Giving civil engineers the power to build with strength, stability, and keep erosive forces in check.
Sometimes builders and civil engineers work with nature, and sometimes they have to bend it to their will…
Enka Solutions high performance geosynthetics play an essential part in reinforcing soil, controlling erosion, improving drainage and a range of other applications vital for stable, durable construction.
They can help make major civil engineering projects possible at a lower cost, while speeding completion, reducing maintenance and increasing the life of often critical and high value infrastructure.
Where shorelines are retreating beneath rising sea levels, and coastlines succumbing to tidal battering, our products step in to hold erosion at bay. They help protect beaches and the vulnerable buildings just inland, as well as offshore construction projects and waterways under threat of sludge and sediment.
Across the world our geosynthetic solutions make roads and rail safer, stronger and more stable. By strengthening the resilience of soil, asphalt, embankments and drainage, Enka Solutions contributes to the durability and reliability of key transport infrastructure - and cut the costs of their maintenance.
The effects of our changing climate are felt in ever more frequent flooding, while modern consumerism places an increasing burden on waste management and landfill. Our products play a part in mitigating those issues, from assisting in the construction of recycling plants and wind farms, to holding back mud, silt and excess water, enabling urban development in areas where the building challenge might otherwise be too great.
Be it for industrial, commercial or public use, all construction projects need absolute certainty around the groundwork they sit on. Whether through soil reinforcement, drainage, stabilising slopes and retaining walls, or by dampening vibration caused by traffic and construction, we contribute to the solid foundations on which those projects rely.
Enka Solutions help give tunnels and other mining projects the longest possible service life. They can raise the performance of drainage, increase the bearing capacity of soil and reduce damage caused by vibration. They are world-leading products at achieving these goals and can be found in some of the most prestigious tunnelling programmes undertaken.
Helping our customers deliver amazing results on projects that improve our quality of life…while driving business growth.
Our protective mats help the Dutch stop erosion from waterways. They flex to the shape of the soil and let the vegetation grow through, resulting in permanent, low-maintenance protection and a natural appearance.
Our pre-fabricated vertical drain helped New Orleans repair broken flood levees after Hurricane Katrina, and before the next storm season.
Our flexible, UV-resistant concrete mats help protect a Western Australian iron ore mine against erosion during floods.
