RIVER AND STREAMBANK EROSION CONTROL

Flexamat® stabilizes stream and riverbanks while maintaining their natural environment. Often, willow stakes and riparian plugs are incorporated within Flexamat.  Riparian vegetation thrives within the armor. The low profile of Flexamat prevents debris or logs from catching the mat and helps keep the waterway open to positive flow.  

Wildlife can safely cross Flexamat.  The matting also helps provide a stable walking surface if using the shoreline as an entry point for canoes or kayaks.

Un-vegetated, Flexamat has high performance capabilities of 30 ft./sec and 24 psf.  From day one of installation, Flexamat has better performance than compared to 24" rock rip rap.

Often, working within the stream or river may not be possible.  The compact roll design enables Flexamat to be installed from an excavator sitting within the right-of-way.
