The products

Rockshield HDâ„¢ is a heavy duty flexible three-dimensional bi-planar extruded diamond-structured plastic mesh. It is wrapped around underground pipe as protection of the coating systems on the pipe when they are buried underground. It offers a consistent thickness throughout the width of each roll or pad to provide full width protection to your pipeline during backfill operations. Rockshield HDâ„¢ also offers protection from abrasive objects after installation, prohibiting geologic movements from damaging your pipeline. Rockshield HDâ„¢ may be installed in pad or roll form, depending on pipe diameter. Boddingtons also manufactures another version of ROCKSHIELDâ„¢. This product is available ex-stock directly from Boddingtons and in 1.5 m wide x 30 m rolls. The weight per square metre is 950 grams.

WAVELAY® and DETECTAMESH® underground marker and warning tapes and meshes are manufactured from rot-resistant virgin polyethylene and polypropylene plastics. They have a stainless steel tracer wire embedded within the plastic product to ensure long life, strength and optimum detectability. Boddingtons can also supply these products custom made to the customer’s specifications with special custom messages widths and thicknesses.

PROTECTAMESHâ„¢ pipe protection mesh is unique as it offers the dual functionality of protection and warning of your underground pipeline in one product. With its high impact resistance properties you can be ensured the cable or pipe can remain unharmed by rogue excavators. PROTECTAMESHâ„¢ combines a high impact extruded high density polyethylene mesh in bright colours such as yellow and orange with a warning tape laminated to the surface of the mesh. PROTECTAMESHâ„¢ is high strength and easy to install in roll form. The product is also available in a heavier and thicker version called PROTECTAMESHâ„¢ MaxiGridâ„¢.
