The properties of polymer concrete guarantee a long service life and the material is characterised by; high compressive and flexural strength, high chemical resistance, low permeability to water and aggressive solutions and there is no steel reinforcement used within any of the ACO Wildlife range of products.
Its’ smooth, non-absorbent surfaces with minimal thermal conductivity form an ideal contact area for amphibians. As the Climate Tunnel contains no metal reinforcement it eliminates the possibility of disorientation to animals arising from distortion of magnetic fields.
Extreme conditions, such as a temporarily flooded tunnels or water flowing through the tunnel will not damage the tunnel components and even cut surfaces retain all their original material properties and do not need protection against corrosion.
