Exposure to the elements can result in soil erosion. Water is the most aggressive and affects coastlines, rivers and hillsides.
Lotrak® geosynthetics can help to control erosion by creating a barrier between the water and the soil and rock particles. Separating the coast or river bank from the corrosive effects of the water, Lotrak® prevents soil and rock particles being dislodged and transported back into the sea or down river.
Rain can also cause surface erosion or hill slope erosion, and Lotrak® geotextiles control the flow of water into the soil, helping to avoid landslips. Lotrak® geotextiles are also used as temporary covers while hillside vegetation is established.
