Enka-Mattress

Protects concrete until it's cured

overview

Economic alternative for erosion protection applications in hydraulic and coastal works.

Two layer geotextile mattress

Two layer geotextile mattress

The mattress is filled with fine aggregate concrete and acts as a shutter until the concrete is cured. The hydraulic characteristics of the fabric allow a slow evacuation of water from the concrete mixture limit the fine cement particles from getting through, above or below water.

FUNCTIONS
  • Erosion control, slope protection, underwater repairs.
  • Two types of Enka Mattresses — permeable and impermeable.
  • Permeable concrete mattress with filter points.
  • Impermeable concrete mattress with connection threads.
  • Provides high strength, density and abrasion resistance.

Benefits

  • Thinner than rock revetment.
  • Can be installed on steep slopes without difficulty.
  • Adapts easily to the contours of the subgrade during filling.
  • Reduces the potential for scour.
  • Adapts easily to complicated shapes.
  • Perfect controlled thickness, no matter the slope.

Features

Features

  • The undulating surface of the filter point mattress breaks the hydraulic energy, reduces the water velocity, and so reduces wave run-up.
  • The cobbled surface of the impermeable mattress gives low hydraulic resistance.
  • Industrial zippers ensure fastening of adjacent panels.
Applications enabled by this product

Dykes

Erosion is a risk when dykes are under regular attack, while 'piping' may cause serious damage during high water. Geotextiles can be used for soil stability while 3D erosion prevention mats can be installed above water level.

Scour & Erosion Protection

Our products combine ballast with filtration to withstand the strong shear forces involved with underwater foundation elements such as piles, quay walls and bridge abutments.
