Articulated Concrete Block System
Articulated Concrete Block System is an engineered erosion control product, a great alternative to loose rock rip rap for shore and slope reinforcement.
Cable Concrete® is an articulated concrete block revetment system, developed by International Erosion Control Systems, to control various types of erosion due to water, wind, or vehicular traffic.
This system is made up of 2.44m x 4.88m long (8’x16’) mats placed side by side and clamped together to provide one homogeneous erosion protection system. Smaller mats are available as required. The mats consist of concrete blocks interlocked by integrally woven stainless steel cables, which are poured within each block. Geotextile fabric is attached to the base of each concrete mat. The blocks typically have 292.10mm (11.5”) square top faces and 393.70mm (15.5”) square bottoms. Variations between the mat systems are the block heights and weights.
It is recommended that after the installation of the mat system the void spaces be backfilled (and seeded if vegetation is desired). Vegetation will provide more erosion protection as well as an even surface for vehicular and pedestrian traffic. Any surface application should be placed after the inspection of the clamping and anchoring system.
