The fact that wood and plastic can be used perfectly as a combination, is proven by this project in Balk. The principal required the following; preservation of the protected townscape, but sustainable with regard to the waterline, was perfectly completed by Atsma Grond- en waterwerken from Uitwellingerga.
By using Prolock Omega as bank protection, the lifespan of 60 years as a minimum is guaranteed. By subsequently finishing the construction with hardwood purlins and a Azobé jetty, naturally FSC certified, the appearance is as it has always been.
Prolock is marked as a hybrid system suited for applications as a light underwater piling, up to dam wall constructions when compared with a light steel dam wall. By using different types of finishing, it is possible to achieve almost any appearance. In short, also with regard to the appearance it is very versatile.
