FHWA Classification: Type 5A, B or C Permanent Turf Reinforcement Mat
P-550 is comprised of a permanent, ultra high strength three dimensional matting structure incorporated with a 100% polypropylene fiber matrix. The P-550 is designed to provide both long term, prevegetaed erosion protection and permanent turf reinforcement in a wide variety of applications, including extreme-flow channels, spillways, stream banks and shorelines.
The 100% polypropylene fiber matrix augments the permanent mattings initials mulching and erosion control properties as well as its permanent vegetation reinforcement capabilities.
The P-550 drives the shear resistance of vegetation to over 14 lbs. per square foot, establishing a new maximum for vegetation reinforcement.
