MacMat®

MacMat® is a geomat of thick polyamide filaments designed to be secured to vulnerable slope face to prevent surface erosion from run-off.

MacMat® is a three-dimensional matrix of UV stabilized, non-degradable synthetic fibres, heat bonded where they cross. It is used for long-term erosion protection applications and it immediately increases the soil’s resistance to erosion by providing an environment that enhances the growth of vegetation through the mat.

It is secured to the ground using suitable pins / stakes as required in the project.

MacMat® R – Steel

Macmat® R is a geomat made from a three-dimensional matrix of UV stabilized, non-degradable synthetic fibres, heat bonded where they cross, extruded onto a double twisted steel woven mesh. The reinforcing hexagonal double twisted steel wire mesh has mechanical characteristics greater than the ones recommended in EN 10223-3. The steel wire is with heavily galvanised and may also be protected with an extruded polymeric coating for greater protection.

Used on vulnerable soil slopes, exposed to erosion, MacMat® R immediately increases the soil’s resistance to erosion by providing an environment that enhances the growth of vegetation through the mat. Quality topsoil is brushed into the 3-d matrix of the mat following installation.

It is also used within water courses to provide hydraulic erosion protection. The MacMat® R is secured to the ground using suitable pins / stakes as required in the project.

Its most common use however, is within soil nailed slopes; the soil nails provide the overall slope reinforcement with the MacMat® R providing surface strengthening and support between the nail heads.

MacMat® R – Polymer

Macmat® R Polymer is a geomat made from a three-dimensional matrix of UV stabilized, non-degradable synthetic fibres, heat bonded where they cross, extruded onto a polymeric geogrid reinforcement. The reinforcing geogrid strength can be selected to suit the project requirements.

Used on vulnerable soil slopes, exposed to erosion, MacMat® R immediately increases the soil’s resistance to erosion by providing an environment that enhances the growth of vegetation through the mat.

It is also used within water courses to provide hydraulic erosion protection. The MacMat® R is secured to the ground using suitable pins / stakes as required in the project.

Its most common use however, is within the protection works to landfill membranes or in mine-remediation works. The geogrid reinforcement provides greater structural integrity, when the mat is used to contain and reinforce soil on long slopes.

MacMat® L

Our MacMat® L composite is a standard MacMat® geomat (three-dimensional matrix structure with a bi-conical shape formed by the extrusion of polymer filaments) joined with a heat-bonding process to a reinforced geomembrane. The geomembrane is a woven polypropylene geotextile laminated on both sides with a polypropylene film.

MacMat® L is suitable for erosion control applications which also require a lining/protection function of the area being protected.

Typical application are in small irrigation channels or water draining trenches.
