The multifunktional erosion control mat
Secumat® erosion control mats are used for slope and ground protection in road building, landscaping, and landfill engineering works. Waterways engineering works employ Secumat® on flood plains and embankments. Properly dimensioned it prevents the sliding and washing out of the soil and cover layer while facilitating rapid vegetation growth. Upon heavy rains and water flows, the reinforcing ability of Secumat® prevents erosion of the otherwise vulnerable vegetation. Once vegetated, Secumat® reduces runoff velocities and thereby increases infiltration and reduces discharge. Directly next to water courses, Secumat® protects the banks from the scouring action of water flow.
