Innovative Erosion Control
Controlling Water Flow:
Most GeoTextile fabric forms offer the following advantages to older systems:
- Concrete Linings Consisting of Hydraulic Resistant Patterned Surfaces
- Reduced Flow Velocity
- Engineered” Hydraulic System
- Reduced Discharge Turbulence
- Maximized Drainage
GeoTextile fabric forms have been installed in millions of application sites worldwide, performing superbly even in highly severe applications. They have out-performed older methods of erosion control and proven to be the superior method for erosion control on concrete slope paving and rip rap.
Thousands of successful installs, coupled with extensive testing of our GeoTextile products have shown that our fabric-formed concrete erosion protection methods are superior to any other method, including older method. Our concrete linings and mats offer superior stability in dealing with high velocity flows.
GeoTextile fabric-formed concrete is more efficient than rip rap and concrete slope paving because of it’s ability to negate uplift forces with it’s flow through pores that reduce channel speed, and by taking on the shape of the ground underneath the mattresses or linings reduces any underscour..
Reduced Uplift Pressures
Uplift pressures are more damaging to older methods of concrete applied to slopes than to our GeoTextile linings and concrete mats and more likely to cause failure to a concrete slope. Because our GeoTextile fabric can be shaped with built-in drainage, the soil underneath is more likely to remain stable, reducing chances of underscore.
