North American Green
mats (TRMs) offer numerous advantages
over conventional TRMs and have
been proven to be more cost-effective. The
cost of TRM reinforced vegetation is less
than one-third the installed cost of rock or
concrete and requires no heavy equipment.
North American Green's
TRMs are surface-
applied and require no costly soil-infilling. They help create a microenvironment
which protects the seed bed, assists with germination and
provide turf reinforcement to optimize vegetation.
The UV-stabilized, synthetic-matting structure
maintains its strength and integrity even under
long-term exposure to sunlight.
For high-load and severe erosion applications, the North American Green ® P500 Turf/Earth Reinforcement Mat (TERM) is designed to offer veneer stabilization and high tensile strength for increased durability in high-impact conditions. The combination of high strength geogrids, heavy UV stabilized nets and a permanent polypropylene fiber matrix allow for surface vegetation without soil infilling. Unlike some woven monofiliament TRMs, the stiched matrix does not impede vegetation growth.
When combined with Tensar's North American Green ® Earch Anchors (EA), the P500 TERM forms a flexible armoring system that controls erosion, reinforces vegetation and stabilizes earth in the most extreme conditions.
