Program 1: Engineered Earth Armor Solutions
Mr. Michael Johnson, P.E., Marketing Development Manager with Propex Geosolutions will be discussing "Engineered Earth Armoring Solutions". The focus of the presentation will be the soil stabilization and erosion control mitigation capabilities of the Propex brand of Turf Reinforcement Mats (TRM) and High Performance Turf Reinforcement Mats (HPTRM). The ARMORMAX system consists of Pyramat 75 HPTRM coupled with an engineered earth anchor that provides permanent tie-down for either severe erosion and/or structural slope stability. The Pyrawall system is an Engineered wrap-face vegetated solution for constructing reinforced earth walls and steepened slopes that consist of Pyramat 75 and fiber-composite internal bracing. The Scourlok system is a robust Engineered Bank Stabilization system designed to resist extreme hydraulic stress and protect shorelines and banks while promoting vegetation that is designed to provide below water scour protection.
