Slope Protection

Slopes and Sinkholes can be better protected from failures due to rain and water erosion using Symmloc, because large areas can be covered faster, more effectively and hold up in windy conditions where sandbag and tires fail. Add too this the ability to build seams to keep even more water out.

Symmloc provides superior performance with 1 to 2% of the weight required by sandbags, saving labor and fuel cost and preventing damage caused by erosion due to cover failures.

New Raw Video of superior wind performance for slope protection, using Symmloc Fasteners while using far fewer units when compared to sandbags and providing better sandbag alternative.

"The area we covered without Symmloc will need maintenance, while the area using Symmloc is holding up well and they are literally side by side." -Tony Franco, Superintendent Howard S Wright

Uses far fewer units compared to sandbags with better performance. They last longer, are reusable, easy to transport and store.

Large cover slope protection without heavy sandbags and less labor.

The slopes below were covered using plastic and the Symmloc Fastener, as you can see in the pictures, this slope has been covered using fewer Symmloc Fasteners than would be required if sandbags were used, and provides a cover that can withstand wind forces better than sandbags. The Pictures below were taken after a storm that had sustained winds of 23 mph and gust of 28 mph.

Update. The Cover below made it through October 15, 2010 until April 15, 2011 without and significant damage using 6 mil plastic despite many windy days.
