See PolyLevel® Trench Breakers in action and learn why it's the superior alternative to sandbags for pipeline installation.
Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) is an amazing material with applications across numerous industries, including ditch blocks during pipeline installation.
SPF can be especially useful when pipeline trenching work takes place in rocky, uneven or steeply inclined terrain. When these conditions are encountered, some sort of pipeline trench support is required.
Sandbags have traditionally been used to construct ditch plugs, but our spray foam crew can do this work faster, more affordably and with superior results.
Contact the experts at PolyLevel® Alberta Corp. to schedule an appointment and installation quote. Our pipeline trench breaker and rock shield services are currently available throughout Alberta but we will mobilize to other provinces. We also have partnership with our sister offices in the U.S. if your pipeline crosses Canada/U.S. border.
A COR Certification shows that the employer's Health and Safety Management System (HSMS) has been evaluated by a certified auditor and meets provincial standards established by Alberta Occupational Health and Safety.
The 2-part foam used in geotechnical applications has unique characteristics that provide important advantages in trench breaker construction. When the SPF resin and catalyst compounds are mixed at the application nozzle, the resulting chemical reaction turns the liquids into expanding foam with excellent adhesive qualities. The foam penetrates into loose soil and bonds to the sides of the trench excavation.
The foam expands, hardens and cures within minutes, making it possible to complete each trench breaker in a fraction of the time that a larger crew would require to build with sandbags. The cured SPF support is inert, environmentally safe, and immune to moisture damage.
Protecting the pipe during backfill is incredibly essential, and PolyLevel® spray foam is a great way to provide durable protection. Using PolyLevel® as a rock shield will ensure that the pipe stays protected throughout the backfill process.
This method is very economical, and you can also easily add thickness to the application depending on need. PolyLevel Alberta Corp. will provide you with the ideal application for every job's needs.
Our SPF system is compact and portable; we don't need heavy equipment to transport tons of sandbags. SPF has what it takes to keep your project moving.
