Fabriform Unimat fabric formed concrete revetments are characterized by a slightly dimpled surface. Permeability approximates that of high quality paving. Criteria for selection of Unimat revetment is the same as that employed in determining the thickness of conventional paving.
Unimat revetments provide protection for ditches, creeks, reservoirs, canals, liner protection, holding ponds, bridge abutments and any where else hard armor protection is required.
When required, weep tubes are installed to allow the relief of hydrostatic pressure uplift.
• Minimum hydraulic friction and maximum impermeability
• Ease of installation above and below water
• Economical, adaptable and durable revetment system
