Case Study Overview

Project: Office Depot
Location: Panama City, Panama
Project Type: Slope Stabilization
Application: Channel Bank Stabilization
ProductS Used: ARMORMAX®

Problem

Office Depot in Panama City, Panama needed to armor a slope behind its building against continual erosion. Runoff from the property would flow down the slope causing the erosion, which jeopardized Office Depot's fence and delivery driveway at the top. Accessibility for installation was a factor in finding the right product, as most traditional methods would have been too costly and difficult to install.

Solution

Office Depot chose ARMORMAX® 75 Engineered Earth Armoring Solution™ because it offered maximum protection of the slope, a cost effective budget, and an environmentally friendly solution. ARMORMAX® also installs much faster than traditional solutions, which was critical to this project since it was installed during the rainy season.
