Terrafix is an interlocking environmentally acceptable element made of high strength concrete. It was specifically designed to provide a flexible lining where cost-effective protection against wind and water erosion is required. Terrafix blocks are available in three different thicknesses and can be laid in a variety of configurations to suit most site conditions

  2. 2. Your living concrete wall Flexible and permeable erosion control block: TERRAFIX is an interlocking environmentally acceptable element made of high strength concrete. It is designed to provide a flexible lining where cost-effective protection against wind/water erosion is required. Available in 3 different thicknesses. Can be laid in a variety of configurations to suit site conditions. 2 Terrafix erosion-control block: ...
  3. 3. Your living concrete wall The elements are made out of durable concrete and can therefore safely be used in most saline or polluted conditions. Units interlock laterally and offer a secure yet flexible lining. They are highly permeable, but can be made impermeable by either placing an impervious membrane underneath the blocks or by grouting the structure with concrete or mastic. This makes it the ideal product to help combat the rapid degradation of our rivers and streams, caused by unbridled urbanisation and poor farming practices all over South Africa and the world. Terrafix can help prevent our soil being eroded away, while still being permeable enough to help preserve our precious ground water reserves and biodiversity. 3 Terrafix erosion-control block: ...
