Submat Flexiform is a low cost flexible concrete mattress developed as an addition to Submat’s proven range of Submat bitumen mattresses which have been successfully utilised for stabilisation/protection of marine pipelines/cables for over three decades.

Submat flexiform has itself established an impressive track record with various projects successfully completed on time, full details of which are available upon request.

Flexiform consists of high strength concrete segments linked together with a network of high strength polypropylene ropes to form a continuous flexible concrete barrier.

Flexiform by virtue of individually profiled concrete segments is able to provide a high degree of flexibility in two planes and as such allows for complete stabilisation/protection in most applications i.e. straightforward pipeline cover, at pipeline bends intersections on trenched/untrenched pipelines, for counter-action to seabed scouring or where there are pronounced undulations in the seabed profile.

Flexiform can be installed with a simple quick release installation beam/frame which can be provided as an integral part of the order.

Submat Flexiform is designed to provide a high quality, low cost solution for stabilisation/protection of subsea pipelines/structures and conforms to the requirements of BS8110 ‘The Structural Use of Concrete’.
