Flood alleviation and mitigation can provide protection to new developments or address existing flooding issues within local communities. There has been a shift away from hard landscaping options in flood alleviation towards more natural sustainable options. Greenfix materials work in harmony with the landscape to provide green, vegetated alternatives to the traditional concrete or other hard solutions.
Slope and Channel Protection
Greenfix offers the Geoweb® cellular confinement system, which provides a vegetated alternative to rip-rap or gabions. The system is becoming increasingly popular in flood alleviation schemes as a softer option.
Greenfix supplies a range of plastic paving grids that can be used as a trafficked surface in a SUDS installation, allowing stormwater to run off into infiltration or attenuation below the road surface. Greenfix can provide materials suitable for all traffic types from pedestrians to HGVs.
Greenfix’s range of biodegradable meshes and blankets cover all types of embankment and are suitable for a range of water velocities up to 6.5m/sec. For higher water flows, permanent reinforcement mats secured by ground anchors are available.
