A partially submerged construction site comes with a few surprise challenges you wouldn’t encounter in a more conventional construction setting. Whether you’re concerned with dewatering or making sure your worksite is visible to others, there are several important factors to consider. Fortunately, the Aqua-Barrier comes equipped with multiple safety features to make sure your workspace is safe and watertight.
An Aqua-Barrier is designed for more than just lower costs and environmental friendliness. For many dewatering projects, the choice to use an inflatable cofferdam is also one of the best decisions regarding workplace safety you could make. Let’s look at a few key features that make the Aqua-Barrier a remarkably safe choice for a safe construction project.
Reflective Tape (Available for Purchases Only)
Anyone who enjoys biking or jogging at night knows the importance of having reflective clothing or accessories to make sure drivers can see you. Likewise, a construction site active after dark needs to be visible for both safety’s sake and to make sure that the already-completed work isn’t damaged. If your construction site is surrounded by an Aqua-Barrier, you have an excellent option for nighttime visibility: reflective tape, available for purchased inflatable cofferdams. This highly reflective accessory will ensure that anyone passing by can see the edge of your construction site and know where to avoid.
The Aqua-Barrier’s durable material will rarely rip or tear, but when it does, you’ll need repairs pretty quickly. Fortunately, the manufacturer can easily make your inflatable cofferdam as good as new. In the meantime, use a specially designed patch to seal up any tears and keep using your Aqua-Barrier until you can have full repairs completed.
Simple Connections for a Watertight Seal
For large-scale construction projects, you may end up needing more than one Aqua-Barrier to completely enclose your worksite. Fortunately, while there’s no way to truly link multiple cofferdams together, you can do the next best thing by stacking the ends. The durable material of an inflatable cofferdam creates a watertight seal that guarantees your safety as you continue working. Keep water and debris outside your construction zone with this dependable seal.
Pro Tip: The seal works best if your Aqua-Barrier is installed correctly. Make sure you know the right ways to unroll and inflate your cofferdam.
An Excellent Construction Choice
For many construction projects, the multiple safety features and design offered by the Aqua-Barrier provide a huge advantage. Whether your worksite needs heightened visibility to reduce accidents, or whether you’re just concerned that water might get back in, an inflatable cofferdam will keep you confident and secure.
