What Is Envirolok?
Stabilizing slopes and water channels can be challenging and costly. Finding a permanent solution is nearly impossible without the help of Envirolok.
Envirolok’s patented bag technology provides a permanent vegetated solution by combining the engineered strength of soil with the principles of plant ecology.
Our non-woven geotextile bags permanently encapsulate the soil for maximized stability. Further reinforcement is achieved by using the patented spikes. For more complex projects, the Envirolok system is compatible with advanced reinforcement techniques, such as geogrid and anchoring systems.
The system is simple.
No extensive footings or engineered back fill. Minimal excavation allows easy construction in remote areas and with minimal impact to the land. Fill the bags, lay them in an overlapping pattern, compact and place the spikes. Add vegetation and you have a permanent solution.
Our bags were developed to a superior specification, ensuring permanent, maintenance free applications. The non-woven material can support thousands of pounds of pressure and still allow plant roots to grow through.
High impact polystyrene spikes are designed to add shear strength by connecting units together. The open designed washer system ensures a strong and simple connection that does not impede root growth like traditional connection plate systems.
We use a simple mix of 80% sand & 20% topsoil. No compost means no slumping and no chance of failure. Each bag is filled with 1.25 cubic feet of fill, giving the bag an overall size of approximately 1 square foot when used in a slope application.
Plant roots create a binding matrix through the bags and into the parent soil, locking the soil in place and providing permanent stabilization. The result is a lush green slope that will stand the test of time.
Collaboration is the key to success and our team is here to support project teams and property owners. From project studies, to design, engineering and product estimates, we collaborate every step of the way.
The Envirolok system is designed to provide permanent vegetative solutions in a variety of applications. Installation is simple and the design eliminates the need for expensive and time-consuming footings and extraneous amounts of excavation for backfill. This allows installation with minimal impact to the site and the environment.
