Our team at Arkansas Aggregates has been in continuous operation since 2005, and each year, we mine and ship over two million tons of rock products throughout the southeast by truck, rail, and barge. Our rock products are mined at our Little Rock quarry from a major outcropping of Nepheline Syenite, a rock product that is similar to granite, and is the predominant rock product in the region. No order is too big or too small, and we’re always a phone call away when you need to place an order for gravel, railroad ballast, fill rock, rip rap, or armor stone.
Rip rap is one of our bestselling products, and it has a lot of uses. Rip rap gradation refers to stones that are 10”-18” in diameter. If you have any questions about rip rap, such as how much to order, or how quickly that we can ship it to you, give us a call at any time, and we’ll be happy to help. Here are some of the most common uses of rip rap:
Shoreline Stabilization-If a home or business is located next to a lake or river, rip rap is an important component of keeping the shoreline intact. Without it, rapid currents and flash flooding can literally wash the property away.
Protection from Erosion-Many homes and shopping centers are located at the bottom of large hills, and can get easily covered with mud during heavy seasonal rainfall. This is particularly true if the property was clear-cut and excavated to level the lot, but any hillside without sufficient vegetation can be vulnerable.
Drainage-If a property is located next to a large drainage ditch, it too can suffer from erosion over time. A layer of rip rap is absolutely essential to prevent the ditch from encroaching on the property.
