Slope and rockfall protection

Stabilising potentially dangerous slopes

Our erosion control products protect and stabilise slopes from wind and water erosion and prevent falls of debris, rocks and boulders.

On weathered rock surfaces, fine grained soils and small stones are washed out by wind and rain, undermining the establishment of vegetation. Using a pinned Enkamat facing or a filled Armater mat can allow vegetation to mature.

Rocky surfaces may need bolting, anchoring and wire netting to ensure larger stones are not dislodged. Enkamat pinned behind the face netting will retain smaller stones and particles and provide a growth medium for vegetation to establish itself through hydroseeding or hand-planting.

OUR SOLUTION
Surface erosion prevention

Surface erosion prevention

  • Enkamat erosion control mat protects the slope immediately after construction.
  • It creates an artificial root matrix on the slope by embedding the soil.
  • Ideal for hand-seeding, planting or hydroseeding.

Slope protection

  • Reinforced Enkamat W or R is pinned to ensure contact with the ground.
  • It functions as a flexible grip layer which retains soil.
