Propex, a leading innovator, developer, and supplier of geosynthetics worldwide, offers products used in a variety of applications, including erosion control, drainage, and reinforcement. Propex erosion control products are designed to be cost-effective, technically proven, and permanent solutions to erosion problems. They are also environmentally sensitive alternatives to hard armour solutions.
Propex erosion control products offer a wide range of outstanding benefits. They utilize patented X3® fiber technology, ensuring remarkable UV resistance and optimized performance for prolonged channel and slope protection. These products incorporate either a dense web of polypropylene fibers nestled between two biaxial nets or a unique three-dimensional woven structure, which grants them a tensile strength up to 10 times that of rival products.
Additionally, their fibers offer over 40% more surface area than conventional alternatives, facilitating better moisture retention and aiding in the rapid growth of vegetation by efficiently trapping seed and soil.
Propex erosion control products are available in a variety of sizes and thicknesses to meet the specific needs of each project. They are also backed by the support of Global Synthetics’ engineers, who can provide full product performance data for applications.
Global Synthetics offers a range of Propex products for erosion control, including:
Landlok® Turf Reinforcement Mats
Pyramat® 25 High Performance Turf Reinforcement Mats
Pyramat® 75 High Performance Turf Reinforcement Mats
ArmorMax® High Performance Mat
In addition to providing high-quality erosion control products, Global Synthetics also offer a number of software solutions that can help engineers and contractors find the best solutions for their specific projects.
These software solutions include:
EC Design Software: This software is used to design erosion control systems for channels and slopes. It meets the requirements of Hydraulic Engineering Circular No. 15 (HEC-No15) and Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE).
To aid with the environmentally friendly and sustainable solution, Global Synthetics is proud to add all these systems are now supported by eco-friendly biodegradable pins, removing the need for adding steel into the ground.
