Riprap Stone Uses
Riprap stone may be sold by the cubic yard or by the ton, depending on where it was loaded. Riprap, commonly referred to as rock armor, shot rock or rubble, and is rock or other material used to armor shorelines against water erosion. And it is a very durable, natural looking treatment for any area where you use it.
Riprap stone is comprised of many rock variations including limestone or granite. It is sometimes applied to any water facility or containment center where water erosion is common. Many ponds, lakes and other small water bodies have a high potential for overflowing. Riprap stone helps prevent erosion of shorelines by keeping water away from weaker land. Riprap stone has also been used to protect submerged tunnels from accidental anchor strikes or the possible sinking of debris.
One potential drawback of using riprap stone is making an area inaccessible to animals. However, there are ways to lay out the material to ease that issue.
When using riprap stone, one needs to take into consideration the steepness of the slope and the speed of the water. Erosion can compromise bridges, wash out adjacent roadways, or cause a loss of property. So, getting this right is critical and can keep the public safe. Laying it down seems simple, but it requires a lot of professional evaluation. And once a plan is greenlit, having the right amount of riprap material is important. At Atlas Roll-Off, we can provide you with a delivery of riprap stone to help with your project. And make it as affordable as possible.
Advancements in Riprap
Partially grouted riprap incorporates a cement-adhesive mixture, which is essentially gluing the rocks together. This new strategy uses smaller-sized rocks, layered and glued on site, which then results in a riprap solution that's roughly one-half to two-thirds the thickness of a standard loose stone installation. This new advancement in riprap saves money for the client, while also proving effect as the partial grouting that allows for higher hydraulic stability without sacrificing all permeability.
Improving Water Quality
Riprap gravel aggregate has the advantage of improving water quality, since it naturally prevents the buildup of sediment. This helps the water near the shorelines to remain clean and clear. The riprap also creates habitats for animals living in the surrounding areas. When the high tide comes in, the riprap becomes covered with water creating a nice spot for small creatures to escape and seek shelter.
