COST-EFFECTIVE SUSTAINABLE JEEP TRACK FOR ACCESS ROADS AND TRAILS

Technicrete’s interlocking Armorflex Blocks are ideally suited to Jeep Track (Strip Road) application, providing access to areas currently either without established roadways or with crumbling insitu cast concrete strips.

 

Sites requiring vehicle traversal such as rural development and construction areas, agricultural and farm roads, tourism establishments, areas of bush, tree or high grass growth, gravel roads, earth tracks and in particular, locations where roads and embankments are subject to stormwater erosion, would benefit greatly from the installation of Armorflex.

 

Technicrete’s Armorflex all-weather, non-slip Jeep Track solution is cost effective for property owners and developers who require vehicle access where roads may or have already become eroded by weather. The specialised design of the blocks, with earth filled gaps and varying height concrete areas, ensures greater traction for vehicles, particularly in mountainous environs and/or wet conditions. The ability to wire tie the blocks together into long mats and anchor these into the natural soil further assists in stabilisation of the blocks and road surface.

 

Placement in Jeep Track orientation is cost effective due to a material saving by only paving 2 strips of approx 600mm wide (each) as opposed to paving the entire road width.

 

Traditionally, gravel roads or earth tracks require costly regular maintenance, such as grading. Insitu concrete surfaces start cracking up very soon after installation and degrade very quickly with large chunks of concrete spalling and breaking off. These type installations generally require regular repeated applications that become too costly to maintain.

 

Technicrete’s Jeep Track allows for vegetation growth through the blocks (if required) and easy maintenance of this. A correctly designed and installed Armorflex Jeep Track project will offer a closure solution with minimal maintenance requirements that will not crack, break, shift or become unusable for vehicular access. Armorflex Jeep Track roads can be designed to accommodate low to high intensity traffic and a variety of loading from cars to heavy trucks.
