There are various fasteners available for affixing mats, which are used to avoid mats from rising up and thus from getting removed from areas that need plant protection or coverage. To get the best performance, you need to pay attention to fastener selection.
Greenfix fasteners include 200mm and 300mm steel fasteners, 300mm wooden pegs, and 150mm biofasteners.
The fasteners are suitable for use with all Greenfix erosion protection systems. When choosing your fastener, you need to account for the type of installation, the length and gradient of the slope, the soil type, and annual rainfall. Below are some common recommendations for the number of needed fasteners, based on the length and gradient of the slope and estimated run-off.
