Tan Geotextile Good for Beaches, Arid Places

SI Geosolutions has introduced tan and green versions of its Pyramat® turf reinforcement mat. The tan was produced for use in arid and semi-arid regions, beaches and shorelines, and was used in a test application in Nevada in June. The green version was introduced in August

In lusher parts of the country, soil and vegetation quickly cover Pyramat in a matter of weeks,” said Bob Tlumak, director of marketing for SI Geosolutions. “However, in arid or semi-arid regions with sandy soils or beach areas that need erosion and scour protection, the HPTRM (high performance turf reinforcement mat) needs to reflect the appearance of the surrounding landscape, since it may be visible for quite a while. Our customers’ priorities are our priorities, so we’ve developed a tan version that satisfies the esthetic needs in these environments,” he said.
