Applications

  • Overtopping protection of earthen levees
  • Canal, stream, and river bank protection from erosion and scour
  • Arid and/or semi-arid storm water channels & slopes
  • Earthen dam slopes and spillways
  • High flow stormwater channels in residential and commercial applications
  • Lake bank restoration for golf course and other property enhancement projects

  • Features & Benefits

  • Reduces erosion, reinforces vegetation
  • Promotes sustainable aquatic habitats with aesthetic enhancement
  • Withstands hydraulic stresses including high water flows and wave impact
  • Allows for controlled overtopping for levee resiliency
  • Withstands non-hydraulic stresses from debris flow, loading of tractors, etc.
  • Promotes infiltration of surface water
  • UV stabilized with 75-year design life

  • Savings & Advantages

    ARMORMAX® offers a cost-effective alternative to rock slope protection and soil nailing with shotcrete. Easy to install compared to conventional armoring, saving on labor costs.




    ARMORMAX® for Slope Stability

    ARMORMAX® Engineered Earth Armoring Solutions for slope stability consists of a High Performance Turf Reinforcement Mat (HPTRM) and Engineered Earth Anchor that provide resistance to shallow plane slope instability with the benefit of a surficial erosion controlling surface treatment. The system is an engineered solution for cost-effective, easy-to-install, and aesthetic stabilization of steep slopes, sloughed banks, and other geotechnical applications.

    Applications

  • Roadway embankment sloughing
  • Airport land side and air side slope stabilization
  • Steepened embankments along creeks and streams
  • Canal bank stabilization
  • Commercial and residential slope failures
  • Coal ash impoundment stability
  • Levees and flood control structures

  • Features & Benefits

  • Provides engineered geotechnical stability against shallow plane slope failure
  • Easy to install HPTRM and Engineered Earth Anchor
  • Significant cost savings over conventional slope reinforcement methods
  • Can provide temporary shoring and stabilization for constructed slopes
  • Reinforces vegetation for aesthetic surficial erosion control
  • Highly UV stabilized for applications with little or no vegetation
  • Lightweight and easy to transport into areas with access challenges
