Use & Purposes
ACEFormer is constructed with two layers of high strength woven geotextiles. ACEFormer is suitable for diverse applications. The woven fabric can be either PP or PET material. It is comprised of mortar or concrete filled elements and fabricated into a variety of product types, such as:
Filter Point Type
FP Type is a double layer woven fabric and with many small permeable areas from 25 to 65 cm2 to form single layer fabric called “Filter Point”. The Filter Point can release the water pressure beneath ACEFormer to increase the stability of the structure. Filled ACEFormer with an undulating surface can reduce energy of wave or river flow to lower the flow velocity and wave run-up.
V Type resembles FP Type ACEFormer. Its well-distributed filter area formed single permeable fabric with 900 cm2 areas which is larger than FP Type; these also can be removed for planting or vegetating purpose. Once the planting complete, the root of plant can firmly interact with the soil to stabilize slope and the plant or vegetation and increase the coefficient of hydraulic friction.
L Type ACEFormer is designed to create the discontinuous and foursquare block with about 2,500cm2 areas of L shape filter fabric. Adjacent blocks are merely joined by multitudinous narrow joints. The aim of the innovative product is to reduce the comprehensive failure of unpredictable and serious disaster.
T Type ACEFormer can be constructed with heavier mass. This product is most suitable for the more difficult hydraulic applications. The properties, application fields and advantages are equivalent to L Type ACEFormer.
The Pipe Type ACEFormer is a the variation of FP type which is formed from numerous cylindrical filters. The larger filters dissipate the water pressure caused by wave action.
Uniform Section Type
The Uniform Section Type ACEFormer provides a continuous protective layer with uniform thickness in the range of 20 to 50 cm.
