EnviroRock™ containers are extremely robust and are designed to be filled with sand, soil, gravel, recycled material, treated materials or a combination of the above so that they form a stable, durable Geocontainer®.
The versatility and durability of EnviroRock'” provides solutions to structures such as walls, groynes, reef structures, flow control structures and other applications In marine and inland waterway environments. The containers are made from a specifically designed and manufactured nonwoven, needlepunched, staple fibre geotextile. Enhanced filtration combined with resistance to puncture, abrasion and UV makes EnviroRock'” ideal for use in coastal applications providing maximum durability in harsh conditions. The sewn seams are uniquely configured to maximise the mechanical characteristics of the geotextlle and provide long term durability in a wide range of environments.
The EnviroRock™ Geocontainer® product range covers a large range of sizes and systems ranging from a handfilled 40kg Geocontainer® to hydraulically filled mega-containers and geotubes. Specialist filling and placement equipment is available for most geocontainer sizes to provide both a consistent and attractive finish.
EnviroRock™ containers are specifically designed for use in the marine environment and they provide an excellent solution for constructing sea walls and revetments. Advantages to EnviroRock™ include the fact that insitu materials are used, thereby reducing imported materials and beach contamination.
The robustness and stability of the EnviroRock™ containers also provide solutions for other marine structures such as groynes and breakwaters. These structures extend out into the wave zone and provide marina and beach protection, sand movement control and river training. The size of the Geocontainer® can be selected based on the wave climate and other conditions to ensure stability under the most extreme conditions.
Increased boating activity and public waterway use has led to even more erosion of riverbanks and lake shorelines. EnviroRock™ containers can be used for inland applications such as revetment structures, erosion and scour protection structures, slipway protection and groynes, and are ideal for many riverbank protection applications.
The construction methods used to create the EnviroRock™ structures can also be applied to temporary structure and emergency protection measures. Temporary structures such as bunds or cofferdams can be quickly constructed and either removed or buried as part of continued construction. The rapid deployment of the Geocontainer® facilitates its use for emergency protection works such as sea wall toe protection and sand protection.
EnviroRock™ containers can be used in many other applications, They can be customised to any feasible size or material type and used in applications such as artificial reefs, raised garden beds and beach access stairs.
