What are armour stones?
Armour stone is a natural quarried stone chosen for its durability and robustness against degradation and wear. The stones are quarried by drilling and blasting, then by selection and screening to achieve the specified grading. They look attractive and match natural surroundings.
Armour stone provides safety for both environment and people, with increasing storms and floods, rising sea levels, coastal protection is an increasing focus area at DC Aggregates.
Slope protection is constructed to avoid erosion of dunes and droughts and is built with stones that fit in size with the surrounding nature. Slope protection is a form of backstop that at the same time looks attractive and is natural in the landscape.
Breakwaters can be constructed in many ways, but a commonly used Construction is rubble mound breakwaters. A rubble mound break consists of three layers where the outer layer is built of armour stone. The construction helps break the storm waves so the energy is broken and reflection spreads.
