Our rip rap materials are used for building design and erosion controls. The size of the rock needed for a project depends on the steepness of the slope and the velocity of the water running through the rock. Rip Rap is a great natural treatment but it’s not always easily traversable which is why we work with clients to determine the gradation for optimum coverage and the ability to maintain with the least amount of difficulty for workers.
Rip Rap range in size from 1″- 4″ , 2″- 4″ and 4″-10″ and are available in the following colors:
- Beatty Apache Brown (Northern Quarries)
- Beatty Apache Gold (Northern Quarries)
- Rebel Red (Northern Quarries)
- Palomino Coral (Northern Quarries)
- Silverbell Apache Gold (Southern Quarries)
- Superior Apache Brown (Southern Quarries)
- Kino Blue (Southern Quarries)
- Autumn Red (Southern Quarries)
Numerous property owners battle soil erosion difficulties, but various structures and solutions are available to reduce these problems. Rip rap is an efficient and cost-effective approach for combating soil erosion. This material is also known as shot rock or rock armor, and many of our customers use it to guard against scour bridge abutments, streambeds, coastal buildings, pilings, etc. Please contact us if you wish to stabilize stream banks on your property, construct retaining walls in the landscape, or install a barrier on road edges or steep drop-offs.
What Is Rip Rap?
Rock Slope Protection (RSP) is a frequently used technology and material for shore and bank protection. Rip rap is composed of one or many rock layers and is installed along stream/riverbanks and lake and ocean shorelines to avoid erosion. This prevalent technique is perfect for runoff locations where soil degradation is a problem. Riprap is a covering of huge, interlocking stones that serve as a barrier on steep hillsides with excessive water flow or seepage issues.
Various Rip Rap Applications
We carry the best rip rap clients use in construction and erosion prevention applications. As water travels through the rock, the velocity and force of the water dictate the size of the rip rap used. Also consider the slope of the area where you will install the rip rap. Our team works closely with customers to study the gradation of the site and determine which sizes would give the most outstanding coverage. Riprap is very beneficial in a variety of building applications, including:
- Sloped and channel sides
- Stream banks
- Culverts outlets and inlets
- Grade stabilization structures
- Drainage Structures
- Storm drains
