GeoRunner Scour Protection Mats

High-Performance Transition Mats Stop Scour

GeoRunner® Scour Protection Mats are  an economical solution for protecting soils from scour in erosive environments. GEORUNNER® mats protect soils from erosion and vegetation loss in areas with intermittent or concentrated flows, and when embankments are exposed to fluctuating water levels. They offer resistance to shear stresses, and protect more efficiently than typical vegetation or rip rap systems. GEORUNNER® mats are stabilized with a strong anchor system designed to resist pullout caused by high-flow lifting forces, even in saturated soils. The mat’s open mesh design allows dense and stabilizing vegetation growth. End-to-end and side-to-side corrections create a completely integrated and secure mat system. Fully anchored units can be driven on by mowing or other lawn maintenance equipment.

Better Vegetative Growth

Compared to other transition mats, the open lattice design of georunner mats allows for dense, stanilize vetetation with better root engagement and reinforcement.

Natural Appearance

GeoRunner mats placed over a TRM offer similar resistance as rip rap, but with a naturally vegetated appearance that supports unimpeded access by mowing/lawn maintenance equipment. Rip rap is prone to collection of garbage and debris and is more difficult to maintain

Performance Backed By Research

Colorado State University hydraulics testing: GEORUNNER increases baseline TRM shear stress and velocity performance by a factor of 6.1 and 2.6, respectively.
