Geosynthetics offer many benefits over traditional construction techniques; reducing project costs, construction times and the volume of natural materials that are used and therefore the associated environmental impact of transportation.
ABG Geosynthetics have developed proven products to protect surfaces and provide erosion control functions. Solutions include protecting building infrastructure, drainage systems, tree roots under drives and paths, reservoir and landfill liners and membranes.
ABG’s erosion control products are suitable for applications such as surface protection, protecting the structural stability of soils and retaining soil on slopes. Included in the range are biodegradable or non-biodegradable erosion mats and three dimensional geocells used for retaining soils on embankments
Whenever soil is exposed, cut or formed, the risk of erosion from wind, rain or water is high. Left unprotected the result is progressive instability and large amounts of silt-laden run-off. The Environment Agency considers silt-laden run-off as a pollutant and is increasingly inclined to prosecute for even minor offences.
