Geosynthetic Tank Floor
What: This project features a geosynthetic floor solution for a liquid manure storage tank. This procedure is not limited to manure tanks, but should be thought of as an alternate cost effective solution to concrete floors in storage tanks.
This geosysynthetic tank floor consisted of four layers of materials as follows:
- Layer 1: fused 60 mil poly Leak Location Liner
- Layer 2: wick vapour drain gas venting system
- Layer 3: 8 oz non woven geotextile
- Layer 4: 60 or 80 mil HDPE geomembrane
Each layer is attached to the tank and made waterproof by a stainless steel termination strip, attached to the tank’s concrete ring beam.
Why Titan: We proposed a solution that was cheaper than pouring a concrete floor which reduced overall construction costs, while also providing turn-key material supply and installation service for added client convenience.
