ArmorFlex revetment systems combine the favorable aspects of
lightweight blankets and meshes such as porosity, flexibility,
vegetation encouragement and habitat enhancement with non-erodible
self-weight and the high tractive force resistance of a rigid lining.
ArmorFlex has proven to be an aesthetic and functional alternative to
dumped stone riprap, gabions, structural concrete and other heavy-duty,
durable erosion protection systems.
Benefits of the ArmorFlex System:
- Engineered block system supported by extensive full-scale
testing - this verified performance means long-term performance without
- 20% open area - Allows full vegetation for the entire system to meet regulation demands and provide an aesthetic solution.
- Fast and low cost installation - Substantial savings on large projects when compared to large diameter riprap.
