Western Excelsior manufactures a series of permanent Turf Reinforcement Mats
(TRMs) to provide permanent turf reinforcement and immediate erosion control. The
Excel PP5 series consists of both standard, stitch bonded TRMs and High Performance
continuously woven options.
Stitch bonded TRMs offer excellent value in permanent stabilization. The PP5
series of stitch bonded materials include eight, ten and twelve ounce per square yard
(Excel PP5-8, Excel PP5-10 and Excel PP5-12 respectively) varieties. Designed to provide
increasing levels of unvegetated performance, the Excel PP5 series is constructed of
ultraviolet (UV) stabilized fibers stitch bound between heavy duty UV stabilized netting.
The Excel PP5 series provides outstanding value in turf reinforcement.
PP5 High Performance TRMs offer a minimum of 3,000 lb/ft of tensile strength
in either direction, significantly greater durability and a continuously woven design that
yields a material that is structurally stable. In addition to added strength and durability,
the High Performance option(s) have the highest level of resistance to chemical,
biological and ultra-violet degradation possible and industry leading vegetated
performance. High Performance TRMs are ideal to add structure and strength to the
ground surface and sub-surface soil while permanently reinforcing vegetation.
