Carthage Mills' RVX™ Armor System was designed to meet the challenges of the most severe of erosion events. The RVX™ Armor System consists of Enkamat® R30, a uniquely constructed, flexible, highperformance turf reinforcement mat (HPTRM) and aluminum alloy percussion driven anchors. Its high tensile strength, over 2,000 lbs/ft, assures high survivability and longterm design performance.
The HPTRM is comprised of woven high–tenacity polyester yarns for reinforcement at low strains; entangled within a three dimensional matrix of continuous nylon monofilaments fused at their intersections. When anchored with the S2 aluminum alloy percussion driven anchors to compressed soils 24"–36" beneath the surface, the RVX™ Armor System provides resistance to any further movement of the anchors and soils; permanently secures the mat to the ground; and promotes the establishment of vegetation with an integrated reinforced root system.
Carthage Mills' RVX™ Armor System represents the latest in advanced flexible armoring technology. While aesthetically pleasing, it outperforms and provides permanent and cost–saving solutions to the more conventional methods of gabions, concrete filled mattresses, rock and concrete riprap, and interlocking concrete blocks.
