Global Synthetics is a leader in geosynthetics for sustainable flood protection, offering a range of temporary and permanent flood and erosion protection products.
From emergency flood management to ongoing erosion control and reinforcement, the engineering team at Global Synthetics can help you select the right solution that is reliable, fit for purpose and engineered to perform, even in the heaviest rainfall events.
Geosynthetic materials are a critical part of flood management and mitigation.
From levees to stormwater retention basins to natural channels and streams, all water-holding structures can be affected by flood events, and each application requires a unique solution.
Take a look at our range of GCLs, geogrids, HPTRMs and anchoring systems to minimise and control environmental damage during flood events.
