Erosion Control

TenCate Polyfelt® Polymat

TenCate Polyfelt® Polymat erosion control mats (ECM) are monofilament Geomats made from polypropylene, with or without Geogrid reinforcement. The structure with its extremely high voids content reinforces the upper 1 to 2 cm of the soil, thereby preventing surface erosion on slopes and offering permanent support to topsoil and vegetation. 

The benefits of TenCate Polyfelt® Polymat at a glance:

  • TenCate Polyfelt® Polymat protects all kinds of slopes on a long-term basis
  • Allows quick vegetation of steep slopes
  • Effective erosion control from the very first stage
  • Protects green surfaces from erosion by precipitation and floods
  • Quick and easy installation, absolutely environmentally friendly

TenCate Polyfelt® Polymat is available in different configurations:

  • Polymat 810, 1210 and 2010
    The three-dimensional structure provides optimum interlock between sub grade and top soil.
  • Polymat 2020
    The monofilament mat is reinforced by a Geogrid. At very long or steep (> 30°) slopes, the slope stability is significantly increased by taking up higher tensile forces. Furthermore, the reinforcing grid increases the stability against suction forces, e.g. when a dike is over flooded.
