Canal Linings

Concrete or soil canals can be designed to include an impermeable lining. This lining would offer an impermeable barrier in the event of soil settlement or cracking of the underlying concrete. Chemical resistance and UV protection packages are design considerations for these applications as geosynthetics might offer substantially extended design life predictions as opposed to more traditional construction methods.

Linings can be installed into trapezoidal canals or box canals, constructed from either stabilised soil or concrete.
