Anchor Reinforced Vegetated Systems (ARVS) gain stability by pairing key engineering principles with specifically designed products, utilizing natural properties of on-site materials. Two companies joined in an exclusive partnership to offer you the highest performance options for ARVS stability. Gripple's Terra-Lock@ system, complemented by Western's permanent high performance turf reinforcement mats (HPTRMs) delivers a comprehensive solution optimized for site-specific challenges.
HOW ARVS WORKS
1 —HPTRMs: The soft-armoring permanent erosion control product conforms to the earth's surface and allows composites to form between materials. This soil-product composite stabilizes the surface. The open 3D structure allows for rapid vegetation growth, with the roots forming a complex matrix with the erosion control product. The product's strength allows high loads to be transferred from anchor to anchor.
2 —Terra-Lock@ Top Plate: The top plate uses 'grip & pull' technology allowing tension to be applied to the cable tendon. This tension creates a truncated cone of consolidated soil between the HPTRM and the Anchor which determines the load bearing capacity of the system.
3 —Terra-Lock@ Anchor: The innovative install and 'flip' of the anchor means it reaches beyond failure planes and accesses the soil's engineering properties with minimal disturbance.
