Flexible Concrete Mats

Flexible By Design | Low Cost | Rapid Installation

Flexible Concrete Mats offer project designers an array of environmental solutions for common problems such as erosion control, improving drainage channels, water flow in storm water inlets and outlets, vehicle beach access points, boat ramps, scour protection of bridge abutments and much more.

What Are Flexible Concrete Mats

Flexible concrete mats are manufactured in Australia consisting of trapeziod concrete blocks locked together and embedded into a high-strength geogrid.

There is sufficient spacing between the blocks that gives the mat flexibility and allows for optional vegetation growth which can assist with long term anchoring of the mat combined with natural aesthetics to the completed project.

The mat is packaged in rolls, making transporting and installation efficient and cost effective.
