Presto GeosystemsPresto Geosystems, a leading manufacturer of soil stabilization and stormwater products, announces a new product offering, Geoterra GTO construction mats. Presto is well-known in the geosynthetics and erosion control industries for its geocells, porous pavement systems, and portable construction mats. The company has been manufacturing construction mats for over 10 years, primarily for site access and pads in oil drilling regions. Geoterra GTO meets the industry needs for a fast deployment construction mat and is ideal for temporary access roads, work platforms, tracking pads, and temporary and long-term storage. That lighter weight compared to traditional heavier timber or HDPE mats equates to ease of handling, deployment and installation, as well as safety. The mats can be installed and moved onsite by hand without special or heavy handling equipment. The connection of Geoterra GTO mats with large poly bolts makes them fast to mobilize and demobilize and configure to a site’s

BonarEnkaSolutions, Bonar’s geosynthetics portfolio, includes Enkamat Turf Reinforcement Mats (TRMs) in its group of erosion control products. Enkamat is available in a variety of weights for application in a wide range of project needs. At the Landings Club Golf Course on Skidway Island in Savannah, GA, Enkamat R45 was chosen for its open filament design, which would allow healthy growth of marsh grasses, as well as its high-strength, long-term durability, which would help it withstand maintenance equipment. A littoral shelf, to be constructed just below average pool elevation, would be vegetated with wetland species. From a budgetary and aesthetic perspective, the reinforced vegetation is a welcome alternative to installing costly concrete or unsightly hard armor solutions, and provides an environmentally beneficial

Borgert ProductsIn the US, continuing development increases impervious areas; therefore, an increase in stormwater management is required. The current conditions have resulted in problems from poor water quality to frequent flooding and erosion issues. Current infrastructures are over-burdened and costly to expand. As a solution for managing stormwater, Borgert Products developed and patented a permeable pavement system called FiltraPave (Patent# 737,465/737,466). The FiltraPave system is designed to remove surface water runoff and its pollutants, eliminating the need for costly expansion to infrastructure and wasteful detention ponds.

Fiber Marketing InternationalRainier Fiber is a 100% virgin wood fiber from clean, fresh-cut Western softwood chips. Fiber separation is by thermo-mechanical defibration utilizing high-temperature steam combined with mechanical action. This combination of clean wood chips and heat produces the best sterile and toxic-free mulch available to germinate and grow seed, stolons, and sprigs. Rainier Fiber Plus Tacifier has a high-grade organic tacifier uniformly mixed with the wood fiber. This gives stronger bonding of the fibers to the soil and increased erosion protection on
