Effective Erosion Control Solutions
The TQ Vegetative Pre-seeded Felt is a biodegradable fabric for erosion control and revegetation of surfaces subject to run-off and surface erosion. It is made up of a weave of natural and biodegradable cellulose fibres containing seeds of grass species and fertilisers. The TQ Vegetative Pre-seeded Felt is used on slopes, banks of canals and wherever revegetation is impeded by erosion caused by precipitation. It is made of natural materials that decompose naturally and do not contaminate the environment with chemicals. Seeds are protected inside the biomat, they germinate spontaneously and the biodegradable fabric decomposes naturally in the soil once the seeds are completely developed. TQ is available in rather light reels that can be moved manually. The product can be installed quickly and it adjusts to the soil structure. It can be combined with a geomat for erosion control. In order to speed its installation and maximise its effectiveness, TQ has created the Multimat P pre-seeded geomat, where the Multimat three-dimensional geomat is factory laminated to the TQ pre-seeded felt.
Slopes and embankments
Landfills and contaminated sites
Reservoirs and canals
The Multimat three-dimensional pre-seeded geomat is specifically designed for protecting slopes from surface erosion, prevents the development of cracks and supports and speeds slope revegetation. It can be used for road and railway embankments, for protecting banks of reservoirs and canals and for covering landfills. Its structure is the same as TQ Multimat. It is composed of 2 external layers of flat polypropylene (PP) geogrids and a single central layer, folded in order to give thickness and solidity to the product. A Vegetative Pre-seeded Felt is inserted in Multimat P in order to support and speed revegetation. The felt is made up of natural biodegradable cellulose fibres containing seeds of grass species and fertilisers. The layers are industrially stitched together with a highly resistant thread that provides compactness. The product is flexible, therefore it can adjust to the soil structure and can be laid also if there are bends or if the slope changes. Multimat P is available in rolls up to 3.85 m wide that are quicker to install (e.g. in landfills), or in 2.40 m wide reels for small works.
