Subsea protection:
Concrete Mattresses
Concrete mattresses provide a recognised
cost-effective engineering solution to
subsea assets. They have been used for over two
decades in protecting subsea pipeline
against impact, dropped objects and scour.
Installation of mattresses is a straightforward and
safe procedure with the appropriate equipment,
using either divers or ROVs.

SPS is one of the worlds leading manufacturers of
concrete mattresses. We manufacture a
range of mattresses, in the UK and around the
world, for all of the major subsea construction companies. We carry a large number of

the contours of a pipeline / umbilical and

concrete profiled blocks and U.V. Stabilised
polypropylene rope. The SPS f
pattern reduces the open line effect thus
offering additional protection and stability.
Once installed the flexi-mat may scour into the

Higher/lower Density Mattresses
The density of concrete used in the manufacture of standard mattresses is generally
between 2.3 and 2.5 tonnes per cubic metre. Under certain conditions where there may be
a requirement for additional or less weight in a mattress (or other SPS product). SPS can
design and supply a concrete mix with a higher or lower density than the standard.


Protection Pads
Under certain operating conditions
when a low-friction or anti-abrasion
material between the concrete
mattress and the asset that it may
be stabilising or protecting. SPS can
provide this by affixing a range of
materials to its Mattress Segments.


Fronded Concrete Mattresses
Fronded concrete mattresses are used to prevent seabed scour. Natural seaweed reduces
water velocity locally and correspondingly reduces scour; the frond mattress replicates this
natural phenomenon. Over 1000 buoyant fronds per square metre at nominally one metre
high are built into the mattress and properly deployed they will stop scour rapidly by
forming a sand berm from particulate matter in the sea
