As our preferred erosion control product, EcoArmour is a ground-breaking, Australian designed and manufactured solution that allows for safe and effective installation on all surfaces. EcoArmour is a synthetic erosion control blanket that has been designed to be sprayed through high pressure Hydroseeder equipment. Once sprayed, it dries and sets in a matter of hours, providing extended high-shear resistant erosion control.
A blend of minerals, interlocking fibres and specialty binders form EcoArmour’s durable, non-flammable crust. The specialty binders adhere to and incorporate themselves into the substrate below, forming a tough, resilient cover that is also flexible enough to bind and move with the ground below it, eliminating any cracking of the coating. For aesthetic purposes, a colouring agent may be added to the EcoArmour blend, achieving colours varying from grey, brown, red and green to blend in with the surrounding environment.
EcoArmour's™ non-ﬂammable crust holds the substrate underneath in place, eliminating erosion caused by rain and wind.
Dries within 3 hours for immediate erosion control, lasting in excess of 20 years.
Can be applied up to 10 times faster than traditional erosion control blankets, reducing overall project time and costs.
Through hydrotruck equipment, eliminating installation safety risks.
The proprietary blend of minerals, interlocking ﬁbres and specialty binders makes EcoArmour™ suitable for even the steepest slopes.
EcoArmour's™ flexible membrane contours to the substrate below, binding and moving with it eliminating cracking.
EcoArmour is a highly effective technique for the stabilisation of batters and is a superior alternative for quicker and safer installation than conventional erosion control blankets such as Jute Mesh, Concrete Matting, Geosynthetic Cementitious Composite Mat (GCCM), Geotextiles, Geosynthetics, Posi-Shell and Shotcrete.
With the ability to be applied quickly and easily, EcoArmour is pneumatically projected at high velocity utilising specialist HydroTruck equipment, meaning that application takes days, not weeks. EcoArmour dries quickly, with the ability to withstand moderate rain events after 3 hours.
EcoArmour’s advanced technology means that it will stabilise surfaces for up to 20 years, making it the ideal erosion control and stabilisation product for vertical walls, roadside batters, steep slopes, drains, and all substrates including compacted clay, rock, sand, sandy loam, dispersive soils, and any soils that are extremely difficult to manage and access.
As with any erosion control specification, a site survey is initially undertaken to ensure the most appropriate solution is provide for the application and map the area. If required soil testing is undertaken. If EcoArmour is confirmed as the most appropriate solution. To maximise longevity of EcoArmour, site preparation is undertake to level the surface and apply emulsion.
Using either the Hose or HydroTruck application method, EcoArmour is applied to the area after being mixed perfectly using the agitators within the truck body to ensure an even application. EcoArmour dries quickly with the ability to with stand moderate rain events after 3 hours. Post application we survey the site with our drone technology to ensure a uniform application has been achieved on site. EcoArmour has a 100% success rate.
A 3D survey is undertaken to image map the area to a high degree of detail.
Where required, the site is prepared and the substrate is sprayed with emulsion.
Our highly trained technicians ensure the solution is mixed perfectly and applied evenly.
Fitted with the latest scanning and imaging technology, monitoring drones ensure that uniform application has been achieved.
EcoArmour™ features excellent adhesion properties to various substrates, including soil, clay, sand and sandy loam, rock, shale and weathered concrete, and can be applied to areas that are extremely difficult to manage and access.
EcoArmour™ is most commonly used for slope protection and slope stabilisation projects due to its superior erosion control qualities.
Acting as an effective weed suppressant, EcoArmour™ reduces costs in maintenance and installation while adding additional levels of impermeability and fire protection.
With greater installation efficiency, EcoArmour™ costs less and is able to be installed in areas with reduced access with ease, eliminating safety risks.
EcoArmour™ offers a cost-effective alternative to repairing damaged culverts and containment bunds, offering a durable means of erosion protection
