Installing a coastal revetment is simple with HYDROTEX fabric formworks for the casting of concrete.

The best product for armoring shorelines, HYDROTEX is 100% customized to your project’s specifications and requirements.

The geotextile fabric forms are manufactured to fulfill the required designed thickness and allows the mattress to conform to the land as the fabric is pumped with fine aggregate concrete.

Other coastal solutions we offer include rubble mound structure foundations and embankment protection.

How is HYDROTEX used to cast concrete shoreline revetments?

The Problem

Unprotected shorelines or estuaries can erode and encroach upon valuable seaside, lake, or river property such as ports, piers, lighthouses, industrial complexes, and roadways. This can compromise these structures and result in damage that can cost millions of dollars in repairs.

The Solution: HYDROTEX Fabric Forms for the In-Situ Casting of Concrete

Prevent unexpected repair costs by installing a HYDROTEX fabric-formed concrete mattress on shorelines, attenuating erosion as well as scour. Unlike rip rap, our solutions can be customized to a thinner profile while relieving hydrostatic pressure, reducing wave run-up, and resisting shear stresses from hydraulic flow.

HYDROTEX: The Best Shoreline Revetment Product

Coastal and marine engineers should do everything possible to prevent the loss of soil and movement of sediment from shorelines. A HYDROTEX mattress such as Articulating Block will provide the protection required. Both permeable and cable-reinforced, this mattress is the perfect solution to protect shorelines subject to hydraulic friction.

HYDROTEX fabric-formed concrete replaces other methods such as tetrapods, rip rap, and gabions.

Shoreline protection is typically needed for:

Articulating Block Mats form cable-reinforced concrete block mattresses that resist erosive forces. They are often constructed where a revetment is exposed to frontal attack by wave action.

AB Mats are typically used to protect coastlines, canals, rivers, lakes, reservoirs, underwater pipelines, bridge piers, and other marine structures from propeller wash, ship wakes, wind waves, currents, and high velocity flows. They are also used in environmental construction for landfill caps, down chutes, and collector channels.

The AB fabric form consists of a series of compartments linked by an interwoven perimeter. Grout ducts interconnect the compartments, and high-strength revetment cables are installed between and through the compartments and grout ducts.

Once filled, the AB Mats become a mattress of pillow-shaped, rectangular concrete blocks. The interwoven perimeters between the blocks serve as hinges to permit articulation. The cables remain embedded in the concrete blocks to link the blocks together and facilitate articulation.
