Enkamat A is a heavier
and thicker high performance flatback three-dimensional matting made of
polyamide monofilaments pre-filled with a bitumen bound mineral filter of 2-5 mm
chippings. Enkamat A20 is approximately 22 mm thick and weighs
with a mat width of 4.8 m.
Enkamat A was developed over 25 years ago, and provides solid immediate erosion
protection but still allowing vegetation to grow through its structure resulting
in a naturally vegetated slope within a few months.
Enkamat A is used on river or canal banks, lakes and reservoirs and is resistant
to the wave action of small ships and pleasure craft. In particular Enkamat A is
designed to withstand high water velocities immediately after installation and
becomes even stronger as the vegetation establishes.
The permanent erosion prevention mat is flexible and permeable and allows
vegetation to grow through, thereby minimizing soil runoff and hydrostatic
