The Flexible Block Matt from Erosion Protection Systems is a double-layered fabric revetment mattress constructed with each layer joined to the other in areas that act as hinges, forming the boundaries of rectangular blocks that are inflated with grout.
These hinges provide flexibility to the system and also act to relieve any hydrostatic pressures that may build up behind the mattress. This Flexible Block Matt can be reinforced with steel or Polymer rope inserted through each block for pre-cast lifting, or to extend the life to an already permanent solution.
This Flexible Block Matt style of revetment mattress is ideal for the protection of:
- The toe of sea walls
- Under sea cables
- Areas where settlement is expected
