DURA-GUARDTM MARINE MATTRESSES


DURA-GUARD™ Marine Mattresses are constructed of a durable co-polymeric reinforcement grid fabricated into low profile mattress shaped containers that can be filled with locally available materials such as crushed rock, broken concrete, bricks, tile, oyster shells, etc.

They are relatively low in cost and due to their flexible and porous construction they are able to absorb wave and wind energy, thereby reducing the scour problems associated with sea defenses such as rigid concrete .

DURA-GUARD™ Marine Mattresses can also be placed on sloping hill sides or as as a base for vertical walls constructed of stacked courses of gabion baskets.

 DURA-GUARD™ Marine Mattresses are durable and more economical than type 316L stainless steel. They are resistant to salt water corrosion and all naturally occurring forms of chemical, biological and environmental degradation.

 Typically Applications:

 Coastal Erosion Control Projects
 Shore Protection
 Channel Linings
  Check Dams  (see photo below)     
 Bridge Scour Protection
 Breakwater Foundations or Cores for Breakwaters
 Causeways, Levees, Dikes and Bridge Approach Projects        
High-Strength Reefs and Fills Constructed in Submerged Conditions

   PERFORMANCE:

DURA-GUARD™ Marine Mattresses provide increased hydraulic performance and construction advantages ... also more economical than  conventional solutions such as rip-rap and stainless steel.

They also conform to land contours and site configurations while resisting scour far better than rigid systems. Because the co-polymer grids resist all naturally occurring forms of chemical, biological and environmental degradation, they are specified for salt water, industrial run-off conditions and contaminated sediment capping where other types of materials would deteriorate rapidly.

DURA-GUARD™ Marine Mattresses are available in various styles and thickness options to meet specific project requirements and are a durable, noncorrosive solution to many coastal and inland waterway erosion problems.

DURA-GUARD™ Marine Mattresses owe their strength and durability to high performance geo-synthetic reinforcement grids.
