Erosion Control Products

Why use Erosion Control Products?

Erosion due to the forces of water and wind is naturally occurring. The combination of wind strength, water volume and the height, length and steepness of the slope are key factors that influence the amount of erosion.

With variety of innovative solutions for erosion control available from JDP, effective ground control can provide multiple benefits on site, and with many of these products are degradable, allowing vegetation to grow in a stable environment, more natural stabilisation can take place.

Erosion Control Blankets

An erosion control blanket installed in an irrigation ditch.

Commonly abbreviated to ECBs, JDP supply a range of products to control erosion, minimise sediment run off and, crucially, encourage growth of vegetation. The Landlok products are also biodegradable, with a life span of one, two or three years. These mats consist of a blend of fibres and straws.

Features & Benefits

  • Captures 700% more sediment than channels lined with hard armour
  • Gives an environmentally friendly solution
  • Attractive, natural appearance
  • Holds seed and soil in place preventing soil from washing away
  • Highly effective protection from the effects of wind and rain
  • Improve water quality through vegetation filtering sediment out

Applications

  • Channel erosion protection, low to moderate flow slope protection, medium to moderate inclines

Cellular Confinement System

A cellular control system filled with white stone.

Cellular Confinement Systems are manufactured from high density polyethylene (HDPE) strips ultrasonically welded together to create a strong, lightweight, three dimensional panel.

Expanded on-site they form a honeycomb-like structure with interconnecting cell walls incorporating drainage holes to prevent water logging.

The unique hoop strength forms a durable composite mattress that can be filled with common materials for the most demanding load support and erosion control applications.

Features & Benefits

  • Save up to 50% on infill materials compared to other load support systems
  • Reduces need for excavation
  • Reduces sub base thickness
  • Simple, speedy installation saving on construction costs
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Protection for germination on vegetated slopes

Applications

  • Retaining walls
  • Erosion control and slope stabilisation
  • Channel protection
  • Tree root protection
  • Load support
  • Ground stabilization

Erosion Control Mat

A black erosion control mat on a steep slope.

Trinter is one of the latest developments in erosion control. Polypropylene and HDPE nets are heat bonded to form a corrugated structure. This provides a structure for root systems to interlock, stabilising the top layer and allowing a strong, deeper root system to build up. Providing the most effective solution for erosion control.

Features & Benefits

  • Strength allows for use on slopes of any length and gradient
  • Best soil retention properties available
  • Flexibility means natural contours are followed enhancing performance
  • Prevents drying out by allowing roots to span soil layers

Applications

  • Road, motorway and railway cuts and fills
  • River banks, channels and irrigation channels
  • Reservoir embankments, dams and lagoons
  • Grassed spillways
  • Culvert inlet and outfalls
  • Golf courses, lawns and residential areas

High Performance Turf Reinforcement Mats

A HPTRM holding a slope with a protruding pipe.

Commonly abbreviated to HPTRMs, these non-degradable synthetic mats provide additional performance to standard TRM’s for extreme applications.

Features & Benefits

  • Captures 700% more sediment than channels lined with hard armour
  • Three times the UV stabilisation of standard TRM’s
  • Ten times stronger than standard TRM’s
  • Reinforces vegetation by anchoring root structure
  • Holds seed and soil in place preventing soil from washing away
  • Highly effective protection from the effects of wind and rain
  • 33 – 50% cost savings against traditional hard armour systems such as rock riprap

Applications

  • Channel erosion protection, most demanding flows
  • Slope protection, most demanding slopes
  • Erosion prevention for areas requiring immediate protection
  • Ideal for arid environments or sites where limited vegetation growth is expected
  • Storm water runoff for pipe inlets and outlets

Turf Reinforcement Mats

A TRM on a steep hillside.

Commonly abbreviated to TRMs, these non-degradable synthetic mats provide twice the erosion protection of vegetation alone and provide immediate erosion protection. Used in lining systems they provide excellent longterm protection and reduce maintenance.

Features & Benefits

  • Captures 700% more sediment than channels lined with hard armour
  • UV stabilised
  • Reinforces vegetation by anchoring root structure
  • Holds seed and soil in place preventing soil from washing away
  • Highly effective protection from the effects of wind and rain
  • 33 – 50% cost savings against traditional hard armour systems such as rock ripra

Applications

  • Channel erosion protection, high flow
  • Slope protection, steep inclines
  • Erosion prevention for areas requiring immediate protection
  • Open channels
  • Drainage ditches
  • Detention basins
  • Steep slopes
