Dura-Mat is an effective product for erosion control in spillways and retention pond applications. These interlocking concrete units fasten together on all sides, forming a permanent, protective carpet with a solid-to-void ratio that allows for vegetation growth when desired.
DuraMat is designed as an interlocking puzzle-like unit which locks with each neighboring stone to form a strong cohesive mat for use in erosion control applications and retention pond floors.

There’s an emerging environmental consciousness across society that’s becoming ever more mainstream, and it’s expressed with the most clarity by the way consumers wield their wallets.
