Flexamat® offers a permanent solution to stop shoreline erosion while aesthetically conforming to the landscape. Flexamat stops erosion caused by waves, ice, burrowing of muskrats/nutria, and erosion caused by fish, such as Tillapia. Flexamat enables safe maintenance of the shoreline. Commercial mowers may be used over Flexamat or allow native vegetation to grow wild.
Flexamat enhances safety. Steep eroded banks make it hazardous to maintain or even walk along the shoreline. Many municipalities have regulations that ensure minimum slope requirements. Flexamat helps provide a stable walking surface if the shoreline is used as an entry point for canoes or kayaks.
Eroding sediment from shorelines is a major source of pollution. The eroded sediment has many negative impacts on natural ecosystems, such as making the water shallow, which can lead to artificially warmer water temperatures. Flexamat re-enforces natural vegetation and locks the shoreline permanently in place.
