Enkamat® R45 is a unitized high-performance geosynthetic that incorporates a high tenacity polyester geogrid within the entangled filaments of the 3-dimensional turf reinforcement mat (TRM). The combination of a high-strength tensile member for reinforcement at low strains and the TRM for root entanglement provides unique properties for erosion control applications along shorelines, in channels, steep slopes and as a grip layer under vegetated veneers. Enkamat R45 is manufactured from nylon and polyester to eliminate the buoyancy factor associated with submerged conditions. Enkamat R45 replaces Enkamat S - the original High Performance TRM
Permanent erosion control for shorelines and green (vegetated) channels with expected shear stresses ≤ 20 psf and surficial stability for steep slopes (≤ 0.5H:1V).
Support and enhance hydraulic and agronomic performance of ecosystem plants.
Channel lining, shoreline or slope protection for erosion control applications with extreme hydraulic forces or where high modulus, high tensile strength is required.
