Top Uses for a Cofferdam
Cofferdams have been around for some time now, and have been used for many impressive projects in the United States, such as the repair of the U.S.S. North Carolina and the construction of the Tappan Zee Bridge in New York City. Below are seven of the top uses for a cofferdam and how they might assist you on your next dewatering project.
1) Boat Ramp Construction & Repair
Whether you are building a new boat ramp or repairing an existing one, an inflatable cofferdam is a perfect way to get the water out of your work site.
2) Concrete Repair
Working on submerged concrete, like with canals and culverts, can prove a daunting task. An Aqua-Barrier® cofferdam is a safe and effective way to get your area dry and ready for repairs.
3) Pipeline Construction
Pipeline construction and inspections are another great use for a cofferdam, giving contractors the dry area they need for proper construction and repairs.
4) Sediment Control
Using silt barriers and flotation devices for sediment control are outdated. An inflatable cofferdam is faster and more efficient with its easy install and removal.
5) Shoreline Restoration
Our shorelines play a vital role in the ecological balance of our environment. A cofferdam is the perfect environmentally friendly solution to shoreline restoration.
6) Pool & Water Park Maintenance
A cofferdam is a perfect way to make pool or water park maintenance without having to close down entirely! The Aqua-Barrier® cofferdam can restrict water to one side of the pool or swimming area while repairs are being made.
