PROTECTING AND ENHANCING WHERE WE LIVE AND WORK

BUILDING IT BETTER

Enabling stronger, safer, faster building with a longer life and more sustainable construction

Sustainable

The low energy fabrication of our materials and potential for recycling support sustainable construction.

Durable

We strengthen concrete, improve drainage, repel the elements and increase a building’s lifetime in countless ways.

Cost efficient

Lightness during transport, ease of installation, simple storage and durability all bring building costs down.

Safer building

By removing the need for traditional materials such as steel mesh reinforcement, building sites become safer

BUILDING APPLICATIONS

How Low & Bonar products help the building and construction industry achieve more

Air filtration

Air filtration

Colback’s use as a filter medium not only helps maintain indoor air quality but also cuts energy consumption by creating filters with a low pressure drop.

Drainage solutions

Drainage solutions

Enkadrain polymeric mats offer exceptional drainage performance. Used vertically they drain moisture in sub surface foundation walls. For horizontal applications they can lie perfectly flat. In green roofs they manage stormwater dispersion while retaining the right moisture levels to keep vegetation healthy.

Flooring

Flooring

Concrete hardstanding at airports, internal floors, barriers, train sleepers and more all benefit from Adfil fibres. They inhibit shrinkage and settlement cracking, and improve impact resistance and lifespan.

Green roof systems

Green roof systems

The Xeroflor System is a green roof solution that enables the easy design and installation of extensive green roofs for virtually any roof construction, including those with a low load-bearing capacity.

Groundwork construction

Groundwork construction

Drainage mats beneath floor slabs reduce cracking. Geocomposites create stress relief slip joints between adjacent foundations, and are used for lost formwork. Geogrids and geotextiles are used in trust relief walls.

Precast Concrete

Precast Concrete

When our synthetic fibres are added to concrete they reduce cracking and shrinkage, add strength and extend lifespan. By removing the need for steel reinforcement they also reduce weight and simplify construction, making the building of internal and external floors, or manufacture of pre-cast concrete panels, safer, easier and faster.

Sound control

Sound control

In hospitals, offices, hotels and other buildings, noise is a distraction, even a danger. Our Enkamat and Enkasonic products sit beneath flooring to reduce sound transmission between floors or fill roof cavities to cut environmental noise.

Transportation infrastructure

Transportation infrastructure

Enkamat products dampen the vibrations that vehicles, trains and trams inflict on nearby buildings. Our geosynthetics reinforce weak soils beneath access roads, car parks and pedestrian areas within urban development.
