When is scour protection, abutment protection, or pile jackets needed?
If you are working on a project that features a bridge, pier, or other structure that crosses water, then you must take the necessary precautions to prevent hydraulic forces from compromising the structure’s stability.
An effective way to do that is by placing HYDROTEX, a concrete armor at the base of the bridge’s piers or piles, which protects against localized vortices that could leave the pile caps exposed.
Why choose HYDROTEX® for your bridge and pier scour protection project?
Bridges and piers are subject to underwater scour, leaving the surrounding environment vulnerable to catastrophic structural failure.
HYDROTEX fabric-formed concrete mattresses are designed to be installed both on land and underwater, making them the top solution for engineers, consulting firms, and DOT directors looking to protect bridges from scour before it compromises the bridge’s stability.
The most popular solutions for bridges and piers are scour protection and remediation, abutment protection, and pile jackets and seals.
Our team of highly trained and skilled engineers will carry out all necessary calculations and walk you through our recommended solutions for your specific bridge or pier project. Give us a call at 1-800-253-0561 to connect with one of our engineers today.
