Introduction to Plastic Sheet Piling and JETFilter Weep Hole Filters

The Discussion on the responsible use of plastics is extremely current new. This Seminar will illustrate that Plastic Piling, made from recycled PVC, is an extremely responsible outlet for recycling plastic. Plastic benefits piling, combining a method that provides rapid installation, with little to no site preparation; with the longevity of the plastic material. Clearly suited for flood barriers, cutt-off structures emergency breach repairs, erosion & scour protection

Changing the game of flood-fighting

With the development of the new light-weight free-standing self-anchoring flood barriers the sandbag era will come to an end. Utilizing this new easy-to-use technology the victims of the past will instead become resources for the future. The staff of a company will be able to save their own company, school children could protect their own school etc. This means that many more hands will be available for flood fighting efforts.
