Dikes and Flood Walls
Tidewall is an excellent option for flood protection walls. Either as a stand-alone wall, or to increase the height of an existing dike, or in a terraced multi-wall system, Tidewall is a cost-effective solution to protecting flood prone areas.
Tidewall has long been used to control erosion at the interface between land and water. Property located on lakes, canals, ponds, and other waterways is subject to erosion that can recede the shorelines. Tidewall provides a permanent solution that eliminates erosion, and improves the use and functionality of the property.
Tidewall can be used in several ways in road construction. First, for roads that are built across a slope, Tidewall has been used as a retaining wall to allow construction of a shoulder, and to diminish the gravitational stress on the roadbed. Second, it can be used as a cut-off or seepage wall to keep subterranean water away from bridge abutments and road supports.
Tidewall can be used as a retaining wall, either as a single wall or as a series to terrace a sloped surface, allowing more effective utilisation of the land. Especially in applications where aesthetics are important, Tidewall retaining walls provide a superior alternative to steel or wood.
Cut-Off (Seepage) Walls
Tidewall can be used quite effectively to control the flow and seepage of subterranean fluid. Many applications, from the protection of structures, to the containment of landfill effluent, to wetlands management, can effectively utilise Tidewall vinyl sheet piling to create a barrier to underground fluid migration.
Managing and controlling water resources via canal structures is becoming more important in many areas. Tidewall offers an effective low-cost alternative for canal containment.
Temporary or Permanent Shoring
Tidewall can be used as temporary or permanent shoring for construction excavations.
