Rock bag / Net bag for bag-type foot protection

Powerful Unit

  • Confirmation examination for harbor-related commercial technology, and assessment business evaluation technology No. 18002
New Technology Information System (NETIS) Registration Number:CBK-120003-VR

Outline

Bag material for sea and lakes where the effects of waves are a concern

Powerful Unit/ROCK BAG (NET GABION) is a bag material made by polyester fiber. Its net strength and excellent durability prevents wear and breakage of the net caused by the boulders and driftwood. It can be used as a revetment and a bridge pier foot protection work and an emergency flood control material.

Characteristics

  • All of the raw materials utilized are polyester fibers, so there will be no degradation due to rusting.
  • Because super-thick raschel netting is utilized, the bag material is resistant to rupture.
  • During installation, since the mouth closing part (knot part) does not protrude, the bag has a shape that avoids becoming caught up by driftwood.
  • Because the flexibility required for revetment foundation consolidation work is maintained, the bag shape is able to fit onto the landscape changes occurring in the bottom.In addition, the ability to fit into gaps is also maintained, which is necessary for filling work
  • For the filling materials, locally generated materials (such as boulders, broken stones and rag stones) and concrete chunks can be used.
  • The netting mesh size is 50-75mm, which allows marine organisms to easily pass in and out.

※ The completed shape dimensions described above are reference values in the case where the filling materials used are broken stones between 150 to 250mm in size. Because the stone size, specific gravity, and grain size will differ according to the site, the diameter and height will also change.

Additionally, in the case where the bags are placed in layers, because it can be expected that the heights in the table will become lower due to the weight and the method of placing the bags in layers, adjustments will be required at each site.
