North American Green VMAX TRMs
North American Green provides an unmatched portfolio of Turf Reinforcement Mats (TRMs). This variety allows for consideration of the unique features of each site. The Vmax line of TRMs is typically installed with the same fasteners and patterns as erosion control blankets (ECBs). Unlike ECBs, these are long-term solutions with components that provide reinforcement of vegetation for a minimum of 25 years.
PRIMARY APPLICATIONS, FEATURES, AND BENEFITS
- SC250® TRM: The VMax SC250 TRM has a 70% straw/30% coconut fiber matrix to enhance initial mulching and erosion control performance. Unvegetated, it reduces soil loss under shear stress up to 3.0 psf and increases permanent vegetation performance up to 10 psf.
- C350® TRM: A 100% coconut fiber matrix supplements the VMax C350 TRM’s permanent three-dimensional netting structure. Unvegetated, it reduces soil loss under shear stress up to 3.2 psf and boosts permanent vegetation performance up to 12 psf.
- P550® TRM: P550 TRM has a polypropylene fiber matrix augmenting the permanent netting structure. Unvegetated, the VMax P550 TRM reduces soil loss under shear stress up to 4.0 psf. The ultra-strong structure drives the vegetated shear resistance up to 14 psf.
- W3000® HPTRM: VMax W3000 is the only multi-layered, UV-stabilized woven permanent product with mat strata providing zones for both root and stem vegetation reinforcement. It is designed to provide increased tensile strength up to 3800 lbs/ft, thickness and optimum open area for effective erosion and vegetation reinforcement against high-flow induced shear forces.
