Earthlok is a flexible concrete matting system consisting of pyramid shaped, 50 Mpa concrete blocks. The dimensions are 165mm x 165mm base, 50mm x 50mm top, with a height of 60mm. The blocks are interconnected with a 50-50kn geogrid mesh which is inert to most chemicals and has a lifespan of approximately 75 years in direct sunlight. Each block is surrounded by a 40mm spacing enabling vegetation establishment. Earthlok is manufactured at a width of 5metres with the option of a biodegradable nutrition mat underlay to help promote vegetation growth, as well as protect the subgrade while vegetation is being established, or a non woven Polypropylene underlay for applications not requiring vegetation. The concrete mixture has a green star rating of 3, due to the recycled materials included, Slag, recycled sand and recycled water.The concrete can be coloured to suit the surrounding environment. Earthlok is currently manufactured at our production facility in Victoria, however as our facility is mobile, production can be facilitated to sites to minimise product transportation costs. Once the concrete cures it is then cut to specific sizes and rolled up like carpet, ready for distribution to site. Earthlok delivers permanent hard armour protection to prevent soil loss and erosion from wind, rain and water. The pyramid shape of Earthlok utilises the flow of water to force the block down into the subgrade and allows back filling to further anchor the block.
Waterways & Embankments
Earthlok is used for protecting riverbanks, channels, outlets spillways, abutments etc, while preserving their natural environment. The low profile of Earthlok intercepts debris or logs from catching the mat and helps keep the waterway open.
Landfills/Permanent Erosion solution
Earthlok provides a permanent solution to the all to familiar issue of most landfills - erosion. Earthlok is used to protect landfills from erosion. Earthlok can be driven on and requires minimal excavation compared to rip rap.
Temporary roadway/Site access
Earthlok can be used as a temporay roadway for construction site access during wet weather months, therefore eliminating site closure and loss of progress.
