A better alternative to sandbags and gravel bags. The Symmloc needs fewer units, has a better grip on the cover, is lightweight, and is reusable. Stocked and Ready to Ship.
- The fastener drastically reduces your cost to maintain temporary stockpile covers without using heavy sandbags or gravel bags.
- 98% of the weight associated with sand or gravel bags has been eliminated, that also eliminates potential job related work injuries, such as back and leg injuries.
- The covers can be built on the ground, then drug over the pile with a excavator or other type of equipment using the fastener, once this is done the cover can be secured at the base.
- If you want to access your material, you can quickly take apart a seam or edge and move it out of the way without needing to move many heavy bags, then the cover can be easily modified and put back in place when the access to the material has been completed.
Quicker and Easier to Install
Fasteners are easier to install because they only weigh 7.5 ounces each, you also won’t need to install as many. If you are installing them in a difficult location, you will only need to lift about 1% of the weight needed for sandbags. Since the weight is so much less compared to sandbags, you will eliminate the equipment needed to move thousands of pounds of sandbags or used tires around your project or from jobsite to jobsite. This will also reduce back breaking labor to install.
Stays in Place During Storms
The locks also greatly improves the performance of keeping the covers in place before and during storms. Traditional methods of keeping temporary covers in place tend to fail when they are needed most, right before or during a rain event due to the winds and the fact that a sand or gravel bags can only hold approximately 16 pounds despite weighing 40 pounds. This can cause expensive damage to a sites BMP compliance and or saturate you material adding more cost and time to a project and erosion concerns.
Symmloc only requires you to use a fraction of the weight required by sandbags of gravel bags, and you use less units and they can be used over and over, and transportation is easy, you can also add the benefit of having dry material during wet weather periods.
Cost Savings and Quick Access
Cost Saving – Because you use fewer units, the weight required is drastically reduced thus reducing labor, transportation and storage requirements.
Performance – (1) Fastener can hold 124 pounds using 10 mil plastic, compared to (1) 40 pound sandbags that can hold 16 pounds. The fasteners can be used to construct wind resistant seams for long term high wind areas, without the need for expensive weldable materials.
Use Film Covers – High load rating of the fasteners allows you to use less expensive plastic films rather than thicker welded covers. Film covers can be put together in wet or cold conditions unlike welded covers. This will also drastically reduce or eliminate your maintenance compared to seam and cover failures using sandbags.
Quicker Access – Because your cover isn’t held down by hundreds or thousands of heavy bags, you can get to your material quickly and easily.
