The permanent matting structure of our TRM’s reinforces the root and stem systems of vegetation against damage and extraction under high shear stress water flow, while the matrix filler material provides immediate to long term erosion control and mulching for enhanced vegetation establishment.
High flow channels • erosion control • pond shore lines • steep slopes alternate to Rip Rap & Concrete
Vmax3 SC250 is constructed of a permanent, high-strength, three-dimensional matting structure that incorporates a straw/coconut fiber matrix. The straw/coconut fiber matrix enhances the permanent matting component’s initial mulching and erosion control performance for up to 24 months.
Turf reinforcement mats SC250 provides extended-term, pre-vegetated erosion protection and permanent turf reinforcement in a wide range of applications, including severe slopes, medium- to high-flow channels, and stream banks. It is proven in extensive laboratory and field research to increase the shear resistance of vegetation up to 10 lbs/ft2 (480 Pa).
With the toughest unreinforced grasses typically failing at shear stress levels of 3.7 lbs/ft2, the high-performance SC250 more than doubles the shear resistance of vegetation. This enables SC250 to be used in applications where rock riprap and concrete were once specified.
Vmax3 C350 is composed of a permanent, high-strength, three-dimensional matting structure, incorporated with a 100% coconut-fiber matrix that supplements the permanent matting structure’s initial mulching and erosion control capabilities for up to 36 months.
C350 is designed to provide long-term, pre-vegetated erosion protection and permanent turf reinforcement in a range of applications that include steep slopes, high-flow channels, and shorelines.
Proven in extensive laboratory and field research, C350’s high-strength, 3-D matting structure boosts the shear resistance of vegetation up to an amazing 12 lbs/ft2 (576 Pa).
With permanent erosion protection exceeding that of 30” (0.76 m) rock riprap, C350 provides a cost-effective, environmentally friendly, “green” solution to erosion control projects for severe conditions.
North American Green’s P550
North American Green’s P550 is made of a permanent, ultra-high-strength, three-dimensional matting structure incorporated with a permanent 100% polypropylene fiber matrix. The 100% polypropylene fiber matrix enhances the permanent matting structure’s initial mulching and erosion control properties, as well as its permanent vegetation reinforcement capabilities.
P550 is designed to provide long-term, pre-vegetated erosion protection and permanent turf reinforcement in an extensive range of severe applications that include steep slopes; extreme, high-flow channels; and shorelines. P550 is proven to drive the shear resistance of vegetation to over 14 lbs/ft2 (672 Pa)—a new maximum for vegetation reinforcement
