Incomat® Crib

Plantable concrete mattress for erosion control

Ideal for bank protection above permanent water line or for standing waterbodies

Incomat Crib comprises a grid of tubular members that are filled with concrete. The intermediate rectangular recesses are left un-filled and, after concreting, act as large-area filter-points. Alternatively, these areas can be filled with soil and subsequently vegetated.

The tubular-grid mattress is mainly used for bank protection. It is installed by lakes and watercourses in the intermediate zone between the high and low water marks or above the permanent water level. It can also be used to stabilize dam areas that are subject to overflow and to line spillways. After planting, Incomat Crib provides a visually appealing and ecological means of erosion control.

Simple installation process

1. Preparation of formation

2. Spreading out of panels

3. Filling of panels with fluid concrete/mortar
