Monolithic’s Pond Liners: A Quality Product

How do you keep water in a pond, canal or reservoir from seeping away? Or, how do you keep contaminants such as oil, industrial chemicals, even arsenic from seeping into the water? “Pond liners are the answer – provided they are made of quality material and manufactured and installed properly,” says David South, president of Monolithic. David points out that Monolithic Airforms, one of the company’s divisions, manufactures pond liners using reinforced PVC (polyvinyl chloride) geomembranes*, in virtually any size and thickness needed.

The Monolithic Pillow Tank

Now that the pillow tank is full of water, it can be used for a multitude of purposes.

Monolithic has been building products, such as pillow tanks, with architectural-grade fabrics for more than 20 years. To date we’ve built these tanks for ourselves but not for the public. Now we’re introducing two sizes: 1200 gallons and 450 gallons. But custom sizes can also be built to order. These tanks can hold anything from potable water to various caustic materials.

Strengthening a Large Creek Bank

The bank was rough and we did not intend to greatly change it. We smoothed a few spots. Our goal was bank stabilization – not a seemingly new bank that looked manufactured.

We received a call from a homeowner in Forreston, Texas. She wanted us to examine the creek bank in front of her house. The creek had seriously started to erode and her house was seriously getting closer to the creek. She was really worried about it falling into the creek if she lost a few more feet.

A Delightful New Product: The Monolithic Gazebo

The Monolithic Gazeedome — This dome-shaped, long-lasting, low maintenance gazebo was designed by Mike South, using EcoShell I technology.

Using EcoShell I technology, our Vice President and Operations Director, Mike South, recently designed a dome-shaped gazebo that has a 20-foot diameter, is not only quick and easy to build, but is long-lasting, low maintenance and very versatile.

Is there an alternative to concrete or steel water tanks? Happily, there is and it’s a good one. Consider the Monolithic Fabric Water Tank. It consists of a heavy duty fabric liner that’s shaped like a giant hockey puck and fitted into a concrete revetment.

OMEGAball

OMEGAball — “OMEGAball” stands for Oversized, Monolithic, Enormous, Gigantic, Airformed Ball.

It was 100 degrees outside on July 4th, 1980 in Menan, Idaho. The town was having a huge celebration complete with a flag-raising, sunrise breakfast, booths, games, parade, fireworks and a dance. Normally, at an occasion such as this, the kids would be running around competing in the three-legged race and bean-bag toss, and the adults would be relaxing under the big shade trees, but not this year. No, this year the adults were sweating and running under the sun the same as the kids. The adults were playing OMEGAball – a game no one can resist.

Airformed Culverts

Finished culvert — Once the concrete dries, simply slide the airform out to be used again and again.  The dirt can be backfilled in a few days, and you have a simple, permanent, culvert.

Monolithic’s Airform technology can be used to build culverts. What’s more, this technology produces quality products for less money.

Monolithic Bridges

Each bridge section is independent and designed for full highway loads. Any number of sections can be used to create bridges for small to wide waterways. They can be like the old Roman viaducts.

Monolithic® Bridge technology represents an innovative solution that allows bridge construction to be stronger, longer lasting and more affordable. Historically, most bridges have been the domain of the standard, rectangular, steel or wooden form of construction. Unfortunately, these bridges have not withstood the test of time. Consequently, city and county governments are seeking affordable, yet permanent solutions for rebuilding these bridges using concrete. A Monolithic Bridge is just such a solution.

Monolithic Cut-and-Cover Tunnels

Monolithic Cut-and-Cover Conveyor Tunnel

Need an underground tunnel to move people, water, or stored material, such as grain, coal or fertilizer? Need sewer pipes or a protective housing for cables? Any and all of these needs can be filled with Monolithic Construction Technology. It uses an innovative, Airformed process to construct cut-and-cover underground tunnels that cost less but have many advantages not available in standard, rectangular, concrete tunnel construction.
