Reliable erosion control for spillways is essential. Finding a solution that is reliable, versatile and cost-effective is a priority for businesses and municipalities. Waterways and water-diverting infrastructure are incredibly useful when it comes to controlling the flow of water in order to carry it where it needs to go. Additionally, effective spillways can help divert water away, which prevents excess water from causing potential hazards related to high water velocities and the buildup of water pressure.
One of the best ways to control erosion and improve spillways is by utilizing closed cell cable concrete. Closed cell cable concrete block systems combat significant erosion and can withstand the elements to provide a strong, reliable and economical solution for spillways and overflow structures.
How closed cell concrete works
Closed cell cable concrete systems are easy-to-assemble block systems that are clamped together to provide a versatile erosion control solution. The closed cell system is held in place by high tensile anchors that provide strength and stability. Because the blocks are clamped together, their structure is highly versatile and it can be installed to accommodate virtually any type of spillway system. Once the system is in place, it protects the spillway from erosion, no matter the size or scale of the spillway system or the amount of water that is flowing through the system.
Benefits of closed cell cable concrete
- Versatility: The biggest benefit that closed cell cable concrete offers is its versatility. Because of the design of the material, a spillway system of any size, from a small dyke to a massive spillway, can be accommodated. Because closed cell concrete is tailor-made to fit the spillway that it is being used for, it has much more stability than some other materials that do not fit spillways perfectly. Closed cell concrete is an innovative solution to erosion control that can be implemented relatively easily.
- Increased reinforcement: Closed cell cable concrete systems are designed to withstand unexpected circumstances, such as quick release overflows, without failing. Other materials used for spillways tend to buckle under such pressure due to poor construction or an imperfect fit. By choosing closed cell cable concrete, you can ensure that your spillway is prepared for sudden issues as they arise.
- Affordability: Even though closed cell cable concrete is extremely reliable, it is also an affordable erosion control option. It is a cost-effective material that is easy to maintain and resistant to ice and freezing and thawing damage.
