Use & Purposes
High Performance Turf Reinforcement Mats (HPTRM’s) offer permanent engineered solutions that provide erosion control and can assist in establishment of vegetation, but primarily provide permanent reinforcement to the soil until such a time as vegetation can be fully established. HPTRMs are typically used in situations where water flows are strong, soils are poor and vegetation is difficult to establish.
High Performance Turf Reinforcement Mats are perfect for moderate flow storm water channels, banks and steep slopes where both immediate and long term erosion control are needed. HPTRMs trap more seed, soil and water than traditional hard armour products, yielding faster and fuller vegetation.
When installed properly, Turf Reinforcement Mats have very high very high velocity and sheer stress tolerances, long-term material longevity, relatively low material and installation cost, aesthetic appeal, high permeability and don’t interfere with wildlife or their habitat.
Pyramat® 25 TRMs are perfect geosynthetics for moderate-flow storm water channels, banks and steep slopes where both immediate and long-term erosion control is needed. Using our patented X3® fiber technology, a Pyramat turf reinforcement mat traps more seed, soil and water in place than traditional hard armor products, yielding faster and fuller vegetation. X3 also provides reinforced vegetation with twice the erosion protection of other TRMs and erosion control blankets.
Pyramat® 25 TRMs are available in 1st or 2nd generation material construction. Our 1st generation TRMs are constructed of a dense web of polypropylene fibers positioned between two biaxially oriented nets. 2nd generation TRMs feature a 3-dimensional woven material construction which allows increased design life over 1st generation netted, fused, glued or stitch-bonded TRMs. All of our TRMs are made of 100% synthetic, ultraviolet (UV)-stabilized components and are completely non-degradable.
Second generation TRM. 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 through the TRM. Available in green or tan.

Pyramat® – Blue Metal Hill
During construction of the Hume Highway the consortium tasked for the design and construction of this project encountered a number of environmentally sensitive areas through which clean water open drains had to be constructed. The original design called for traditional concrete drains and rock beaching.View More Case Studies
