Proper assessment of needs, actions and risks leads to the appropriate choice of a combination of geosynthetics that will perform different functions:
- Primary impermeable barriers
- Secondary waterproof barriers
- Anti-puncture protection elements
- Leachate, rain or gas drainage elements
Products are continuously being developed that increasingly efficiently satisfy each of these functions, installation procedures are modified to include new techniques, and construction details are adjusted based on the behaviors observed over many experiences in order to increase safety coefficients.
Being at the forefront is not a choice, but an obligation, and can only be achieved with a highly qualified technical team.
It is important to know the solutions and materials that have been used in the last 40 years, as well as the latest advances, to know how to advise and use in each case the most appropriate technologies.
All products and techniques have their strengths and weaknesses, just as the same results are not obtained by combining different products that at first glance may seem equivalent.
Experience is one degree, but it is not enough. It is necessary to know in depth the products, techniques and solutions to be able to adapt them to the unique characteristics of the projects.
