What is a Triton Marine Mattress?

A Triton® Marine Mattress is an engineered structure made from Tensar Uniaxial Geogrid that's filled with stone. These mattresses were developed for erosion control and submerged foundation applications, including:

  • Shoreline revetments and dune stabilization
  • Foundations for breakwaters, jetties, groins and dikes
  • Pipeline cover to prevent scour and protect submerged pipelines
  • Scour mats for underwater pipeline crossings and sewage outfalls
  • Riverbank protection, channel lining and bridge scour abatement

Triton Marine Mattresses are available in various styles and thickness options to meet specific project requirements. Increased hydraulic performance and constructability advantages mean Triton Systems can be significantly less expensive than conventional solutions such as riprap. Learn more in our eBook below.
