Filtrexx® Channel Protection

The Filtrexx® Channel protection is a flexible soft armoring system designed to stabilize and prevent erosion of channel beds and banks used for storm water conveyance and concentrated storm water flow.

The Channel protection technology provides structural protection, erosion control, vegetation establishment, and vegetation reinforcement in the same system.

The weight and anchoring system can withstand high storm runoff velocities and hydraulic shear stresses surpassing most traditional soft armoring devices (turf reinforcement mats, rip rap, cellular confinement systems) as tested by Texas Transportaion Institute.

  • structural stability of channel and swales
  • prevent bed and bank erosion
  • scour protection
  • control of stormwater velocity
  • dissipation of runoff energy
  • sediment and soluble pollutant reduction in storm water
