GreenArmor System

A revolutionary green alternative to hard armor.

Today, the fully vegetated GreenArmor System raises the limits of vegetation to velocities of 20 ft/sec and shear stresses of 17 lb/ft2.As the world’s most effective Green Design Engineering™ alternative to hard armor, the GreenArmor™ System offers a more aesthetically pleasing and environmentally superior means of protecting high-discharge waterways and steep slopes. You can learn about Keys to the System here. You will see that they bring together the most technologically advanced erosion control and revegetation products to provide:

  • 30-50% less cost than hard armor
  • Twice the erosion resistance of natural vegetation
  • Higher-density turf
  • Unmatched factors of safety

Watch our Video Demonstration which shows how the components come together.

Prior to the introduction of turf reinforcement systems, hard armor was used exclusively to accommodate sites where velocities (6-8 ft/sec) and shear stresses (2-3 lb/ft2) exceeded the limits of natural vegetation.
