Pre-welded Panel Capabilities
At HBB we look at ‘tomorrows world’ as opposed to how things have been done in the Geosythetic Cover, Liner & Barrier Industry for the ‘last 20 years’.
Our ‘tomorrows world’ philosophy is no better demonstrated than by our fully automated pre-welded panel capabilities which allows us to supply custom made cover, lining and barrier solutions in large one-piece panels, delivering our clients a competitive and operational advantage.
Traditionally, geomembrane covers, liners and barriers are supplied in standard roll widths which are then weld seamed out in the field by qualified welding technicians. By supplying large, client specific sized pre-welded panels we significantly reduce the amount of onsite weld seaming required and on some occasions completely remove the need for any onsite welding.
This allows our clients to hire a welding supervisor and welding equipment and supply the rest of the required labour from their own staff pool or when no onsite welding is required clients deploy the panel with their own labour, all providing a significant cost saving.
The supply of pre-welded panels is not entirely a new concept however what makes our capabilities different from our competitors is our pre-welded panel process is fully automated meaning no hand welding is required, the temperature and speed of welding is computer controlled and all this is serviced within a controlled environment within factory conditions.
Because our process is fully automated we are always pushing the boundaries in terms of individual panel size and weight. Panels are available up to 40m wide x 150m long as standard and larger as per client requirements. Panels are accordion folded and delivered in panel form or rolled onto cores to ensure safe and time efficient onsite deployment.
With our fully automated pre-welded panel and folding process we can produce 20 000m2 of pre-welded panels per hour providing our clients with unrivalled pre-welded panel fabrication rates.
We have automated pre-welded panel facilities in the UK, mainland Europe and the USA so we can provide quick delivery times to all parts of the World.
Lead times for client specific pre-welded panels range between 7 – 21 working days subject to client requirements.
