Salt Barrier prevents "sweet" soil zone damage of soft landscaping areas, caused by the capillary rise of saline groundwater.
The Salt Barrier geosynthetics is developed specifically to replace the traditional 300mm crushed stone granular layer, reducing the environmental impact by avoiding the use of a primary resource and the associated transportation costs.It has a proven track record on a number of high-profile projects including the Middle East where it was used extensively in the Palm Jumeirah Development.
