Rapid Deployment Military Systems
Tested and used by several of the world’s armed forces, GRT’s soil stabilisation and dust control solutions have numerous military applications – improving safety, increasing mobilisation speed and ultimately saving lives
All Weather, Dust Free Landing Sites and Runways
Earthen runways generate dust and are also susceptible to deterioration from wet weather – particularly in tropical climates.
LHRT: 1000 can be used to quickly stabilise and seal runways, using standard military construction equipment such as graders, water trucks and rollers.
For initial deployment, LHRT: 2000, an ultra-concentrate product added to water and suited to broad-scale application, can be used to initially dust-suppress these areas. As an ultra-concentrate, 40-80L (depending on the soil type) is all that is needed to treat a hectare (10,000m2) of open soil.
Dust created during helicopter landing and take-off creates a period of vulnerability during which pilots and soldiers can easily become disorientated, especially while under attack. With little to no ground preparation required, LHRT: 3000 can be applied to open surfaces, immediately stopping dust generation for months at a time. This can help this the leading cause of helicopter crashes with associated high cost to lives and capital.
Military Camps, Parade Grounds, Temporary Roads
LHRT: 1000 achieves a stable layer of clear, bonded material resistant to wind erosion, rain impact, pedestrians, and traffic. This product has a high resistance to UV degradation and eliminates the dust and erosion of a treated surface, when used to maintain the surface.
For transport routes of constant LV, truck or aircraft traffic, simply utilise a higher rate to produce a more suitable, durable outcome.
LHRT: 1000 is a specifically developed, polymer technology used and approved by heavy industry, worldwide.
Combat & Natural Disaster Zone Dust Control
When buildings and other infrastructure are damaged because of combat or demolished due to natural disasters, many hazardous dusts can be released into the environment.
This is a significant health hazard for the civilian population as well as military personnel deployed for combat or humanitarian reasons.
LHRT: 2000 has been specifically designed to encapsulate and control these harmful dusts.
An ultra-concentrate, LCP technology LHRT: 2000 can be used to effectively capture and control:
Asbestos Fibres – still used or present used in many buildings
Silica Dusts – harmful dusts commonly generated from crushed concrete and hard rock
Heavy Metals – present in buildings, munitions and underground services
Contaminated Dusts – dust contaminated with chemicals due to spills, accidents, fires, natural disasters, and combat activity
As little as 80L of LHRT: 2000 can lock down 10,000m2 of dusty urban landscape, making transport and handling of the product the logistical product of choice.
Logistics Yards and Vehicle
Dust is a huge source of equipment and vehicle damage. It accelerates the wearing of any moving parts and is in itself a significant respiratory health hazard for personnel.
Heavy trucks, forklifts, and tracked machinery (whether tanks or earthmoving machinery) damage all surfaces and generate dust.
Only one treatment can handle this punishment – LHRT: 3000.
This technology substantially reduces the need to remove in-situ material and import specialized pavements, or investing in high cost treatments such as concrete. LHRT: 3000 is adaptable to many soil types, and works by soaking into the treated soil and simply weighs down
particles, preventing them from becoming airborne.
