This durable and flexible system provides a lightweight protection layer securely anchored to the subgrade for long-term design life. It withstands extreme hydraulic stress and resists non-hydraulic event damage, like debris flows and maintenance operations.
It outperforms and is more cost-effective than conventional methods, including rock riprap, rock slope protection, gabions, concrete blocks or paving, and fabric formed revetments.
Woven three -dimensional HPTRM protection layer featuring X3® fiber technology
- Unique X3 fiber shape provides over 40% more surface area than conventional fibers to capture the moisture, soil and water required for rapid vegetation growth
- Exhibits extremely high tensile strength as well as superior interlock and reinforcement capacity with both soil and root systems
- Maximum ultraviolet protection for long-term design life
- Netless, rugged material construction stands up to the toughest erosion applications where high loading and/or high survivability conditions are required
Earth Percussion Anchors Secure the Mat to the Ground
- Made of corrosion resistant aluminum alloy, gravity die cast and heat treated to give considerable increase in mechanical strength and curability both during installation and in service
- Connected to a threaded rod or stainless tendon to fully enhance corrosion resistance particularly at the soil/air interface
- As the load exerted on the soil by the ArmorMax® system increases, a body of soil above the anchor is compressed and provides resistance to any further anchor movement — permanently securing the mat to the ground
- Supports the EPA’s Green Infrastructure initiative and is a recognizedstorm water Best Management Practice (BMP) and is proven to reduceerosion and reinforce vegetation for low-impact, sustainable design
- Easy to handle, lightweight components for rapid installation
- Use of lightweight equipment and unskilled labor facilitatesinstallation with limited site access
- Aesthetically pleasing and more cost effective than conventional methods such as rock riprap and concrete paving
