Articulated Concrete Cable Block Mats

WHAT IS IT?

AB Mats are an interconnected permeable hard armour protection system. The concrete cable block mat system is interconnected by polypropylene rope or stainless steel cables, allowing each individual block to be flexible and form to the terrain of the ground. This interconnected block system is available in an easy manageable size that can be joined to cover a large area.

PHYSICAL PROPERTIES

Like a heavy-duty permeable concrete mattress. One mat consists of 3 x 6 Concrete Blocks that are interconnected by cable or rope embedded into each block to form one mat.

Each mat is 1.2 x 2.4m in total and weighs 616kg.

  • Mat Dimensions: 1.2 x 2.4m
  • Mat Weight: 616kg per mat
  • 18 concrete blocks (3×6) interconnected by cable
  • Interconnecting cable selection:
    • 16mm Polypropylene Marine Rope or
    • 8mm Stainless Steel Cable
  • Mats are stacked onto pallets for ease of transport (4 mats per pallet)
  • Pallet costs are extra and will be calculated with freight costs when quoted)

WHAT MAKES IT ARTICULATED?

18 concrete blocks are interconnected by either polypropylene rope or stainless-steel cable, to form one mat. The cable creates a flexible joint that will help “form” to the contour and terrain of surface it’s placed on.

The cables are looped on the sides of the concrete mat, and when laid side-by-side Cable clamps are used to join each mat together. The mats when joined together can cover a large area.

WHAT IS THE AB MAT BEST FOR?

This is more heavy duty than the rolls and best mat for higher velocity flow, slope stabilisation, roads, causeways, and creek crossings. Also this is best mat for wide stormwater drains and water channels, where there may be a higher velocity of water.

APPLICATIONS

• Slope stabilisation

• Bridge Abutments

• Retention Ponds

• Roads

• Causeways and creek crossings

• Stormwater Drains and Channels

• Inlets and Outlet Drains

JOINING AND ANCHORING AB MATS

To cover a large area the AB Mats are joined together. Cable clamps on the cable loops secure them together.

As standard you will need four cable clamps with every mat. (Refer to your engineer or site conditions for variations)

16mm Cable Clamps for the Rope – 4 per mat

8mm Cable Clamps for the Cable – 4 per mat

Other Anchoring items:

  • Ubar Anchors
  • Stainless Steel Zip Ties
