Originally developed for use with the heavy Geosand fabrics the concept has now been extended so that the latest model can handle all types of geotextiles in rolls up to 6m wide.
An 8m version is currently under development.
The roll of fabric is supported on steel spindles which run in tapered roller bearings. Powerful hydraulic cylinders are used to drive the spindles into the core of the roll.
No manual handling of the roll is required leading to reduced fatigue and risk.
