A 10,000m2 lake liner and RDL takes project to completion
Thursday, March 16, 2017
Russetts Developments Ltd (RDL) have been fabricating liners (pond liners, lake liners and tank liners) as used for numerous projects for the past 35 years. Projects have included the lining for a humble garden pond through to more demanding ones such as the lining of the tunnels for London cross rail.
We fabricate liners
from a range of materials in various thicknesses. We have the ability to keep water in and keep water out. Tank liners are used for various installations. Some feed fire prevention sprinkler systems, some harvest water from buildings to use in irrigation while others are used for potable water storage. Tank liners form an important part of our business.
For larger installations
we have teams of staff that visit the site to project manage and install. One such job was for the prestigious London Golf Club where our team installed a 10,000m2 protective underlay a TPO membrane lake liner which was finished to a very high specification. Our project manager supervised the job from the initial site visit through to completion.
Flagon GeoP 1.0mm TPO lake liner was the chosen membrane to use. The superior flexibility and strength of TPO proved ideal for the lakes environment .The TPO lake liner membranes none heat absorbing light colour was chosen to ensure the ambient temperature of the water would not promote the growth of algae. This was an ongoing project for RDL as we had previously installed a lake liner to four of the golf clubs other lakes.
Prior to installing the TPO membrane, 400g/m2 of geotextile protective underlay was laid down across the total width and breadth of the lake to ensure the lake liner was protected from sharp stones and ground movement. A number of head walls were constructed to ensure the pipe work leading into the lake was secured and to provide a flanged connection to make the seal water tight.
We have a lot of experience working with Landscapers to create perfect water features. We can also tailor pond liners into many different shapes to fit vertically sided, more formal pond designs preventing unsightly folds and creases. Or, we can supply just a small flat sheet pond liner. Whether a box welded pond liner or flat sheet liner, we can provide the correct look on the budget required.
Our lake liners
are used for the containment of water where water would otherwise be lost through ground seepage. Lakes of several meters in diameter can be lined by our team.
