Enkamat A20

3-dimensional mat filled with stone chippings

overview

Provides immediate erosion protection from high water velocities and small wave attack.

Permanent erosion solution

Permanent erosion solution

For areas exposed to water, a 3D polyamide mat with open structure, prefilled with a bitumen-bound mineral filter of stone chippings. Laid on grass-seeded soil slopes exposed to water provides a permanent solution to erosion caused by hydraulic stress.

FUNcTIONS
  • Erosion protection of water banks.

  • Allows area to become fully vegetated with the appearance of a grass channel.

High performance

  • Reinforces vegetation root systems.
  • Resists high water velocities.
  • Ensures no hydrostatic pressure build-up behind the protected slopes.
  • Enables root systems to grow and green shoots to sprout through the mat.
  • Ensures a natural aesthetic appearance.
High performance
Efficient long-term solution

Efficient long-term solution

  • Faster to install than traditional protection systems.
  • A permanent solution.
  • Flexible, follows the profile of the ground surface.
  • No maintenance necessary.
  • Firmly locked to the ground by the root system.
Applications enabled by this product

Green Erosion Protection

Erosion is when water or wind displace soil, such as splash erosion, sheet, rill, gully and stream erosion. Our biodegradable materials provide temporary protection until natural vegetation can take over.

Water Edge Protection

Geomembranes used to protect retention ponds or lined impounding reservoirs need to be protected against UV and mechanical damage, usually by a layer of soil. Our products protect this soil from erosion and sliding, and encourages vegetation.

Technical details
  • Water permeability is 30mm/s at 100mm head.
  • It is filled with a bitumen-bound mineral filter of stone chippings of 2-6mm. It is 22mm thick, and weighs 20kg/m2.
  • Enkamat A20 is a strong, three-dimensional mat made from high-quality polyamide (PA), with an open structure consisting of looped filaments welded where they cross.
