Turf Reinforcement Mats (TRMs)

Our Landlok Turf Reinforcement Mats (TRMs) are the industry's most advanced solutions for applications requiring immediate, long-term erosion protection, vegetative reinforcement and water quality enhancement capabilities. Our first generation TRMs are constructed of a dense web of 100% polypropylene fibers positioned between two biaxially oriented nets. When vegetated, they provide twice the erosion protection of vegetation alone. Now we've taken the same woven technology in our High Performance Turf Reinforcement Mats (HPTRMs) and used it to design the next generation of TRMs.

These netless, composite-free three-dimensional second generation TRMs feature a rugged material construction that combines superior tensile strength, flexibility and UV stability. This allows them to deliver better, long-term performance over traditional methods like rock riprap and concrete paving and increased design life over first generation netted, fused, glued or stitch-bonded TRMs. All Landlok TRMs feature our patented X3 fiber technology, which provides 40% greater surface area for trapping and protecting seed and soil.

Turf Reinforcement Mats Slopes Channels

1st Generation LANDLOK TRMs (Features & Benefits)

  • Provides permanent turf reinforcement to enhance vegetation's natural ability to filter soil particles and prevent soil loss during storm events.
  • 100% synthetic and UV-stabilized components.
  • Utilizes X3 fiber technology for up to 40% greater surface area to protect emerging seedlings and sediment retention.
  • More aesthetically pleasing than conventional methods (i.e. rock riprap and concrete paving).
  • Superior product testing and performance.
  • Easier installation than conventional solutions (no heavy equipment required).

2nd Generation LANDLOK Woven TRMs (Features & Benefits)

All the features and benefits of first generation Landlok TRMs, plus:

  • A unique, patented matrix of pyramids formed with X3 fibers that gridlocks soil in place under high-flow conditions.
  • 3-D woven material with superior tensile strength for loading and/or survivability requirements.
  • Greater flexibility to maintain intimate contact with subgrade, resulting in rapid seedling emergence and minimal soil loss.
  • Completely interconnected yarns that provide superior UV resistance throughout the TRM.
  • A combination of superior characteristics for long-term performance and a longer design life than first generation Landlok TRMs.

Outperforms and is more cost-effective than conventional erosion control methods, including:

  • Rock riprap
  • Concrete paving
  • Erosion Control Blankets (ECBs)
