HydroTurf™ is an engineered revetment solution specifically designed to provide armoring of hydraulic structures against high velocity and shear stress. It offers the aesthetics of vegetation combined with better performance than traditional hard armor. It is also significantly less costly than other traditional methods. Construction of the system is rapid, low impact and scalable, reducing the carbon footprint. HydroTurf™ provides an impermeable geomembrane protected by engineered turf which is infilled with HydroBinder™, resulting in a fiber reinforced high-strength concrete matrix.
HydroTurf™ is available in two system configurations:
HydroTurf™ CS is typically used for high velocity conditions and for protection of critical structures.
HydroTurf™ Z is ideal for less critical applications involving lower velocities and flow conditions
