Developing revolutionary products and embracing cutting-edge technologies is central to the Advanced Environmental Services philosophy. Concrete Canvas, also known in the industry as Geosynthetic Cementitious Composite Matting or GCCM, is a prime example of this.
Advanced Environmental Services is one of Australia’s foremost suppliers and installers of Concrete Canvas and other GCCM products. A major advantage of GCCMs is the lightweight and easily transportable nature of the materials. It also requires only a nominal reliance on plant and equipment required to install it. In recent times, we have overseen the remote deployment of our skilled installation teams to locations across Australia. Curtis Island LNG projects, the W2B project and Australian Defence Force projects across Tasmania being the most prominent. Smaller installations have been carried out in NSW, NT and QLD across various projects.
GCCMs comprise a three dimensional fibre matrix filled with a uniquely formulated dry concrete mixture. A PVC backing on the underside of the concrete canvas ensures that the material is impenetrable upon proper installation. Our teams install the product to manufacturers specs and then hydrate it by spraying or submerging it in fresh or salt water. Once cured, the product provides a water resistant and low-carbon concrete layer to protect the surface below.
Concrete Canvas is currently supplied in 3 thicknesses: 5, 8 and 13mm, which are designated as CC5, CC8 and CC13 respectively. GCCMs are supplied in various widths according to their application.
