Permanently prevent erosion and encourage vegetative growth with Flexamat, a concrete block erosion control mat.
Because vegetation is allowed to grow over Flexamat, it can be hidden, and once grass grows, Flexamat can actually be mowed. This high-strength geogrid consists of a matrix of 5000 psi concrete blocks measuring 6.5” x 6.5” x 2.25” and spaced 1.5” apart. These blocks are attached to a bi-axial geogrid, which comes in a roll, making any handling and installation easy. When the mat is unrolled, it can be permanently anchored to withstand velocities of 30+ feet per second and shear stresses of 24+ pounds per square feet.
Flexamat can be installed to protect pipe and culvert inlets/outlets, channel side slopes, and more. It can be used in designs of riverbanks, letdown channels, culvert outlets, and curb inlets. Because it’s easier to maintain than rock protection applications, shoreline protection, roadside channels, and detention basins can now be aesthetically pleasing. Depending on soil types and seeding applications, Flexamat can be fitted with various backings, such as Curlex II (wood excelsior) or Curlex II with Recyclex TRM-V to ensure any project’s success.
