. With the GEOWEB system, channel and basin designs can be customized for each project with vegetation, aggregate or concrete infill, offering more economical solutions than rip-rap, gabions or reinforced concrete systems. The GEOWEB system&rsqu...
