The Flexible Block Matt is also a double-layered fabric constructed with each layer joined to the other in areas that act as hinges, forming the boundaries of rectangular blocks that are inflated with concrete. These hinges provide flexibility to the system and also act to relieve any hydrostatic pressures that may build up behind the mattress.
This matt can be reinforced with steel or Polymer rope inserted through each block for pre-cast lifting or to extend the life to an already permanent solution.
This style of mattress is ideal for:
• Areas where settlement is expected
• Sea-wall toe protection
• Under-sea cable protection
