ArmorMat is used on steep soil slopes vulnerable to erosion; once installed it immediately increases the
soil’s resistance to erosive runoff displacement by providing conditions that enhances the growth of
underlying vegetation through the medium, which may be existing foliage or quality topsoil that is
blinded into the ArmorMat matrix following installation.
ArmorMat is a three-dimensional matrix of UV stabilised, non-degradable synthetic fibres,
heat bonded where they cross then extruded onto a double twisted steel woven mesh.
When used within water the course, ArmorMat provides hydraulic erosion
protection once it is secured with suitable soil nails or ground anchors as
specified by the client.
ArmorMat is used extensively in projects involving:
Surface strengthening and support
Reservoirs, lakes and ponds
Weirs & culverts
Channels & culverts
Capping lining systems
River & coastal projects
