Bringing sustainability, durability and accelerated construction to major infrastructure projects
The exceptional performance our solutions provide supports the long lifespans infrastructure projects demand.
By replacing bulky traditional materials with lighter alternatives, construction becomes faster and cheaper.
Our environmentally-friendly solutions improve the sustainability of civil engineering projects, and make them easier to maintain.
Lighter weight modular components and less need for steel mesh reinforcement mean construction is faster and working environments safer.
Just some of the ways Low & Bonar products support the Civil Engineering industry
Enka Solutions geotextiles offer a more economical and environmental way of preventing sand being washed away. Our materials contribute in many different ways to protect coasts, beaches and inland areas that are prone to flooding.VISIT ENKA SOLUTIONS
Used in Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems our geosynthetics improve water control and protect construction. They are also flexible yet durable enough to maintain their integrity under heavy rock armour. Adfil fibres are an environmentally friendly alternative to steel reinforcement for the concrete in recycling plants.VISIT ENKA SOLUTIONS
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.VISIT ADFIL
Enka Solutions products stabilise slopes and retaining walls around embankments and bridge abutments, reinforce weak soils beneath foundations, and dampen vibrations from construction, road traffic, trams and trains.VISIT ENKA SOLUTIONS
Landfills are essential in waste management but can release liquids and gas that harm the environment. Enka Solutions products deliver versatile and durable solutions to prevent pollutants leaking into soil and to drain off gas.VISIT ENKA SOLUTIONS
When pre-cast concrete panels are reinforced with our synthetic Adfil fibres, shrinkage and cracks are reduced, fire resistance improves and manufacture is faster and safer.VISIT ADFIL
By strengthening the resilience of soil, asphalt and embankments and improving the performance of drainage, our Enka Solutions geosynthetic products contribute to the durability and reliability of key transport infrastructure - and cut the cost of maintenance.VISIT ENKA SOLUTIONS
Adfil fibres improve the permeability of concrete, allowing steam to escape more easily in the event of a tunnel fire. This prevents the explosive spalling that makes over-heated concrete dangerous in tunnels and mines. Enka Solutions geosynthetics provide all necessary drainage and protection layers in tunnel constructions.VISIT ENKA SOLUTIONS
