PYRAMAT® for Erosion Control & Slope Stabilization

PYRAMAT® High Performance Turf Reinforcement Mat (HPTRM) is a three-dimensional, lofty, woven polypropylene geotextile. Designed with patented X3® Fiber Technology, it is specially engineered for superior erosion control on steep slopes and vegetated waterways. PYRAMAT® delivers the highest specification requirements for erosion protection of slopes, banks and channels. It is also the only HPTRM to have a verified carbon footprint by an independent third-party. From cradle-to-grave, the carbon footprint of 1m2 of PYRAMAT® 75 HPTRM is 2.7 kgCO2e, which is equivalent to driving seven miles.
