RNC Fabric Formwork
Constant exposure to water, sea salts, waves, marine organism and other environmental
elements, in addition to increasing load demands can cause marine piles in waterfront structures to suffer extensive abrasion and corrosion over long term periods. In order to preserve the structural integrity of marine facilities and in the interest of safety, periodic inspections and corrosion control processes are integral to maintaining and extending the service life of these structures.
RNC’s FabricForm Pile Jacket is an innovative method of carrying out restoration and repairs on marine structures, offering facility owners and operators not only extensive savings in relation to cost, time but also enables repairs to be carried out without causing disruption or interruption to existing services . The use of high-tech, lightweight, durable marine-grade fabric eliminates the need for bulky and heavy equipment otherwise required using conventional methods, and enables a small team of engineers to
carry out restoration and repairs on submerged and above water marine piles with greater mobility more efficiently and effectively Piles in marine environments suffer extreme damage as a result
How it works
The RNC fabricForm Pile Jackets acts like a sleeve which encases an individual marine pile. Specially designed High Tenacity Polyester creates a water permeable fabric that is used to wrap and secure a structural pile before a concrete mixture of aggregate, water and admixtures is proportionately pumped into fabric. Using a controlled method, excess water is then forced through the fabric to maintain the integrity of the water-to-concrete mix ratio. Occasionally the use of a lightweight steel cage meanwhile, allows the mixture to take on the shape of the required as it hardens. The fabric remains bonded create increased durability, strength and enhanced resistance to corrosion and abrasion.
