BBA Approval of PARAWEB®

December 2010

PARAWEB® has recently become our latest product to achieve British Board of Agrément (BBA) approval. BBA approval certificate No. 09/R146 relates to the use of PARAWEB® STRAPS FOR REINFORCED SOIL RETAINING WALLS AND BRIDGE ABUTMENTS.

The British Board of Agrément is Britain’s foremost certification body for the approval of construction products, systems and installers within the civil engineering and construction industries. BBA is a UKAS accredited certification body.

BBA approves Paraweb

The BBA approval certificate for PARAWEB® includes technical detail relating to; compliance with Highways Agency requirements, factors relating to compliance with Regulations, design safety factors, PARAWEB® fill interaction, installation guidance and notes, and independently verified short-term and long-term tensile and extension characteristics. The technical data within this BBA certificate allows design engineers to gain a good understanding of both the long-term and short-term physical properties of PARAWEB® Mechanically Stabilised Earth Systems.

Business Development Director Tim Balderson commented “The BBA approval of PARAWEB® allows us to supply PARAWEB® directly in to the UK market for use in reinforced wall and bridge systems. The long term tensile strength and creep stress behaviour properties, detailed within the certificate allow design engineers to accurately model the long term behaviour of PARAWEB® systems. This allows engineers to be confident when using PARAWEB® in reinforced wall and bridge abutment applications where long design life is a pre-requisite.”

Alongside PARAWEB® Linear Composites Ltd also manufacture PARAGRID® and PARALINK® geogrids, which are also BBA certified materials. The certificate numbers for these products are 98/R098 and 03/4065 respectively.
