Simple and quick to install Can be used as a temporary or permanent structure Ideal for rapid water and river bank reinforcement to combat floods and land slides Easily constructed into curves to accommodate bends in a river
By overlapping at half block lengths in alternate directions the reverse slots provide a rigid format with a uniformly pitched centrally located aperture. These cavities can be filled with various materials to form permanent or temporary constructions. Steel pilings can be used through the centre of each cast to add additional reinforcement and strength when required. The blocks can be used below the water level rising above water level as needed. Further blocks can be added to or taken away from the original structure at a later date if required.
Ideal for fast response emergencies requiring strength and durability, the blocks are quick to install and can create a temporary or permanent structure.
Ideally the construction is back filled to ensure its integrity, or scalpings can be used to accommodate drainage making the blocks an excellent option for flood risk assessment and management.
