Canal wall rock armouring services
Gold Coast Barges specialise in rock armouring canal walls or revetment walls throughout the Gold Coast, Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast. Revetment rock helps support your waterfront revetment wall and provides excellent protection from tide, wake, and current damage. It also adds to the value of your home and improves the look of your water frontage.
Our team can visit your waterfront property to inspect the revetment wall and discuss the best approach to rectify and correct any damage.

Rock armouring wall solutions
Rock armouring involves a rock top up to ensure your wall does not move. This can be carried out to walls with preexisting rock to ensure the rock is brought back to the original design profile and is doing what the engineer initially designed it to do.
Our team place the rock against your wall using a bobcat or excavator, then pack it tightly and neatly with a special excavator bucket. Finally, we finish the top edge by hand, giving you the neatest possible finish. We carry the largest load on the coast which this means we offer by far the best price per tonne. Most water frontages require 25-50 tonnes to top up their rock. Several sizes of rock are available and we can provide a structural engineer if you require for specific repair or preventative solutions.
