Enkamat®R45

High Performance Turf Reinforcement Mat

    overview

    For reinforcing challenging environments - steep slopes, shorelines, channels,and grip layer under vegetated veneers.

    Dependable in tough situations

    Dependable in tough situations

    The Enkamat R45 offers the combination of a high-strength tensile member for reinforcement at low strains and the TRM for root entanglement.

    FUNCTIONS
    • Reinforcement.

    • Stabilisation.

    • Grip layer.

    • Redistributes shear forces within soil.

    • Limits differential settlements during consolidation.

    • Improves internal stability of soil block.

    • High stiffness and low creep properties maximise soil performance.

    • Interacts perfectly with all granular soil types.

    Performance

    • Permanent erosion control for vegetated channels with high expected shear stress.
    • Permanent erosion protection adds surficial stability for steep slopes.
    • Substrate for hydraulically applied Flexible Growth Medium (FGM) or Bonded FIber Matrix (BFM).
    • The type of material used prevents buoyancy- The No Float TRM.
    • Supports and enhances performance of ecosystem plants.

    APPLICATIONS ENABLED BY THIS PRODUCT

    Erosion Control

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

    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.

    Embankments On Weak Soils And Areas Prone To Subsidence

    Accelerated consolidation of soft soils by using prefabricated vertical drains (PVD), and using Geosynthetic Encased Columns to ensure the columns transfer loads vertically.

    Dykes

    Erosion is a risk when dykes are under regular attack, while 'piping' may cause serious damage during high water. Geotextiles can be used for soil stability while 3D erosion prevention mats can be installed above water level.

    Technical details
    • Enkmat R45 is a unitized high performance geosynthetic that incorporates a high tenacity polyester geogrid within the entangled filaments of the three-dimensional high-performance turf reinforcement mat.
    • Meets requirements of FHWA FP03 [Note 3] for high loading and high survivability TRM.
