EROSION CONTROL

BioD-Mat® woven bristle coir blankets

RoLanka’s BioD-Mat® blankets are woven from machine-spun bristle coir (coconut fiber) twines. Coir fiber is a renewal natural resource, a by-product from the coconut industry.  These semi-permanent 100% biodegradable, strong and durable bristle coir woven blankets provide higher resistance upon installation while supporting growth and development of vegetation. These blankets allow designers and specifiers to go beyond the design limits of other types of organic erosion control blankets.

PIPE

Mobile app for PVC pipe standards

The Uni-Bell PVC Pipe Association released a mobile app that provides the most current PVC pipe products available meeting both AWWA and ASTM standards. The app is a useful reference tool to ensure that the most appropriate PVC pipes are specified for pipe projects. Included are PVC pipes in sizes from 4 to 60 inches for water mains, gravity sewers, sewer force mains, reclaimed water lines, storm sewers, and trenchless applications. The app provides available size ranges, joining systems, and applicable standards for each application; outside-diameter regimens for pressure pipes; and cross-section information and pipe stiffness values for sewer pipe.

RETAINING WALLS

Reinforced Earth®   MSE Retaining Wall System

Reinforced Earth® MSE retaining structures are an economical way to meet ordinary and extraordinary earth retention and load support needs for highways and bridges, railroads and mass transit systems, waterfronts, airports, loading docks, industrial and mining facilities and commercial and residential developments.  Each wall is a coherent gravity structure, custom-engineered by The Reinforced Earth Company to project-specific requirements including applied loading, foundation conditions, and aesthetics. The key components of a Reinforced Earth wall are galvanized steel high adherence reinforcing strips or reinforcing ladders, granular backfill and precast concrete facing panels.  The frictional bond between the backfill and the reinforcements is permanent and predictable and there is a reliable mechanical connection between reinforcements and facing panels.

SOIL/SLOPE STABILITY

NEW, STRONGER LOAD TRANSFER DEVICE FOR GEOCELLS

Presto Geosystems, the leader in geocell technology, introduces its newest innovation – the ATRA® Tendon Clip, a high strength load transfer device designed to transfer slope gravitational forces from the GEOWEB® cell wall to tendons.  The device incorporates the same “turn and lock” capability of Presto’s ATRA® key through GEOWEB® cell wall slots delivering connection certainty and a guarantee that the clip will bear against the cell wall for maximum performance.

STORMWATER

Impact Resistant fiberglass reinforced HDPE Storm Rax

Impact resistant structural plastic has a cellular core surrounded by integral skins forming a totally integrated structure.  Structural molded parts made from fiberglass reinforced HDPE have a high strength-to-weight ratio and have 3 to 4 times greater rigidity than solid parts of the same material of equal weight. Storm Rax are designed to withstand the conditions of pond structures – rough handling, high/low temperatures and long term weather exposure.

Expansion Joint Covers APF System

CS Expansion Joint Covers’ APF system is a unique interlocking cover design that allows for horizontal movement, as well as some vertical deflection. It is designed to withstand heavy and frequent rolling loads. This system is ideal for areas where significant foot traffic is expected and is considered extremely low maintenance. The interlocking cover assembly utilizes precision gaskets to eliminate any metal-to-metal noise and to prevent the infiltration of liquids.

WATER/WASTEWATER

Advantages of Specifying Fiberglass Water Storage Tanks

Xerxes manufactures underground and aboveground fiberglass tanks in a wide range of models and sizes, designed to meet the needs of a growing number of water applications. When storage tanks are required for a project, specifiers have a choice in tank materials. Fiberglass storage tanks are increasingly the preferred choice when compared to concrete, steel and polyethylene tanks, especially where corrosion is a concern.
