ACEFormer - Durable Polyester (PET) or Polypropylene (PP) Geotextile
From Geotextile Mattress
The geotextile mattress made of durable polyester (PET) or polypropylene (PP) geotextile.
ACEFormer is constructed with two layers of high strength woven geotextiles. ACEFormer is suitable for diverse applications. The woven fabric can be either PP or PET material. It is comprised of mortar or concrete filled elements and fabricated in many structures, such as:
FP Type is a double layer woven fabric and with many small permeable areas from 25 to 65 cm2 to form single layer fabric called “Filter Point”. The Filter Point can release the water pressure beneath ACEFormer to increase the stability of the structure. Filled ACEFormer with undulating surface can reduce energy of wave or river flow to lower the flow velocity and wave run-up.
V Type resembles FP Type ACEFormer. Its well-distributed filter area formed single permeable fabric with 900 cm2 areas which is larger than FP Type; these also can be removed for planting or vegetating purpose. Once the planting complete, the root of plant could firmly grip the soil to stabilize slope and the plant or vegetation increase the coefficient of hydraulic friction to resist the water erosion as well.
L Type ACEFormer is designed to create the discontinuous and foursquare block with about 2,500cm2 areas of L shape filter fabric. Adjacent blocks are merely jointed by multitudinous narrow joints. The aim of the innovative product is to shun the comprehensive failure of unpredictable and serious disaster. The blocks will be an independent one as long as the joints fractured.
ACEFormer is mainly applied to slope and river/channel protection engineering as a cover layer which prevents or controls soil erosion, piping, waving, seepage, undermining, scouring, and beautify the environment etc.
