Other Concrete Uses

In mainland China and Hong Kong, Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, Peru, and Uruguay only, we offer Steel Fibre Reinforced Concrete (SFRC) for use within industrial flooring, concrete slabs and precast concrete products. Through our knowledge and experience in fibre reinforcement, we offer clients the potential to improve the performance of concrete in many other applications. For… Read more »

Weirs, Culverts and Transverse Structures

Gabions and Reno mattresses for weirs

Over a century of experience in transverse structures. Transverse Structures are used to control dynamic hydraulic flows carrying solids or sediments. These structures obstruct the flow, changing its hydraulic behaviour and its ability to erode. We have over a century of experience in the selection of appropriate transverse structures, used to control water channel flow. Maccaferri… Read more »

Waterproofing of Reservoirs, Lakes and Channels


The many functions of waterproofing and lining Waterproofing of reservoirs, lakes and channels serves many functions, whether to provide storm water attenuation ponds, or prevent contaminated water polluting the ground. These containment structures are used within many market sectors including; – Slurry ponds in agriculture – Leachate lagoons in mine workings – Storm water attenuation… Read more »

  Improving the performance of concrete The use of fibres in the concrete provides new and improved mechanical properties. This is achieved by distributing the fibres in three dimensions throughout the concrete, providing performance precisely where it is needed. A valuable resource for a range of purposes. Our Wirand® steel fibre reinforcement enhances the performance of… Read more »

Vertical Walls with Concrete Facing Panels


Situations that require our cost-effective engineered solutions Where only a narrow construction corridor is available, or a reinforced soil structure with a vertical face in urban areas is required, we offer clients our cost-effective engineered solutions through vertical walls with concrete facing panels. Building in tight urban areas and mines. These structures are regularly used to… Read more »

Surface Strengthening and Support


Working to mitigate against unstable surface layers Certain rock slopes have an unstable surface layer which often requires additional stabilisation. We offer a range of surface strengthening and support systems with high strength mesh systems which are designed to work in conjunction with anchorages, to increase the stability of the unstable superficial layer. Key factors… Read more »
