Erosion control

Protecting slopes from soil erosion

Erosion prevention mats allow fast vegetation growth and provide a foothold for vegetation root systems.

The three-dimensional Enkamat erosion prevention mats provide immediate and permanent protection, reducing the need for maintenance.

Enkamat is secured in trenches at the slope’s toe and shoulder, and pinned at regular intervals to maintain contact with the underlying soil.

  • The natural defence against either water or wind erosion is the root matrix of grasses, plants and trees. 
  • Our range of Enkamat erosion control products protect the slope immediately after construction by creating an artificial root matrix.
