Cellular articulated concrete block (ACB) systems are flexible concrete revetments used to resist the erosive forces of flowing water resulting from elevated velocities and wave action in concentrated flow areas. A typical ACB revetment mat is formed by interlocking precast concrete blocks placed on a geotextile fabric. The interlocking matrix allows versatile structure design for use over varying land contours and grades. ACB's traverse changes in terrain without disrupting the placement patterns and interlocking features of the system, allowing for partial settlement of the underlying foundation without disrupting the integrity of the installation.
The blocks within the (mat) matrix are dense and durable, and the resulting revetment is flexible and porous-(Abt 2001). Voids between blocks allow vegetation to establish over time, decreasing flow velocities and improving final appearance.

Tri-Lock 4010

Tri-Lock is made from concrete, nothing else... no metal to corrode, no other fastening device subject to brasion, just concrete, and the concrete can be made as required for the conditions to be encountered.

The extreme versatility of Tri-Lock provides a variety of site-specific conditions which affect installation in subtle manners. Certain procedures are constant in the proper installation of Tri-Lock.


Selection of Tri-Lock Block

The selection of the proper Tri-Lock System, 4" or 6" is affected by site or project conditions such as soil permeability, flow or wave intensity, soil compaction and slope or grade conditions.

Generally Acceptable Guidelines Are:

  • 2:1 SLOPE
  • Flow Rate: 10-16 fps
  • Wave Rate: 4'-0" Height

Tri-Lock General Installation Rate

  • 3:1 SLOPE
  • 4 PERSON CREW
  • PREPARED SLOPE (GRADED-DRESSED)
  • 2000 - 3000 SQ. FT. PER DAY
Stability

Highly stable, long lasting revetment. Tri-Lock is available in a variety of sizes and weights for maximum protection with differing wave climates for flow velocities.

Flexibility

Flexibility is achieved by a level at the interlock of the Tri-Lock block enabling the system to conform to changing land contours and grades

Permability

Tri-Lock has adequate open area to relieve any hydrostatic pressure across the revetment. Voids are evenly and closely spaced.

Revegetation

The voids in the Tr-Lock System should be filled with top soil and seeded with grass or other vegetation to restore the embankment to it's natural state. The Tri-Lock System will actually promote this regrowth process. There are no projections or abrubt unevenness. Permitting is easy maintenance with conventional grass cutting equipment.

Access

The evenness of Tri-Lock revetments provides a safe surface for both vehicle and pedestrian traffic, allowing easy access to the water's edge.

Design Features

Tri-Lock is made from concrete, nothing else... no metal to corrode, no other fastening device subject to brasion, just concrete, and the concrete can be made as required for the conditions to be encountered. Tri-Lock is a total membrane, not a set of seprate mats functioning indepedently, Every unit in the Tri-Lock System is firmly locked into two adjacement units allowing the revetment to act as one. This feature, as well as enhancing the hydraulic characteristics, prevents major revetment failure which can result from small soil failures that often occur in extreme conditions.

Tri-Lock is forgiving and easily repairable should there be mechanical damage.
