Western Excelsior's Excel PP5-12 Turf Reinforcement Mat (TRM) consists of a matrix of ultraviolet stabilized, synthetic fibers stitched between two ultraviolet stabilized, heavy-duty synthetic nets. With a target weight of twelve ounces per square yard, the Excel PP5-12 provides sufficient thickness and durability to yield functional longevity greater than three years. The Excel PP5-12 is intended to provide immediate erosion control and long term turf reinforcement for the more severe slope and channelized applications. The Excel PP5-12 TRM provides erosion control and turf reinforcement for a minimum of thirty-six months, and likely much longer. Available in a variety of roll sizes, Excel PP5-12 provides reliable, economical erosion control and turf reinforcement for projects that benefit from a permanent material. Excel PP5-12 utilizes a blend of properties specifically designed to provide a high level of unvegetated performance, in addition to excellent vegetated performance. Like all Western Excelsior products, Excel PP5-12 is made in the USA and may yield LEED credits for the end user. In addition to a complete suite of standard documentation, detailed information on the advantages and properties of the product are provided below.
