Triton® Marine Mattress System

100% Durable in Sea Water
5 Core Applications
100% UV Resistant
  • Designed for marine applications
  • Made from select grades of co-polymer polypropylene (PP) & high-density polyethylene (HDPE) resins
  • Highly resistant to UV and long-term abrasion damage
  • Resistant to installation damage and chemical or biological long-term degradation

A Triton® marine mattress is an engineered structure made from Tensar uniaxial geogrid that's filled with stone. These mattresses were designed for demanding conditions associated with erosion control armoring, scour protection, and submerged foundation projects, 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
  • Scour protection for channels, bridge abutments, and bridge piers

In addition to the durability and long-term tensile capacity of Tensar geogrids, the Triton marine mattress system provides superior performance due to its monolithic high mass and porosity, flexibility and hydraulic stability, energy dissipation characteristics, and sensitivity to wave run-up or reflection.

Triton marine mattresses can also be created with a geotextile fabric encapsulated within or attached to the bottom of the mattress, resulting in a Triton filter mattress.


Triton marine mattresses and Triton filter mattresses are constructed from UX100, UX200, UX300, and BX1500.

Why Choose Triton Marine Mattresses?

Tensar Triton marine mattresses are available in various styles and thickness options to meet specific project requirements. Increased hydraulic performance and constructability advantages mean Triton revetment mat systems can be significantly less expensive than conventional solutions such as riprap.

Withstand Heavy Erosion Action

Tensar Triton marine mattresses have been widely used for revetment applications, as well as for scour protection and channel linings. They are especially effective for heavy erosive action in any of the following conditions: salt water or other harsh chemical environments; irregular subgrade surfaces or soft subgrade soils; steep slopes, stream, or canal banks; wave or flow conditions that challenge the stability of a revetment mat's exposed edge; and rapid installation or emergency repairs.

Effective Contaminated Sediment Capping

 Triton marine mattresses have been deployed as part of a modular reactive capping system for the remediation of non-aqueous phase liquids (NAPL) contaminated sediments. The Triton marine mattress systems have been used to provide effective capping for a wide range of contaminated sediment projects. Triton mattresses can also be configured to encapsulate alternative fill materials, such as sand or carbon, in order to provide site-specific remediation solutions for a broad range of in situ capping applications.

A Resilient Solution

Tensar geogrids are 100% UV resistant and will not rust, leach, or degrade in direct sunlight. When you build with geogrids, you can count on a higher-performing and longer-lasting solution for future generations to enjoy.
