Enka®Grip

EnkaGrip is a 3D polyamide mat sewn to a reinforcing woven fabric, created for the stabilization of soil and vegetation on steep or rocky slopes, geomembranes or geosynthetic clay liners.

On steep and rocky slopes, EnkaGrip functions as a grip layer in which soil is retained and seeds germinate easily. EnkaGrip is pinned to ensure close contact with the ground.

Smooth surfaces

Where geomembranes are used to cap landfills and line retention ponds or reservoirs, they need to be protected against UV and mechanical damage, usually by a layer of soil which is then vegetated. However, the friction between a smooth geomembrane and soil is too low, allowing the soil to slide off easily. In such cases, EnkaGrip will provide the necessary friction and anchorage. A vegetation layer can then be established in areas where this would otherwise have been impossible.
