Turf Reinforcement Mat
Erosion Control Mats
The Turf Reinforcement Mat (TRM) is one of the highest strength erosion control mats available for erosion control and soil reinforcement. Ideal for arid or semi-arid conditions, these mats provide a high level of strength and stability in some of the most demanding locations.
TRMs typically feature green polypropylene fibers that are placed in between black, UV stabilized matting. Their high strength and extended longevity (over 36 months) makes them an ideal option for erosion control along steep slopes, channels, riverbanks, vegetated water ways, and other arid locations.
