EMBRICE IN PE CANYON PER SCARPATE STRADALI

The CANYON system consists of channel sections manufactured entirely in POLYETHYLENE, suitably reinforced with lateral stiffeners, for use as an alternative to the traditional heavy concrete channels used to channel rainwater on steep slopes such as road and railway embankments.

ADVANTAGES
LIGHTNESS
The Canyon system channel, manufactured in PE, has an average weight 23 times lower than the equivalent channel in concrete (average weight of a Canyon channel is 1.5 kg, average weight of a concrete channel is 35 kg).
SAFETY
Substantial reduction in incidents on-site during handling (the weight is well below that provided for by Legislative Decree 81/08).
SPEED AND SAVINGS
Easy to transport and lay, greatly reducing site time and costs.
TRANSPORT ECONOMY
Possibility to load bigger quantity of pieces.

LAYING
The elements of the CANYON system can be anchored to the ground to guarantee stability over time, regardless of the weight and type of material used for their manufacture. The contractor can normally provide information regarding the anchoring system and frequency required.
USING ANCHOR PINS The CANYON
system elements are manufactured in a manner that allows a hole to be punched in the upper surface, at the point where the overlying element overlaps it, through which an anchor pin can be inserted to fix the system to the ground.
USING A STEEL CABLE The CANYON
system elements also have a hook under the bottom surface that enables them to be anchored to a steel cable, the two ends of which must first be buried in the ground. The CANYON elements are fixed to the cable by a manual hook-up system present (moulded) on each element.
