Cirtex Rock Bags

VERSATILE AND ECO-FRIENDLY ALTERNATIVE TO GABIONS AND RIP RAP, OFFERING NUMEROUS ADVANTAGES

Cirtex Rock Bags stand as flexible and sturdy net bags filled with rock, offering a versatile and ecologically sound substitute for concrete, gabions, and rock rip rap. These bags are employed to counteract scour and erosion in aquatic and marine settings.

Presented in both 2-ton and 4-ton sizes, they are crafted from a resilient UV-resistant polyester net and are filled with rock at the installation site. Once in place, they establish a shield against erosion, delivering a swift, long-lasting, and economically viable resolution.

The smaller rocks within the net bags moderate flow velocities by harnessing water energy through the generous spaces between the rocks. These abundant interstitial gaps also foster habitats for invertebrates, collecting fine particles like gravel and silt that support the natural growth of vegetation over time.
