Protecting iconic pier

As well as traditional timber works, the repairs also utilised the SeaShield 500 System supplied by WINN & COALES (DENSO) . The company says this is an encapsulation system that will protect many of the historic timber piles from the aggressive saltwater environment and marine animals, so avoiding the need for their removal and replacement. The 500 System used in this project consisted of specially constructed GRP forms which were applied in areas above and below water and fixed in position on the piles. SeaShield 550 Epoxy grout was then poured into the pile jacket.
