Cable Concrete is the premier precast articulating concrete block mat system. It consists of pyramidal-shaped concrete blocks, in various sizes and weights, interwoven with stainless steel cable, and under laid with a durable geotextile fabric. Bethlehem Precast was one of the first suppliers of cable concrete and has grown to become one of the largest suppliers. Cable concrete provides the owner with a cost-effective solution that allows water permeability, vegetation, contour flexibility, subsoil confinement and long-term control of erosion. It can be moved or reusable for temporary erosion control.
Cable concrete can be used in swales, overtopping, dam repair, temporary roadways, outlets and inlets. Since the cables are cast into the system, blocks can be removed for larger planting without compromising the integrity of the system. Because it allows for drainage, cable concrete also is being used in boat ramps and in parking lots. Further, it is used by the military for a variety of applications.
