Intended for use in seawall and retaining wall construction and replacement, the Truline Sheet Piling Solution uses interlocking vinyl sheets to construct a durable shell for the direct pouring of concrete. Unlike concrete panels, the vinyl panel system does not require heavy equipment or an extended curing time, while still creating the flat surface associated with concrete panels. Once installed, the system will not corrode or rust, and vinyl UV stabilizers resist discoloration.

The Submersible Dredge or Sub-Dredge allows dredging in underwater areas that are inaccessible to many other mechanical and hydraulic dredges. The machine’s mobility allows it to get around obstacles such as ship hulls and floating dry docks, and it is able to pump with production rates up to 350 cu yd per hour with 60 to 80% solids in-situ. A turbidity shroud reduces turbidity and leftover residuals, reducing risk of contamination.

The Grabbit Tarp Fasterners are two-piece fasteners designed for securing tarps and similar materials without the need for grommets or even holes. The tarp material is wrapped around the “dogbone” bar piece that is already screwed to a surface, after which a sleeve is pulled on over the tarp with a guide rope to secure it. The linear grappling technique allows for any point on the tarp to be used for securing, while distributing the load to reduce the chance of tearing. Grabbit Tarp Fasteners work on poly tarps, canvas tarps, plastic sheeting, linens, vinyl signs and banners, mosquito netting, burlap and landscaping fabrics. They are able to hold up to eight layers of poly tarp or four layers of canvas tarp at one time. Grabbit Tool Co.; 303-960-8140; www.grabbittool.com
