HOW FLEXXCAPE WORKS
The proprietary blend of industrial PVC allows for heavy-duty use and durability while maintaining flexibility and conformity. The patented extrusion process creates irregular, undulating loops that grab sand particles while allowing for proper water flow.
As the manufacturer and marketer of the popular Sandtrapper product line, we took our expertise in geophysical controls and applied them to the seamless bunker liner concept. We focused on maintaining simple handling and installation requirements. We focused on washout control and consistent playability. We focused on maintenance durability.
We started by selecting, testing, and reselecting raw materials and manufacturing settings that would deliver the best combination of performance characteristics.
The irregular looping method was analyzed and tested to determine the best shape and pattern to deliver proper water flow and excellent sand adhesion.
Product weight and roll size were two important factors.We needed it to be easily handled for installation while sized correctly for freight efficiencies.
To create the seamless characteristic, we tested a wide range of industrial adhesives and epoxies. We needed a strong, flexible bond and a fast cure time.
SIMPLE, SEAMLESS BUNKER PROTECTION
Between the bunker sand and base, Flexxcape resists compaction and maintains proper open space for water to drain fast. Instead of defining an elevated perch-table to stabilize sand, the irregular loops and undulating surface of Flexxcape provides extreme sand-grabbing capabilities and prevents washouts. At approximately one pound per square foot, Flexxcape is heavy and stable. The proprietary PVC blend gives it the right flexibility to combat extreme environments. One in place, it maintains its flexibility and will conform effortlessly during repetitive freeze/thaw cycles.
NO INSTALLATION HASSLES
The beauty of Flexxcape is its simplicity. There is no requirement for materials testing or batch control like other hardscapes. There is no specialized equipment or installers needed. Also, Flexxcape can be installed in all different weather conditions, heat and cold, wet or dry.
A SINGLE, CONTINUOUS BARRIER
Once segments are bonded, the barrier works as a single unit. Bonding time is fast so you can be on to the next bunker. No rips or tearing from mechanical raking. Best yet, it will not degrade over time and is literally a permanent solution, period.
