Flexamat® Erosion Control

Flexamat® is a permanent erosion control mat utilized for stabilizing slopes, channels, low water crossing, inlet/outlet protection, and shorelines.

It consists of concrete blocks (6.5˝ x 6.5˝ with a 2.25˝ profile) locked together and embedded into a high strength geogrid. There is 1.5˝ spacing between the blocks that gives the mat flexibility and allows for optional vegetation growth. The mat is packaged in rolls, making transporting and installing Flexamat® efficient.

Storm-tex Flexamat

Flexamat is ideal for lining high flow channels and swales

Standard widths are 4′, 5.5′, 8′, 10′, 12′, & 16′. Rolls are available in custom lengths. 4′ x 4′ mats stacks on pallets are also available.

Flexamat® is simple and efficient to install. An excavator is the ideal machine to install Flexamat®. The proposed area for Flexamat® should be prepared to a finished grade, with no rocks or debris that would uplift the mat. Prior to installation, seed the area with a site specific seed mix. Flexamat® rolls are installed by using the excavator bucket to unroll the rolls. And because it is concrete there is no need to staple anything down. The upstream end needs to be trenches to ensure it is not undermined and then the rest can be rolled out with overlaps in the direction of flow.

This product can be used in lieu of slope paving and rip rap. Because hydraulic pressure builds up behind concrete slope paving it tends to cause failures, cracks or voids. With Flexamat® the water can push through the Georgia to relieve pressure while maintaining the slope. It also allows for infiltration of water from the surface which decreases impervious surface on the site.
