|An ARSC in its transport wrapper being transferred
by the excavator that built the stockpile from a pickup to the edge of the
stockpile where it will be deployed.
|The ARSC is
transport and storage by its integral cruciform transport bag.
|With its carrying
handles, the bag is easy to
manoeuvre and position on the ground at the edge of the stockpile half
along one edge. If it is windy it is
best to place the ARSC on the upwind side.
|The transport bag is
unfastened and the two sides of the ARSC are rolled out along the
adjacent to the stockpile. It is best
to fill the first water ballast tube when it has been rolled out
secures the cover and prevents the possibility of wind movement
garden leaf blower does the job in less than 5 minutes, it is
inexpensive and readily replaceable
| The ARSC is rolled
plateau; this is easy because of the large diameter of the roller.
|When the covering has
been completed the roller is deflated and the remaining water ballast
filled.It takes 2 people about 15
minutes to deploy an ARSC, and a similar time to roll it back again. The ground-sealing water-ballast tubes have
been filled.They exert about 17 kg per
linear meter.A stockpile 25m x 25m
needs about 1.75 m3 water.Rainwater
cannot enter an ARSC stockpile and the cover
will bear the
weight of adults
