Erosion Control | Winstone Aggregates

By: Winstone Aggregates  06-Dec-2011

Protects coastlines and structures from water erosion with
large grade rock.

Products: Rip Rap, Gabion, Spalls (Boulders)

Rip Rap

Rip Rap is available in a range of sizes, dependent on specification.

Rip Rap absorbs and deflects the impact of waves before they reach the structure they protect. Gaps between the large grade rocks trap and slow the flow of water, reducing its erosion ability. The mass of Rip Rap also provides protection against damage caused by the impact of debris, making it particularly useful as a support for bridge supports and pilings.


Gabion is produced to a specified size of 100mm-200mm.

Gabion stabilises coastlines or slopes against erosion and can also be used as runoff silt filters, temporary floodwalls and for channel linings. Gabions are also suitable as fish barriers on small streams.


Spalls are available in a range of sizes up to >800mm.

Products | Winstone Aggregates

Data retrieved from 50 years of geological information and site research means that Winstone Aggregates can forecast and schedule supply in excess of 30 years. We are able to test and monitor product so that any significant variances are addressed within 24 hours. Current figures show that the demand for aggregate equates to eight tonnes for every person annually. We are constantly challenged to minimise variances in product.


Cement Treated Basecourse | Winstone Aggregates

Laboratory testing using repeated load triaxial testing equipment has found that low dosages of cement added to basecourse significantly improves the moisture resistance and stiffness resulting in greater resistance to deformation when wet. Plant stabilising improves the accuracy of the production process allowing for a greater controlled and consistent finished product.
