Triton® Filter Mattress System
The Triton® Filter Mattress System was developed to address challenging underwater installations, providing a method to deploy, place and secure geotextile fabric in deep water and/or strong currents. A Triton Filter Mattress features a geotextile fabric encapsulated within or attached to the bottom of a stone-filled mattress made of Tensar® Geogrid. The stone fill provides ballast weight for the fabric as well as a bedding layer for additional riprap or armor stone.
Triton Filter Mattress features include:
- Design flexibility - The ability to use a project-specific geotextile
- Performance options – Filter mattress thickness can be optimized to the level of performance required for the project (thinner mattresses reduce excavation and disposal costs as well as installation time)
- Installation flexibility - A variety of handling and installation techniques
- Tested for hydraulic stability at Colorado State University, the Triton Filter Mattress meets the challenges of effective overtopping and scour protection in difficult inland and coastal installation conditions.
