What is an Armor Stone or Rock Revetment?

An Armor Stone Revetment or Rock Revetment works by taking the impact of the wave energy and absorbing it, thereby protecting your shoreline and minimizing the effects of coastal erosion. Here at Demex, we use locally sourced armor limestone rock from Sandusky, Ohio. 

Our revetments can be installed either by barge or by land, depending on your property. Our fleet of barges can be seen setting these revetments up and down the shores of Lake Erie. With lake levels on the rise for the last few years, revetments are a great way to ensure that our natural beaches will form again and be enjoyed for generations to come.
