The use of stone, concrete, or other hard armor materials for protection of embankments have been used for centuries. Over the past several decades the advancement of low profile manufactured revetment systems has increased the speed of installation and overall stability relative to the traditional thick layered rip rap approach. JLSC offers several solutions around the advantages of natural rock encapsulated in an engineered geosynthetic for long-term performance.
Tensar Marine Mattress Systems
With the development of the Tensar Triton® Marine mattress, the open void space and wave energy dissipating advantages of stone, combined with the stability of a linked mattress create a superior revetment and erosion control system. The polymer encapsulated stone mattress has provided long-lasting revetment solutions in highly corrosive environments while mitigating the high-energy wave action found along coast lines and large canals.
Kyowa® Filter Units
Embankment stabilization along moving water such as streams and lakes can be a challenge and often endanger transportation routes or even man-made structures. Kyowa’s stone filled Filter Units provide a controlled and encapsulated rock delivery system that conforms easily to irregular scour holes and washed-out slope toes. Once installed, the contained rock is much more stable than loose rock and provides a much higher long-term protection from future erosion. business offers? Say it here.
