Scour Protection

Tensar North American Green's* Erosion Control Systems have proven solutions for your scour protection needs. Pipe outlets, channel bottoms and shoreline transition areas all present unique scour protection challenges. Issues include slowing stormwater runoff, sedimentation migration and environmental impact and budgets. Regardless of what scour protection challenges and issues are involved in your project, you can be sure we have the solutions you need.

Rigid and hard armor scour protection products may offer options, but they come at certain costs. That’s why project designers prefer the aesthetics and safety offered by our flexible revetment mats -- especially our ShoreMax® Transition Mats. ShoreMax Mats can provide a cost-effective armoring solution in turbulent flow and wave attack applications while promoting vegetation establishment through their structure. The result: greater aesthetics and easier long-term maintenance. And with Tensar’s exclusive Erosion Control Materials Design Software (ECMDS®), you can determine the best product or combination of products to solve your erosion problems and keep your project in compliance with National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) or other environmental regulations.

Whether your project is simple or demanding, requiring erosion control, sediment control or both, you can rely on Tensar’s Erosion Control Systems including:

  • ShoreMax Transition Mats 
  • VMax® Turf Reinforcement Mats

* Tensar International Corporation acquired North American Green (NAG) in 2004 to enhance its position as the premier provider of technology-driven solutions. We are proud to continue offering the same level of service, quality and high performance erosion control products under the Tensar brand.
