GREENARMOR SYSTEM OFFERS EROSION CONTROL

GREENARMOR SYSTEM OFFERS EROSION CONTROL
Profile Products introduces its new GreenArmor System, an effective green-engineering alternative to hard armour, such as rock rip-rap and concrete. By combining Enkamat Turf Reinforcement Mat (TRM) with Flexterra Flexible Growth Medium (FGM), Profile has created a unique, economical system that protects against elevated levels of hydraulic lift and shear forces on slopes and in channels while encouraging fast turf establishment and long-term root reinforcement.

The resilient three-dimensional matrix of Enkamat’s thermally fused nylon filaments creates an ideal anchor for root reinforcement. Because the lofty matrix consists of 95 percent open space, it readily accepts the hydraulically applied Flexterra infill. Flexterra provides immediate erosion control and requires no cure time. It’s designed with thermally refined wood fibres, crimped interlocking fibres and additives engineered to perform under extreme conditions. With over 99 percent erosion control effectiveness, Flexterra forms an intimate bond with the Enkamat matrix, seeds and soil. The GreenArmor system holds 15 times its weight in water and doubles the turf establishment rates seen in common TRMs. It is also less expensive, costing one-third to one-half of hard armor installations.
