Armadune wind mats are designed to work in sandy, desert environments. The mats’ tapered cells help collect sediment while the excelsior matrix collects moisture and allows root system development.
The mats typically are picked up with forks on a skid steer and straddle the pipeline before being set down. The mats are rolled out by hand and with the help of an excavator. A future improvement to installation will include rolling the wind mats on a tube and using spreader bars in order to avoid rolling by hand.
