Hydrotex™ Fabric Formed Concrete Systems are being installed worldwide, Hurricane Storm Protection in the severest of geotechnical and environmental conditions, creating a new level in erosion, scour and containment protection. Caribbean GeoTextile's Fabric Formed Concrete Systems outperform older, traditional methods of rip-rap, concrete slope paving, gabions and precast concrete blocks.
Hydrotex fabric formed concrete linings replace stone rip rap or slope paving because they cost less than the older methods but have higher hydraulic ability. Hydrotex fabric formed concrete systems have been proven to outperform all other methods. Hydrotex Linings with permissible shear stress in excess of 2.87 kN/m2, provide the high degree of stability to perform against high velocity flow. Hydrotex fabric formed concrete linings outperorm hydraulically rip-rap, gabions, precast blocks, and conventional concrete slope paving. They lessen uplift forces due to outflow and excess pore water pressure, lessen hydraulic uplift by slowing channel velocities, and conform to soil profiles to reduce the potential for scour.
