Sudpave™ plastic grid pavers are used to control the run-off of rain water to limit the impact on over loaded storm water infrastructure. Sudpave™ is an open cell structure, which is either gravel filled, for frequent intensive use, or grass planted for occasional consecutive use. The open structure allows rain water to permeate into the ground at its source. Sudpave™ is now manufactured in South Africa to meet the increasing demand for paving products that satisfy the requirements of a Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SUDS).
Concrete Canvas is part of a class of construction materials called Geosynthetic Cementitious Composite Mats (GCCMs). It is a flexible, concrete impregnated fabric that harden on hydration to form a thin, durable, waterproof and fire-resistant concrete layer. It is used in channel lining, slope protection, bund lining, remediation of existing concrete structures, and culvert lining.
Weak and unstable soils are easily strengthened by the inclusion of Miragrid GX geogrids. Miragrid GX geogrids act to structurally increase the load bearing capacity and tensile resistance of the soil beyond its natural limits.
