Bi-Flex Mattress

Pipeshield design and manufacture of a range of standard and bespoke concrete mattresses.

The Bi-Flex mattress is a flexible concrete cover, or foundation, it employs the inherent strength of concrete blocks linked together by an array of durable polypropelene rope. Three standard thicknesses of 150mm, 300mm and 450mm are offered, although bespoke sizes can be manufactured. By design our standards 300mm thick mattresses are significantly heavier than that of rival products, guaranteeing greater stability.

We also offer mattress covers which protect the mattress ropes from damaging UV rays which may compromise the ropes integrity, if left exposed over long periods of time.

N2 Bi-Flex Mattress Key Features and Benifits are:

  • Developed & patented by Pipeshield, the design has been flume tank tested and customer approved as providing enhanced stability to edge lift.
  • Used  where on-bottom velocities are onerous and edge lift stability is critical to the design.
  • N2 edge block is over three times more stable than the standard block offering cost effective solutions when specifying scope of works.
  • Can be incorporated during production either on the long or short edges or on all four edges.
