Pomona Pipe Products is a distributor of all Tensar® products including the Triton® Filter Mattress System. This was developed to address challenging underwater installations, providing a method to deploy, place and secure geotextile fabric in deep water and 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® Coastal and Waterway Systems feature a number of
innovative composite marine structures used for construction
applications in and around water. Triton Systems are made of
advanced geogrid and geotextile materials and are designed
to be integrated with available fill and/or vegetation.
Triton® Systems are typically used for the following
Erosion control projects
Foundations or cores for breakwaters, groins, etc.
High-strength fills built in submerged conditions or with
weak fill materials
Channel linings and bridge scour protection
Causeways, levees, dikes and bridge approach projects
In situ capping of contaminated sediments
Shore protection and sediment dewatering
Increased hydraulic performance and constructability
advantages mean the Triton® Systems can be significantly
less expensive than conventional solutions such as riprap.
They also conform to land contours and site configurations
while resisting scour far better than rigid systems. Because
our geogrids enable the Triton® Systems to resist all
naturally occurring forms of chemical, biological and environmental
degradation, they are often specified for salt water,
industrial run-off conditions and contaminated sediment
capping where other types of materials would deteriorate
rapidly. Marine Mattresses are available in various styles and
thickness options to meet specific project requirements.
The Triton® Grid Composite System is specially developed
for use beneath riprap and armor stone. By combining
Tensar® Geogrids with geotextiles, Grid Composites provide
an improved foundation and filtration layer for a broad range
of riprap, rubble-mound structures and similar installations.
Nominal roll size is 12 ft wide and 164 ft long.
Triton® Marine Cells are used to construct high-strength,
composite earth fills in adverse conditions – including
confined, structural-quality fills built below the water level
or with weak fill materials (a geotextile liner placed within
the cells enables the use of fine-grained fill materials).
As a three-dimensional foundation mat, Triton Marine Cells
can improve not only constructability but also stability,
bearing capacity and distribution of pressure. Their rapid
filling characteristics and ability to reduce dewatering
requirements can shorten construction timetables and
Geotextile tube systems are among the newest solutions for
sediment dewatering and containment. These systems offer
an economical and environmentally friendlier alternative for
conventional remediation and civil engineering projects.
Triton® Gabions offer a durable, non-corrosive and installation-friendly
alternative to conventional steel wire gabions –
including those galvanized and PVC-coated. They are
advantageous for a number of earth stabilization and
erosion protection applications.
For centuries, soil bioengineering techniques have been used
to protect and restore sensitive watersheds. Among its many
applications, soil bioengineering sustains vegetated systems
that provide erosion control with many additional benefits.
The Triton® Marine Mattress™ System is a proven leader in
the coastal and waterway erosion control market. Some of
the characteristics that make the Marine Mattress Systems
so effective for erosion control also make them effective for
in situ capping of contaminated sediments. Triton Mattresses can also be configured to encapsulate
alternative fill materials, such as sand, carbon or CETCO®
Organoclay® materials in order to provide site specific
remediation solutions for a broad range of in situ
