Solution/ Design & Construction

The best solution was to construct the revetment with ACEFormer™ Vegetation Type geotextile mattresses. This easy and quick method could shorten the construction time after the water in lake was drained out. The ACEFormer™ act as a strong cover layer on eroded area, and counteracts the attack from water to prevent the landslide. The special design of ACEFormer™ Vegetation Type would also crop landscaping plants to avoid the wanton growth of weeds.


At present, the project is successfully finished; ACEFormer™ geotextile mattresses perform as the thriving revetment which is placed on the erosionslopes and continues to protect the area.
