Efective wave protection for breakwater and shores

Why Xbloc?

Xbloc is the most economical single layer armour unit. The average concrete saving yielded by incorporation of Xbloc units is up to 15 % compared to other single layer armour units. More savings are achieved on construction costs and project duration as the Xbloc requires a smaller number of armour units. The total lifetime costs will be low as each Xbloc design is based on a maintenance free concept.

Low concrete use

Xbloc is the most economical single layer armour unit. The average concrete saving yielded by incorporation of Xbloc units is up to 15 % compared to other single layer armour units. The difference is due to the high stability coefficient of the Xbloc units and the low-packing density required, both of which results in a lower concrete demand.

Efficient use of storage area

The area needed for storage of units is minimized as the units can be stored in a half-brick bond and stacked in multiple layers

Low construction costs

More savings are achieved on construction costs and project duration as the Xbloc requires a smaller number of armour units. The Xbloc is easy to produce, easy to store and easy to place. Due to the simple placement principle high placement rates can be achieved, reducing construction time and therefore overall costs.

No maintenance costs

The total lifetime costs will be low as each Xbloc design is based on a maintenance free concept.
