During roadwork construction, slopes and ditches require armoring for long-term site protection. Nilex solutions eliminate the need for traditional rock riprap which can result in environmental benefits and a reduction in project costs.
The EnviroGrid cellular confinement system (geocell) is produced from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) and has three dimensional cells that contain, confine and reinforce a variety of fill materials including native fill, topsoil, granular or concrete. This material has excellent resistance to...
Rolled Erosion Control Blankets provide soil erosion protection and assist in the establishment of vegetation on moderate slopes or low-flow channel applications where loose mulches or bare-ground seeding are not effective. Nilex carries a variety of Erosion Control Blankets including...
Gabions are wire mesh baskets or mattresses filled with stone. Gabion baskets are often used to stabilize slopes, armor pipe outlet structures or construct retaining walls. Gabion walls are permeable, strong, flexible, and often able to tolerate differential settlement. Gabion walls are...
Turf Reinforcement Mats (TRMs) provide immediate erosion protection and long-term site armoring. TRMs assist in the establishment of vegetation while permanently reinforcing vegetation for applications where the forces exerted by water exceed the shear limits of unreinforced vegetation. Typical...
The roadside channel section supporting a 15-acre (6 hectare) residential cul-de-sac was experiencing flooding onto the road and adjacent driveways during heavy rains. The choice of riprap for scour protection in the channel was proving problematic due to its thickenss and the large volume it...Read More

I want to thank you for getting things organized as quickly as you did for us and for the follow up calls and site visits that allowed us to get this work done and meet our schedule dates for the road work. As well, your product knowledge and ability to provide the technical support when dealing with the consultants was a major help in getting the system approved and installed correctly.
Not only was there a substantial cost savings realized by the client, there was also a benefit to the road structure as well. The original design road structure number was 3.780 and a calculated traffic (ESALs) of 2,147,000. The revised road structure number using the TX5 is 4.260 and a calculated traffic (ESALs) of 4,593,000.
Nilex was an invaluable asset in the successful completion of the Troutbrooke Drive Slope Stabilization project in Toronto, by providing engineering assistance, installation training and continuous on and off site technical support.
The CULTEC system was simple to install. We will be recommending, and looking forward to using the Cultec system for future projects.
We love you guys for getting this project [Energy Environmental Experiential Learning (EEEL) Building Grounds] completed in the timelines required.
