DMC has developed a new armour block which is called the XblocPlus. This block is based on the experiences during 15 years of Xbloc projects around the world. XblocPlus is a single layer concrete armour unit which is placed in a regular pattern: all the blocks on the slope have the same orientation, similar to roof tiles. This simplifies the placement process and it simplifies the approval process.
