Backing Options for Concrete Erosion MatsAustralian Concrete Mats can be manufactured with various backing materials
Australian Concrete Mats (ACM) can be supplied with or without backing materials depending upon its final application
Choose one of these 3 options…
No Backing – ACM can supply the erosion control mat without a backing material,
This method you can grass and seed before unrolling the mat.
Australian Concrete Mats supply the concrete erosion mat and you supply and install your backing material of choice.
Purchase Australian Concrete Mat with a Nutrition Geotextile backing material already attached ready to unroll as one.

What is Nutrition Geomat?
Nutrition Geomat is a newly developed biodegradable erosion control blanket used to protect soils in areas exposed to wind or high rainfall. Nutrition Geomat provides an ideal media for seed germination as it protects the soil from erosion while encouraging strong and healthy vegetation. It is used for the stabilisation of embankments or batters, and also inhibits weed growth during re-vegetation.
Nutrition Geomat is made from high strength polypropylene fibres needle punched with wool and plant fibres. The soft, needle-punched geotextile has a high tear resistance and excellent drainage. Wool aerates the substrate and retains water. This reduces watering frequency and allows optimal root growth.
As the wool decomposes it slowly releases valuable plant nutrients – Nitrogen-9%, Phosphorous-1% and Potasium-2% as well as Calcium, Magnesium, Iron, Sulphur and micro micronutrients into the soil. The result is strong, healthy vegetation without the need for additional fertilisation for up to 6 months.
Advantages of Nutrition GeoMat
- Easy to seed;
- Less water is required to achieve a high germination percentage and high survival rate;
- Inhibits weeds during early plant growth;
- Vegetation is strong and healthy;
- Max water flow rate is 4m/s. before Australian Concrete Mat is attached above it.
