Geomats 

Geosynthetics for erosion control and soil stabilization 

Geomats decrease erosion and increase vegetation

Geomats are polymer fiber products used widely to protect vulnerable slopes from erosion and to encourage vegetation. They are a good solution for the soils suffering from the degrading impact of rain, drain water, wind and waves. They are made of water-permeable synthetic materials such as polyethylene or polypropylene. There is also an option of biodegradable geomats made of biodegradable fibres such as coir and straw – they are called biomats.

Features and Benefits

Thorough protection

Localized breaks in the grass and bush cover root system often lead to erosion. Geomats protect bare soils from this and ensure rapid re-vegetation. They create a stable surface that is highly resistant to the erosive effects of water and wind.

High effectiveness

When installed before the erosion process starts, geomats reduce the amount of eroded soil by over 50% compared to unprotected banks. 

Suitable for harsh conditions

 The reinforced geomats allow the retention of a thick surface soil layer even on very steep non-water permeable slopes (for example, stabilization of surface layers in re-cultivation of landfills).

Easy installation

They are light and easy to handle. Place the geomat on the ground at the beginning of the project and roll it up when the vegetation is cultivated. You can roll it up all at once or in separate blocks. 

Strength & durability

With high tensile strength, geomats can withstand heavy water flows of up to 4 m/s. This way, they can prevent the displacement of small or large soil particles. Geomats are long-lasting polymeric structures. Their layers are connected using thermal technology, which prolongs their service life and increases weather resistance.

Environmentally friendly

They are reusable and extract no dangerous substances to the surrounding environment, so they are toxin-free and eco-friendly. 

Applications
  • Slopes to be covered with vegetation

  • Slopes of trenches and canals

  • Banks of canals, ponds and artificial reservoirs, as well as covering for landfills

  • Rock fall protection

  • Reinforcement of riverside land or coastline

  • Protection from landslides and hydro-erosion, especially near roadside constructions

FAQ’s

This is text that will be here so that it looks nicer. something

How are UltraCor® structures different from other ViaCon bridge solutions?

They are stronger and wider than SuperCor®, Hamco MP200plus®. As opposed to CON/SPAN, they are made of steel and not concrete so they are more ecological and 30-40% more cost-efficient. And unlike Acrow® 700XS®, they are applicable for buried solutions but take a bit longer to install.
