Secumat® is a three-dimensional erosion control mat with a labyrinth-like synthetic core.
Secumat® is multifunctional
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.
Secumat® is safe
The open structure of Secumat® allows soil filling over its entire
area and depth. Secumat® thus retains surface water and prevents
erosion. Root development is supported by the three-dimensional
structure of Secumat® adding to the strength of the vegetative
protection. It is resistant to all natural chemical or biological
substances present in the soil and is also extremely resistant to UV
radiation. The effectiveness of Secumat® is ensured for long-term
Secumat® is economical
The light Secumat® rolls enable a rapid and inexpensive installation.
They can be filled precisely using a minimum quantity of soil. The
Secumat® system can be deployed even on steep slopes stabilising
otherwise expensive to repair erosion-prone areas.
Secumat® is simple
Directly following installation, Secumat® is fully functional. In
steep slope areas Secumat® can be secured with staples or pegs. Once the
Secumat® is resistant to environmental influences and supports the
development of roots extremely well. Wherever Secumat® is used, a rapid
installation and a speedy vegetation of the slopes are ensured. With the
correct input parameters, Secumat® will eliminate erosion from even the
most demanding sites.
