Enkamat

Three-dimensional mat for erosion control

overview

A 3D open-structure polyamide mat to prevent erosion on embankments, slopes and river banks, canals and reservoirs.

Keeping fertile soil in place permanently

Keeping fertile soil in place permanently

A protective reinforcing and integrated intermediate layer between natural vegetation and soil, providing a permanent solution. Either seeded, filled with topsoil or mulched, it keeps fertile soil in place and prevents fill from being washed out.

FUNCTIONS
  • Erosion control.

  • Vegetation root systems reinforced by special mat structure.

  • For protecting dry or wet slopes, or below the waterline.

  • For watercourses, embankments, slopes and spillways.

Efficient performance

  • Open structure encourages swift vegetation growth.
  • Blends discretely into the landscape.
  • Locked to the ground by root systems.
  • Adapts easily to soil profiles.

Technical details
  • Enkamat is made from high quality polyamide (PA) monofilaments which are welded where they cross.
  • It is available in thicknesses up to 20mm.
  • It is produced in rolls up to 4m wide. It is available with a ‘flatback’ for use with stone chip fill where it is permanently submerged below the water level.
  • It is also available sewn to a textile or fabric for diverse erosion control applications.
  • Enkamat creates an artificial root structure by its high filament density – up to 2980m filaments   per m2.
  • Available as an open mat for dry slopes, or as a ‘flatback’ mat (with a flattened underside) for wet slopes and for use below the waterline.
