High Performance Turf Reinforcement Mats:
Erosion Control for Slopes and Vegetated Waterways
Terraqua ES supply a range of standard and high performance turf reinforcement mats, designed to facilitate almost any storm water, drainage or erosion protection schemes. These high performance mats provide a permanent solution by promoting vegetation, anchoring soil on steep slopes, river banks, high-flow channels, and shorelines. HPTRMs are more economical than costly traditional methods such as as rock riprap, concrete paving, gabion & concrete mattresses and fabric formed revetments.
The system consists of a lightweight HPTRM layer, Pyramat, and earth percussion anchors that work together to lock soil in place to resist movement, providing permanent erosion protection for vegetated applications. The system can be used in non-structural and structural engineering solutions providing a higher factor of safety, superior erosion protection and long term design life.
PYRAMAT High Performance Turf Reinforcement Mats (HPTRM)
Pyramat is a high strength, lightweight HPTRM designed to handle the most demanding erosion control applications. Patented Pyramat three – dimensional construction makes HPTRMs ten times stronger than traditional TRMs. The 3D matrix of polypropylene yarns features X3 technology which locks in seed and soil for permanent reinforced vegetation. Used where high loadings and a 50 year design life, is required.
LANDLOK 300 Turf Reinforcement Mat (TRM)
Landlok 300 TRM is the perfect erosion control mat for high-flow storm water channels, river banks and steep slopes where both immediate and long term erosion control is needed. Using X3 fibre technology Landlok 300 TRM traps more seed, soil and water in place than traditional hard armour products, yielding faster and fuller vegetation. Landlok 300 is the only 2nd generation TRM that has woven technology, developed for use when a longer design life is required over standard stitch bonded TRMs.
LANDLOK TRM 450 Turf Reinforcement Mat (TRM)
TRM 450 is a 1st generation turf reinforcement mat constructed of a dense web of polypropylene fibres positioned between two biaxial oriented nets. Manufactured from 100% synthetic materials, UV stabilised and using X3 fibres TRM 450 is uniquely designed for moderate-flow channels and medium slopes.
