Turf Reinforcement Mats (TRMs) are long-term, non-degradable, three-dimensional mats that are designed to reinforce stems and roots of vegetation, preventing erosion by capturing and holding the soil in place. Coleman Moore Company carries LandLok® and Pyramat® TRMs by Propex , Recylex TRMs by American Excelsior and Huesker Fortrac 3D.
Propex Turf Reinforcement Mats
Propex’s Turf Reinforcement Mats, including their Landlok® and Pyramat® lines, are designed using the patented X3® Fiber Technology in order to lock in the root system to protect it from powerful hydraulic forces while capturing water to better hydrate the vegetation and promote grass growth. This will help reinforce the soil even more with a thicker, stronger root system. The fibers are highly UV-resistant for added durability against the elements. Propex’s TRMs are known in the industry for effective performance over time and have established themselves as the TRM of choice.

American Excelsior Company Turf Reinforcement Mats
American Excelsior Company’s Recyclex® is made of 100% post-consumer recycled materials, including brown and green bottles. This environmentally-friendly erosion control product is designed for long-term, permanent erosion control applications. One unique feature of the Recyclex® TRM is that it does not float, unlike other TRMs in the market. When a turf reinforcement mat floats, it allows water to reach the soil. Instead, Recyclex® was designed to be flexible with the topsoil surface and form to its composition. It will remain in position, even against strong hydraulic flows, in order to protect the soil below. It is comprised of a strong, curled, interlocking fiber matrix for long-lasting durability and flexibility.

Huesker Turf Reinforcement Mats
Huesker’s Fortrac 3D is used to stabilize soil on slopes. It is a flexible, three-dimensional reinforcement mat made from high-tensile, low-creep polyester with integral soil erosion prevention. By virtue of its spatial structure, Fortrac 3D exhibits outstanding interaction properties with soils (bond coefficient 1.0) as well as excellent soil retention when exposed to rainwater.
Given the in-depth understanding of its long-term behavior, Fortrac 3D can be designed to meet any project-specific service life requirements.
Gripple Earth Anchors
Gripple Earth Anchors are used when standard erosion control staples just won’t do the job.
Common TRM Applications
The Turn Reinforcement Mats we offer at Coleman Moore are designed specifically for critical erosion applications. These include:
Areas of concentrated water flow
Pond, lake, and stream bank shorelines
