When slopes are stabilized, people often wish for the plants to grow back quickly. This can be due to aesthetic, geological, or ecological reasons. Not to mention the fact that plant roots also stabilize layers of loose rock close to the surface and contribute to erosion control. For this purpose, TECCO® SYSTEM3 offers the TECMAT® – an erosion control mat that is laid below the TECCO® mesh. This holds the ground and seeds in place – thereby promoting regrowth.
In September, together with TECCO® GREEN, we finished preparing a solution for the market that combines our proven TECCO® G65/3 with an environmentally friendly erosion control mat in one product. Slope stabilization and erosion control are therefore quickly installed at the same time. This supports regrowth on slopes without having to introduce any additional steps or different processes.
Positive side effect: The green color of the control mat immediately ensures a natural appearance.
This new member of the TECCO® SYSTEM3 has been able to demonstrate its qualities in a number of pilot projects in Spain and Germany. It has never been so efficient to stabilize a slope with protective meshes and to fit this with erosion control.
In practice, the results are extremely pleasing: The effect at the installation site is apparent after a pleasingly short amount of time, and plants begin to grow within a very short time frame. As a result, TECCO® GREEN is a product in our range that provides us with yet another strong advantage over our competition and therefore opportunities for growth.
