Double the performance of natural vegetation.
Futerra® TRM is made of polyamide (nylon) filaments thermally fused at their intersections to create a homogeneous matrix. Developed in 1972, it is arguably the most specified TRM on the planet today. It is unique because 95% percent of its matrix is open space, which supplements nature’s own erosion control system by reinforcing plant root systems. When fully vegetated, Futerra TRM can withstand water velocities greater than 20 feet per second and shear stresses of 10 pounds per square foot!
