ENVIRONMENTAL LINING & COVERS

There are a wide range of geomembrane liners on the market today, and choosing the right one can be challenging.

  • What thickness is required?
  • Should I use a geotextile cushion to protect the liner?
  • How is this material installed?  
  • Can a panel be fabricated large enough to fit the area?  
  • Should I use a reinforced or textured liner?
  • Is the liner going to be covered or exposed?

Please call us at 609-971-8810.  We welcome the opportunity to answer your questions and to help you select a geomembrane liner material that is the most cost-effective and best fit for the application at hand.

PRODUCTS WE USE IN THESE APPLICATIONS:

DAILY COVER / STOCKPILE COVERS / RAINSHED COVERS

Geomembrane liners are used to cover anything from simple stockpiles and athletic fields, to more complex applications such as a daily landfill cover.  They prevent water infiltration, erosion and in some cases preserve air space in a landfill. Materials range from lightweight 8 mil with extended UV protection to heavy duty reinforced 60 mil.  In addition, lighter colors are available for summer months. Consider using an extended UV sandbag and rope ballast system to protect your cover from wind uplift or ask us about our no rope pocketed sandbag cover.

LANDFILL LINERS & COVERS – (INTERIM LANDFILL CAPS)

Landfills require the strongest barrier of protection to prevent leachate and its toxic elements from entering underlying aquifers and nearby rivers as well as the environment. Geomembranes play an important role in the modern landfill design.

OILFIELD / FRAC PIT / RIG LINERS

A variety of liners can be utilized to meet both the containment and environmental needs of the oil and gas industry. Products range from 6-100 mil in thickness and are available in large roll goods or custom fit to your containment area to minimize the cost of installation. It is important to select a liner that is chemically compatible with your site, durable and weather-resistant.

SALT EVAPORATION PONDS / MINE TAILINGS / HEAP LEACH PADS

Geomembranes are used in modern mining operations to prevent leakage and corrosion.  Solution ponds and heap leach pads used in the mining process require the most durable containment lining systems available.

WASTEWATER LAGOON LINERS

A wastewater lagoon liner is a geomembrane that lines a shallow pool or pond used to contain liquids, control sewage and waste seepage contamination.  Agricultural and industrial applications require the use of a durable and chemical resistant liner that can withstand a harsh environment.

FLOATING POND & LAGOON COVERS

Floating covers control odors and methane gases given off by waste.  When selecting a material, consider durability, puncture and tear resistance as well as UV and chemical resistance. Covers can be custom fabricated to meet specifications and project site conditions.

RECREATIONAL PONDS & LAKES / RESERVOIRS & POTABLE WATER STORAGE

Geomembrane liners provide containment in a variety of commercial and recreational settings. They are used to line golf course ponds and water features along with stormwater retention ponds and irrigation canals. Some liners release plasticizers and harmful byproducts into the water which can hurt the delicate fish and plant life.  NSF certified geomembranes must be selected for applications such as lakes, ponds, reservoirs and dams as well as for potable water storage.

PROJECT HIGHLIGHT

Project: Ferreria Construction / Crisdel Group Joint Venture
Contractor: Interchange 6 to 9 widening program, Contract 6 – New Jersey Turnpike

IWT Cargo-Guard recently worked with Ferreira Construction/ Crisdel Group Inc Joint Venture on the New Jersey Turnpike Interchange 6 to 9 Widening Program for Contract 6. They had a section of the project that required a gas resistant geomembrane liner to wrap EPS Geofoam blocks which were being used as an alternative for soil backfill. With the installation assistance from East Coast Liner, they successfully installed a new gas resistant geomembrane liner developed by Raven Industries called Absolute Barrier   EB25BS.

The Absolute Barrier EB25BS is a seven layer co-extruded geomembrane consisting of a very flexible, linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) and an inner core of chemically resistant barrier resin, designed specifically as a barrier against radon, methane and VOCs. Absolute Barrier™ performs extremely well against gasoline vapor transmission in geofoam protection applications. In addition to being the best performing liner for this project, it was also the most cost effective solution for our client. IWT Cargo-Guard has represented Raven Industries since 1991.
