There is no such thing as off-the-rack when it comes to cable concrete mats. Each project receives custom cable concrete mat manufacturing to ensure that each system is appropriate for your goals and intentions. Keeping your erosion control customized allows us to consider elements that a one-size-fits-all approach may miss. Here is why you should consider the custom approach with International Erosion Control Systems, Inc.
Land conditions can vary
Serving sites nationally, there is a good understanding that erosion control in a desert requires an approach that is radically different from a shore property in the Puget Sound. Terrain, texture and the amount of moisture all vary in different land formations. By using custom cable concrete mat manufacturing on a per-project basis, the site is fully considered in light of all the land conditions to ensure the final product works in controlling erosion.
Water also flows differently at each site
Water is the essence of life and also a bane when it comes to land management. Lakes and rivers need shore and bank protection. Different areas also produce different water levels, meaning more customization when it comes to protection. Landfills also get assaulted by water, and storm drainage management depends on weather and land patterns. With dikes and dams, it is not just present water flow that needs consideration but also the possibilities that could result from serious storms. Taking into account all current and possible scenarios with water flow means customizing cable concrete mats or risking floods and erosion.
Do not forget weather
Some sites get direct sun and flash floods. At other sites, it is all about dry summers and icy, snowy winters. There are also places that receive heavy rainfall each year, and with it, the risk of avalanches and excess water on access roads.
Materials are also customized to sun, water and ice resistance required for the environment. While all mats can stand up to these conditions, there are still adjustments for dominant weather patterns.
Need to remove or reuse?
One unique aspect of these cable concrete mats is the fact that they do not need to be permanent. If they are being used to control erosion during construction, and are no longer needed after construction finishes, they can be used for the next site. Some companies can keep a set of these for temporary purposes while customizing more permanent solutions where they are needed.
Pedestrian or vehicle access
Cable concrete mats are safe for cars, trucks and pedestrians. Rock fill can even up the surface to make them safer for walking. For cars, different adjustments can also maintain the durability to keep driving smooth and allow a good drainage surface, which also helps traction.
