Mattresses made of double-layer fabrics (polyester and polyamide) with high strength . Particularly suitable as mattresses for erosion control and / or stabilization of banks and slopes, protection and ballast of underwater pipelines , flexible formwork for any underwater injection with cement mixtures.
The filled structure has a thickness ranging from 12 cm to 33 cm. The quality of concrete used is extremely important. The principle applied to remove the excess water is based on the evacuation of the same through the pores of the fabric (due to the pressure exercised by the mixture pumping ). Then the fabric will work as a sieve and it is designed to prevent loss of fine particles through the pores. It is important to use cement mixes with the right flow, quality and strength.
FLEXITEX is used in several applications, such as:
Banks and dams reinforcement or surface protection
Coastal erosion control or foot protection of docks or piers
Emergency works for floods or typhoons
Protection of landfills slopes
Ballasting and protection of underwater pipelines
Flexitex is cheap, easy to install, allows reductions of time and installation costs compared to traditional reinforcement works with concrete (you can cover areas up to 700 square meters per day), is very strong ( made with only high tenacity polyester fibers), it can be supplied in rolls of varying widths from 3.75 to 5.30 m or in pre-measuring panels, equipped with filling and venting nozzles and zip on the sides for connections.
