Storm Mat & Concrete Bags
Fabriform® Concrete Bags are made from the same high strength nylon as the Fabriform® Pile Jackets.
Fabriform® Concrete Bags are usually the largest type of revetment. One advantage of the Concrete Bag is the increased size and volume that each Concrete Bag can achieve.
The Storm Mat is usually smaller in size than Concrete Bags; the most common size is the 16" thick Storm Mat. However, the Storm Mats can be installed in individual blocks, or assembled end-to-end or side-by-side into monolithic mats. They can also be placed on top of one another to created stepped walls. The Storm Mat is superb at creating stepped walls because it is less prone to rolling due to its block shape.
Some areas of installation for Storm Mats and Concrete Bags are: toe protections along rivers and bridge piers, scour protection at cruise terminals, sub-aqueous pipeline outfalls, groins and breakwaters, and in-stream structures to alter hydraulic flows in rivers.
Storm Mats and Concrete Bags provide superior scour protection with significantly reduced labor and equipment requirements.
