Revetments & Erosion Control

Geosynthetics offer many benefits over traditional construction techniques, by reducing project costs, construction times and reducing the volume of natural materials that are used and therefore reducing the environmental impact of transportation.

ABG Geosynthetics have developed proven products to protect surfaces and provide erosion control functions. Solutions include protecting building infrastructure, drainage systems, tree roots under drives and paths, reservoir and landfill liners and membranes.

ABG's erosion control products for applications such as surface protection, protecting the structural stability of soils and retaining soil on slopes. Included in the range are biodegradable or non-biodegradable, seeded or unseeded erosion mats and three dimensional geocells used for retaining soils on embankments

Whenever soil is exposed, cut or formed the risk of erosion from wind, rain or water is high. Left unprotected the result is progressive instability and large amounts of silt-laden run-off. The Environment Agency considers silt-laden run-off as a pollutant and is increasingly inclined to prosecute offenders for even minor offenders.

Typical Applications:

  • River banks and wetlands
  • Reclamation of mine workings
  • Lake/reservoir shores
  • Tidal areas/boat wash
  • Topsoil stockpiles
  • Dams, revetments and balancing ponds
  • Unstable and oversteep slopes
  • Landfill Caps
  • Railway cuttings & embankments
  • Highway embankments
  • Spillways, irrigation channels
  • Facing of reinforced earth
  • Newly laid top soil
  • Erosion Protection
  • Wave Protection / Marine Bank Erosion Control

Benefits

  • Immediate protection of the soil surface
  • Ideal microclimate for seed germination
  • Protection of seeds from birds
  • Creates a 'finished' look for new works
  • Extends the suitable laying season
  • Drapes to irregular slope profiles
  • Quick installation 


Typical Clients:

Erosion may occur as a result of human activity or simply that nature needs a helping hand to re-establish vegetation. In all situations an erosion control mat will provide immediate surface protection and will reduce erosion even before the vegetation is established. Tests have shown a reduction in sediment loss of between 70 and 100%.

Rainfall causes erosion of exposed areas in two ways; rain splash and transportation. Both are effectively stopped by an erosion mat. Firstly the mats have high surface cover to prevent the rain drops from pounding into the soil. Secondly, the fibres and threads of the mat prevent run-off water from gathering sufficient velocity to carry the soil particles.
