Rock Armour - Rip Rap | CEMEX UK

Rock Armour works by absorbing and deflecting the impact of waves before they reach the beach or defended structure. The mass of the material absorbs the impact energy of storm waves, whilst the permeability (gaps between the rocks) slows the flow of water, reducing the erosion effect around structures or on the coastline.

Protection against Wave-based Erosion

Armor material: Sandstone and limestone can be used for armor stone. Allowances for the lighter mass density of sandstone (specific gravity of 2.2 to 2.5 for sandstone versus 2.6 for limestone) must be included in the design calculations. Sandstone is more resistant to cracking than limestone but it is also a softer material and more easily eroded.
