HydroTurf is an engineered revetment solution specifically designed to provide armoring of hydraulic structures against high velocity and shear stress. It offers the aesthetics of vegetation combined with better performance than traditional hard armor. It is also significantly less costly than other traditional methods. Construction of the system is rapid, low impact and scalable, reducing the carbon footprint. HydroTurf provides an impermeable geomembrane protected by engineered turf which is infilled with HydroBinder™, resulting in a fiber reinforced high-strength concrete matrix.
HydroTurf has been extensively tested in full-scale laboratories and project applications for extreme hydraulic performance. Through long-term weathering tests, HydroTurf is designed to have a 50+ year functional longevity when properly maintained.
