Engineered Earth Armoring Solution – ARMORMAX®
Engineered Earth Armoring Solution
ARMORMAX® Engineered Earth Armoring Solution is the most advanced flexible armoring technology available for severe erosion and surficial slope stability challenges. The ARMORMAX® erosion control system can be used in applications where additional factors of safety are required, including protecting earthen levees from storm surge and wave overtopping, and stream, river and canal banks from scour and erosion. In addition, this system is ideally suited to protect storm water channels in arid and semi-arid environments where vegetation densities of less than 30% coverage are anticipated. For slope stability applications, the system can be further engineered to provide surficial slope stabilization to resist shallow plane failures. Consisting of PYRAMAT® woven three-dimensional High Performance Turf Reinforcement Mat (HPTRM) with X3® fiber technology and Engineered Earth Anchors (EEAs), you can count on the ARMORMAX® system to hold its ground.
