  • Assists permanent vegetation growth

Erosamat Type 3 turf reinforcement mat (TRM) is an erosion control geosynethetic made from a matrix of non-biodegradable polypropylene fibres. Erosamat Type 3 is suitable for all situations where an element of non-biodegradable erosion control is required (i.e water channels) in conjunction with natural vegetation. As a system the erosion control mat provides the root reinforcement necessary for natural vegetation to resist the extreme effects of wind, rain and water erosion.

When installed, Erosamat Type 3 turf reinforcing mat is filled with top soil and provides excellent surface protection. As the vegetation become established the roots become entwined within the structure of the Erosamat Type 3. This provides anchorage for the vegetation to resist high shear/stress situations. Work by CIRIA has shown that such mats can double permitted channel velocity.
