Scourlok

SCOURLOK™ Shoreline Defense System 

SCOURLOK™ is a robust Shoreline Defense System designed to resist extreme hydraulic stresses and protect shorelines while promoting vegetation. It was developed for applications that need below water scour protection in addition to slope stabilization and erosion control provided by ARMORMAX® and PYRAMAT® Engineered Earth Armoring Solutions.

Features & Benefits

Environmental

  • Enhances water quality by increasing pollutant and nutrient removal
  • Yields a vegetated solution that is more aesthetically pleasing than traditional hard armoring solutions
  • Vegetating pockets can be filled with a mulch/soil mixture or other media to sustain plant growth

Design and Performance

  • Resists extreme hydraulic stresses, protecting vegetated and un-vegetated shoreline applications
  • Can be installed below or above water to fully armor the entire shoreline
  • Units can easily be connected and contoured to accommodate projects of any size
  • Combines the superior erosion control protection of PYRAMAT with the exceptional hydraulic and soil retention properties of GEOTEX
  • Can be combined with other Propex Engineered Earth Solutions such as ARMORMAX to optimize design
  • SCOURLOK cells are manufactured by HESCO® with similar technology as its flood control units. Click here to learn more about HESCO

Cost Savings

  • Units can be filled with in-situ soils, eliminating the cost of importing fill material to a jobsite
  • Compact design makes shipping costs more effective than traditional hard armoring solutions
  • Units ship pre-assembled for fast and easy installation, reducing overall installation costs
  • Units are deployed faster than conventional methods and can be filled using machinery

Applications

  • Stream banks
  • Canals
