Geomat – MacMat® are made of synthetic material filaments, tangled together to form a highly deformable layer 10-20 mm thick, featured by a very high porosity (greater than 90% on average).
They can be used on slopes, along the banks of canals and river courses, or to convey liquids (drainage) in association with geotextiles and/or geomembranes.
The main applications are:
- Superficial erosion protection caused by the impact of rain drops and rills
- Lining of river banks with low water velocities
Macmat® is a geomat obtained by a polymer made three-dimensional extruded matrix.
Macmat® R is a reinforced geomat obtained by a polymer made three-dimensional matrix extruded onto a double twisted steel woven mesh.
