Cut-off walls prevent any movements – typically of liquids – into and out of an area of ground, especially for large structures such as industrial facilities.
They act as seepage barriers to isolate the area.
They can also act as a containment structure to retain liquid pollutants and help prevent any groundwater contamination. If the ground is already polluted, cut-off walls can be used to create a watertight belt that will stop the spread of contaminants.
VSL-Intrafor can help by carrying out preliminary geotechnical and hydrogeological investigations, as well as undertaking the final site permeability tests once the cut-off system has been installed.
The company has the in-house resources and expertise to analyze, design and build the best technical solutions to ensure reliable performance.
A design and build solution including:
- Preliminary investigations
- Laboratory tests of the product mix for cut-off walls
- Installation of the cut-off wall
- Final permeability controls and tests
