Home Applications Landfill



Environmental protection is especially important for applications such as landfills. Viking Containment is New Zealand’s leading supplier and installer of geosynthetics for critical containment applications.

Having worked on every major landfill in New Zealand we have extensive experience in the supply and construction of landfill lining systems.

Textured Geoshield High Density Polyethylene is often specified as the primary liner, the geomembrane provides a highly impermeable barrier to gases and liquids, resistant to corrosion and most chemicals. The textured surface provides increased friction angles for higher stability on steep slope applications - significantly reducing slippage and allowing for both design flexibility and greater capacity.

A secondary liner is often incorporated for extra security, Geosynthetic Clay Liners (GCL) are high performance environmental liners manufactured with durable high-strength geotextiles and a uniform layer of low-permeability sodium bentonite. The geotextiles offer a long lasting resistance to physical or chemical breakdown in harsh environments. The bentonite’s high swelling capacity and low permeability provide an effective hydraulic seal.
