The Armour unit, called the Xbloc®, is a simple, robust and reliable single layer armour unit. It has considerable structural integrity as an individual element and has great hydraulic stability in the armour layer. Casting and placing the Xbloc® unit is straightforward and is very cost effective. Xbloc® units naturally find a stable position on the slope and they will automatically interlock with no specific orientation of the individual unit needed.
The highly porous armour layer minimizes wave overtopping and wave reflection. Xbloc® is the most economical single layer armour unit, cost less to construct and are virtually maintenance free.
