Western Excelsior's PP5-Pro is a continuously woven High Performance Turf Reinforcement Mat (HPTRM). The woven structure of the material provides improved durability, consistency and strength compared to stitch or melt bonded materials. Additionally, PP5-Pro offers improved resistance to hydraulically induced shear. Like all Western Excelsior products, PP5-Pro is made in the USA and may yield LEED credits for the end user. Available in either a green or a tan coloring, the mat is composed of polypropylene yarns woven into a uniform resilient matrix with a repeating diamond pattern relief.
The Excel PP5‐Pro™ high‐performance turf reinforcement mat (HP‐TRM) is a machine‐produced mat of 100% UV‐stabilized, high denier polypropylene monofilament yarns woven into permanent, high‐strength, three‐dimensional turf reinforcement matting. The mat provides sufficient thickness, optimum open area, and three‐dimensionality for effective erosion control and vegetation reinforcement against high flow induced shear forces. The mat has high tensile strength for excellent damage resistance and for increasing the bearing capacity of vegetated soils subject to heavy loads from maintenance equipment and other vehicular traffic. The material has very high interlock and reinforcement capacities with both soil and rootsystems and is designed for erosion control applications on steep slopes and vegetated waterways.
