ABG Geosynthetics Covid 19 - Operational update

April 2020

The construction industry is key to the UK economy during this critical period and it is imperative that the supply chain remains open to the many sites that are still operating in accordance with the letter to the industry from the Rt Hon Alok Sharma.

ABG are currently involved in several key national infrastructure projects deemed essential to the COVID-19 response by the UK government. As such, we have been granted critical supply chain status and are currently fully operational whilst working in-line with current government safe working guidance.

It is our intention to remain operational throughout to support these and other key projects. We are currently fully stocked with our range of geocomposite drainage, permeable paving, storm water attenuation and geotextile products plus sufficient raw materials for the factory to remain in production and our own supply chain remains open.

Geocomposite Drainage
Drainage, separation, filtration and storm water attenuation solutions for civil engineering and building construction projects including: landfill, highways, blue & green roofs, permeable paving, retaining walls, basements and tunnelling applications.

Erosion Control
Products to protect surfaces and provide erosion control functions, including protecting building infrastructure, drainage systems, tree roots under drives and paths to protect the structural stability of soils and retaining soil on slopes.

Geotextiles perform the functions of separation and filtration in the construction of sub-base granular layers. This separator / filter function prevents the intermixing of granular sub-base layers and the passage of stone particles which could cause the failure of the surface or pavement structure.

Geogrids & Geocells
Grids & geocells to confine and stabilise the surface of weak soils. Allows loads to be transferred into the geogrid structure whilst allowing a positive interlock of the reinforced materials through the apertures of the geogrid. Products include asphalt reinforcement grids for longer lasting pavement overlays and geocells to confine granular stone layers in permanent or temporary roads.
