Shoreblock® SD

Fabrication of a Shoreblock SD mat is accomplished by threading corrosive resistant steel or special synthetic cable in one direction through a series of blocks. Cables are then secured to the mattress with corrosive resistant hardware. Cables are sized to provide a 5 to 1 cable strength to mat weight ratio to insure safe handling while providing extraordinary strength in the system. Longitudinal cables are looped together at the ends of each row of blocks in the mat assembly for easy handling and anchoring. In most markets, ACBs are competitive in cost to 12" diameter (or greater) rock (or riprap) placed in an 18" or greater blanket thickness. In most markets, ACBs are competitive with gabion mattresses and ACBs are typically cheaper than cast in place concrete.

Shoreblock SD mats are assembled according to the size required for a particular project. Each individual block is inspected prior to being incorporated into a revetment mat. Fabrication of a Shoreblock concrete mat is accomplished by threading corrosive resistant steel or special synthetic cable through a series of blocks. Cables are then secured to the mattress with corrosive resistant hardware. Cables are sized to provide a 5 to 1 cable strength to mat weight ratio to insure safe handling while providing extraordinary strength in the system. Longitudinal cables are looped together at the ends of each row of blocks in the mat assembly for easy handling and anchoring.

Shoreblock Units are manufactured in accordance with ASTM C90, D6684-04 and C140 and the following criteria:
  1. Concrete Unit Weight 130-150 lbs./CF
    1. Minimum Compression Strength 4,000 PSI
    2. Maximum Absorption 7%
    3. Dimensional Tolerance + 1/8"
  2. Galvanized or Polyester Cabling
