About the Product

ARMORFORM® Fabric Formed Concrete solutions are used to construct a wide range of systems that provide outstanding performance in erosion control, scour protection and lining applications.

The ARMORFORM® erosion control system utilizes double layer woven geotextiles engineered exclusively to serve as forms for casting concrete erosion control revetments and linings. The forms are woven from polyester and/or nylon yarns and are designed with the required mechanical and hydraulic properties of a superior textile form.

ARMORFORM® linings are installed by positioning fabric forms over the areas to be protected and then pumping high-strength, fine aggregate concrete into the forms. The concrete forms can be placed either underwater or on dry land.
