Geomembranes

HDPE membranes

High-density polyethylene impermeable geomembranes (HDPE) are resistant to most chemicals and have a high-stress factor resistance. These tried and tested products are ideal for SUDS applications including attenuation tanks, pond lining, anaerobic digestion applications, porous sub-base installations, containment, cut-off trenches and structural waterproofing.

HDPE geomembrane

High-Density Polyethylene geomembranes are designed to protect structures from the ingress of moisture, water, liquids, radon, carbon dioxide and methane together with chemicals.

Our technical team can advise on product selection appropriate to the application and full installation method statements. Suitable for welding, we can also supply the tapes for lapped and taped jointed situations or we can offer a full design, supply and installation option. Providing the client with the comfort that the selected system will be installed correctly ensuring long term performance.

Applications for HDPE membranes

  • Ponds
  • Lagoons
  • Anaerobic digestion ponds
  • Gas barriers
  • Hydrocarbon barriers
  • Swales
  • Attenuation tanks
  • Root barrier
  • Radon protection
  • Waterproofing
  • Permeable paving
Root Barrier
Stop invasive plant species

Root penetration resistance

Our high-density polyethylene (HDPE) membrane is a highly effective barrier against the spread of undesirable root systems of many invasive plant species.

Due to the smooth and rigid surface, the plant's root primordia are diverted, and controlled within the given boundaries of the HDPE containment area. Resistance to root penetration from invasive species, including (but not limited to):

  • Japanese knotweed
  • Bamboo
  • Mustard seed
  • Meadow Grass
  • Ivy
  • Hybrid poplars

Attenuation Tank Liners

We specialise in providing customisable, pre-assembled box liners and lids, commonly known as Attenuation Tank Liners, Shoe Box Liners, or SUDS (Sustainable Urban Drainage System) boxes. Our products are carefully crafted using a range of materials, ensuring they are tailored to meet the unique requirements of your project, regardless of its size. We prioritise your convenience by offering direct delivery to your project site.

Our liner solutions can be enhanced with optional 'Top Hats' designed to create secure seals with pipes and vents, improving the functionality and efficiency of your drainage system. Whatever you require your liner for, our flexible, welded designs are engineered to offer durability and adaptability, making them a reliable choice for various applications.

With our commitment to quality, versatility, and prompt delivery, you can trust us to provide the ideal box liners and lids that perfectly align with your project's needs.

The Kinema in the Woods

The Kinema in the Woods is a cinema in the village of Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire, England. Dating back to 1922, this beautiful woodland setting is a protected conservation area.  We were invited to assist with creating a new access road and car park in the sensitive area in which the cinema is located and which is surrounded by hundreds of trees protected by Tree Preservation Orders (TPOs).
