Geovegetation

These products are distributed only in the province of Quebec.

Geovegetation products are natural or synthetic mats designed to minimize the impact of natural elements such as rain, running water and wind on soils. These temporary or permanent solutions specifically chosen due to environmental constraints provide additional protection by reinforcing soil, minimizing erosion and promoting vegetation regrowth.

Mats

NATURAL MATS

Straw-based

Anti-erosion mats are generally deployed on slopes, berms or banks to protect them against the effects of heavy rains or wind. Their function is to retain soil particles until vegetation has taken adequate hold. Unrolled directly on the reconditioned soil and held in place with stakes, these mats can be used in combination with hydraulic sowing. Natural and biodegradable, straw mats are the entry solution in anti-erosion control, ideal for light short term applications.

Wood-based

Anti-erosion mats are generally deployed on slopes, berms or banks to protect them against the effects of heavy rains or wind. Their function is to retain soil particles until vegetation has taken adequate hold. Unrolled directly on the reconditioned soil and held in place with stakes, these mats can be used in combination with hydraulic sowing. Natural and biodegradable, wood-based mats are a technical evolution over straw mats offering better cohesion and coverage than straw, ideal for intensive short term applications.

Coconut-based

Anti-erosion mats are generally deployed on slopes, berms or banks to protect them against the effects of heavy rains or wind. Their function is to retain soil particles until vegetation has taken adequate hold. Unrolled directly on the reconditioned soil and held in place with stakes, these mats can be used in combination with hydraulic sowing. Natural and biodegradable in the medium term, coconut-based mats are sturdier than their natural alternatives made of straw or wood and are available in the form of high-strength woven structures or socks allowing their use in applications with steep slopes or in immersed or floodable areas.

SYNTHETIC MATS

Landlock

Landlock vegetation reinforcement mats are generally deployed on slopes, berms or banks to protect them against the long term effects of heavy rains or wind on soil and vegetation. Their function is to promote rooting of vegetation and to protect the root system for the long term thus allowing retention of soil particles and preventing their washout. Unrolled directly on the soil, the open structure of the mat lets the root system take hold and anchor the mat to the soil for the long term. Permanent and non-biodegradable, Landlock synthetic mats are a technical evolution over natural mats offering increased longevity, ideal for intensive long-term applications.

Pyramat

Pyramat vegetation reinforcement mats are generally deployed on slopes, berms or banks to protect them against the long term effects of heavy rains or wind on soil and vegetation. Their function is to promote the rooting of vegetation and to protect the root system for the long term thus allowing retention of soil particles and preventing their washout. Unrolled directly on the soil, the open structure of the mat lets the root system take hold and anchor the mat to the soil for the long term. Permanent and non-biodegradable, Pyramat synthetic mats are a technical evolution over natural mats offering increased longevity, ideal for very intensive long-term applications.

MATS AND CONCRETE STRUCTURES

Armorflex

Armorflex is an articulated mat of concrete blocks with uniformly distributed openings allowing vegetation to root. This product is generally used to prevent stream or canal bank erosion. It can also be used in certain specialized applications such as boat launching ramps. By virtue of its important weight and permanency, Armorflex is the ultimate solution where anti-erosion mats are concerned.

A-Jacks

A-Jacks are concrete modules of a particular shape allowing for their random or aligned distribution to create an energy dissipation barrier for the protection of banks in the presence of currents. The matrix created by their stacking leaves spaces on river banks favorable to the growth of vegetation and aquatic life. If needed, spaces can be filled with soil promoting the growth of vegetation and protecting the latter from the effects of erosion.s protecteur anti-érosion.
