HYDRAULICS: GABION

Metal gabions have provided one of the most widely applied solutions in hydraulic engineering for over a century. Thanks to their great versatility and resistance, they are fit for all kinds of sites, from the source of rivers to where they flow out into lakes, reservoirs or the sea.

• Flexible: Adapts to all kinds of land and its movements
• Quick to install
• Competitive
• Easy to design
• Respects the Environment
• Landscape and environmental integration
• Permeable
• Curved or unique shapes
• Without foundations
• Immediate delivery
• Execution by phases
• Immediately bears loads

HYDRAULICS: LINING GABION

Lining gabion is a Gabion with a matress shape that is 17 or 30 cm thick. Its main applications are to line the banks of rivers and canals, to protect bridge abutments, foundation platforms and consolidate slopes along roads and railway lines.

• Flexible
• Quick to install
• Competitive
• Respects the Environment
• Aesthetic
• Permeable
• Without foundations
• Immediate delivery
• Execution by phases

HYDRAULICS: BIANMAT®

BianMat® is a geoblanket manufactured with thermowelded polypropylene filaments at the contact points. Its main function is to confine the particles of soil, guaranteeing good stabilisation of the surface lined and facilitating seed germination. These characteristics make Bianmat® a very useful product in zones exposed to erosion by contact with water.

• BianMat controls and acts as a surface protection against erosion.
• The relatively high permeability of the polymer matrix of BianMat, allows natural settling of sediments on the protected surface.
• BianMat provides an attractive, environmentally ideal solution to prevent erosion damage.
• The geoblanket acts against the effects of wind and rain and holds back fine material, facilitating growth of vegetation.

DRAINAGE: MACDRAIN®

A wide range of drainage sheets for different aplications in the scope of hydraulics. The MacDrain® range includes different drainage materials that are comprised of a three-dimensional polymer core and one or two non-woven geotextiles that act as filters.

• These provide and maintain high quality flow surfaces over time for liquids and gases, stabilising the land.
• Their high robustness assures minimisation of damage during placement of the material.
• Their lightness and easy handling allow very swift placement.
• It protects the water-proofing systems against eventual mechanical damage.
• It is a non contaminating material that resists chemical and biological attacks.

WATERPROOFING: MACLINE® Y MACLINE® GCL

The MacLine® geomembranes and Mac Line® GCL bentonitic geocompounds form a large range of water-proofing products. The main applications are protection and water-proofing of floors and structures within the scope of civil engineering.

• High compatibility with the majority of chemical products and effluents
• High mechanical resistance
• “Carbon Black” protection against ultraviolet rays
• Great dimensional stability
• High resistance to impacts and puncturing
• Large sized rolls
