Rip Rap is a crushed rock available in 300-700mm and 500mm-700mm sizes. It’s an effective choice for the protection of shorelines, structures and rivers offering long lasting wave dissipation and scour protection.
Often referred to as Armour stone or Rockarmour, it works by absorbing the impact of waves before they reach a structure or beach. The permeability of RipRap slows the waters flow, reducing the effect of erosion.
Rock armour is also suitable for offshore scour protection and maintenance work.
