When it comes to erosion control, Australian Concrete Mats are the industry leaders. Designed and manufactured in our Northern NSW facility, these innovative mats are engineered to last a lifetime while offering practical solutions for a wide range of applications. Whether you’re a rural landowner or a civil contractor, our concrete mats provide a reliable and eco-friendly way to tackle erosion issues efficiently and effectively. Let’s dive into what makes these mats a must-have for your erosion control needs.

Durable and Long-lasting

Australian Concrete Mats are built to withstand the test of time. Each mat is composed of uniformly placed pyramid-shaped 50mpa concrete blocks that are interlocked and embedded into a high-strength (80x80kN/m) polyester geogrid. It’s like uniformly sized (160x148x58mm) rocks tied together into a mat that helps create a stable, yet pliable and robust surface.

Similar to rocks, as the water flows over it the mats help to protect and prevent erosion. But because they are all interlocked together, they don’t wash away like loose rocks! They stabilise the ground too, the all-in-one matting distributes pressure across the concrete mats, so that external forces are dissipated, and erosion is prevented.

This unique construction not only ensures excellent drainage but also provides a solid foundation that can handle heavy loads and harsh environmental conditions. From roads and railways to bridges and drainage systems, Australian Concrete Mats are designed to offer a lifetime (50 to 100 + expected design life) of durability, making them a cost-effective investment for any armouring, erosion control or stabilisation project.

Versatility in Applications

The versatility of Australian Concrete Mats is truly unmatched. They can be used in a multitude of applications, including Stormwater Management, Dam Embankments and Spillways, Rehabilitation and Regenerative Projects, Remote Access Tracks, Creek crossings, Causeways, Boat Ramps, and Waterway Access Points. Their flexibility allows them to be installed on slopes, curves, and uneven terrain without compromising on stability. This makes them ideal for challenging landscapes and project sites where other erosion control methods might fall short. Whether you’re looking to create a stable surface to drive on, protect a waterway access point or reinforce an embankment, Australian Concrete Mats have got you covered.

Concrete mats are supplied across all manner of Sectors from Private enterprises, Energy Resource and Mining, Agricultural and Horticultural, Civil and Marine Projects, Environmental, Rehabilitation and Regeneration works to Regional and State Government Utilities, Public Works, National Parks and Emergency Response Operations and recovery.

Quick and Easy Installation

One of the standout features of Australian Concrete Mats is their ease of installation and low logistical footprint and can be installed in adverse conditions. Unlike other erosion control solutions that require extensive groundwork, specialised equipment, consultants and training, and often time-consuming processes, ACM mats are quick to install and easy to use. They arrive onsite ready to install, with no specialised equipment needed. They can be transported and dropped to site ready to install, which means they are often used on difficult terrain and hard-to-access projects, like a helicopter drop where a truck cannot access, or loaded onto a barge to a remote beach.

This not only saves time but also reduces costs of labour and equipment, allowing your project to be completed more efficiently and with a low logistical footprint. The mats are supplied in rolls, which are simply unrolled into place, secured by using anchor pins, and they start working straight away! They can be top-filled with soil and seeded to encourage vegetation rehabilitation or used without covering. Their user-friendly design ensures that even those with minimal construction experience can install them with ease.

Eco-friendly and Safe

At Australian Concrete Mats, we prioritise sustainability and safety. Our mats are eco-friendly, and designed to integrate seamlessly with natural landscapes while minimising environmental impact. They help to improve water quality, by aiding in filtration and filtering of the runoff. They are safe for traffic of vehicles and livestock and are often used on roadside drainage, dams, driveways, spillways, outlets, and more without posing any risk to animals or the ecosystem. In fact, they help to support nature while the ecosystems are established and can take over to create a stable vegetated habitat. By choosing our concrete mats, you’re not only investing in a durable and effective erosion control solution but also contributing to the regeneration and rehabilitation of the environment.
