ShoreMax is a flexible transition mat that offers an armoring solution in turbulent flow and wave attack applications. It is designed as mechanical protection over highly erosive areas. ShoreMax provides protection against much higher shear stresses and velocities than turf reinforcement mats (TRMs) alone. ShoreMax is a unique, highly flexible UV stabilized rubber mat designed with voids to allow vegetation establishment through the mat, or natural infilling of sediment. ShoreMax is a versatile product that should be used in conjunction with other erosion control products such as turf reinforcement mats above water lines and geotextiles below normal water lines.
