ShearForce is a hybrid turf and instant armoring mat that prevents surficial erosion while promoting vegetative growth. ShearForce is a stabilization alternative to riprap in channels, in outfalls, in spillways, on levees and on severe slopes. As opposed to traditional turf reinforcement mats, ShearForce does not fully rely on vegetation for stabilization; once vegetation grows through the matting, stabilization capabilities rise much higher than riprap. ShearForce requires little to no machinery and no maintenance, and provides a natural, green aesthetic with permanent erosion protection.
