Cast a custom concrete scour apron with HYDROTEX fabric forms for the casting of concrete.
Adding scour aprons to any dam, mining, or other facility is easy with custom-made HYDROTEX fabric-formed concrete mattresses.
Our products can also be used to meet other common scour protection requirements such as bridge pier scour protection, prop scour protection, and rubble mound structure foundations.
How is HYDROTEX used to cast scour aprons?
Scour can happen anywhere, especially at the base of locks, dams, and port quay walls. Left unattended, such scour can cause damage to the surrounding infrastructure, limiting its effectiveness and lifespan. Don’t leave these vulnerable areas to the mercy of the severe hydraulic events they experience.
The Solution: HYDROTEX Fabric Forms for the In-Situ Casting of Concrete
Effectively prevent critical failure of costly dam, port, or mining infrastructures by casting a concrete scour protection mattress with HYDROTEX fabric formworks for the casting of concrete.
This mattress is placed underwater at the base of locks, dams, and quay walls, permanently remediating and protecting against severe scour.

Scour Aprons for Dams
HYDROTEX fabric-formed concrete mats are perfect to cast scour aprons.
These scour aprons can help you prevent erosion at conduits or anywhere else in or around the dam.
Scour aprons are especially useful at maintaining healthy soil conditions and providing a buffer between the original soil and the dam’s man-made structures. Installation is simple: lay out the geosynthetic panels on the area you’d like to protect, then pump with fine aggregate concrete.
