Biomatrix - Model 4D - Floating Ecosystem Modules
From Floating Ecosystems
The 4D matrix is our strongest floating ecosystem. Structurally upgraded from the 3D with triple bolting to be applied in even more challenging and dynamic environments. 4D modules are suited to all types of planting and are recommended for locations with waves or flowing water.
- Planting = 3D Lanes
- Bolting = Triple SS 316
- Strength = 3,500kg
- INCREASED WATERFRONT VALUE
The floating islands transform hard-edged waterbodies into living water parks, increasing public amenity and recreation on appeal, raising the value and quality of surrounding properties.
- A SAFE HAVEN FOR BIRDS
Specially tailored platforms provide a sheltered refuge for birds safe from disturbance. A mix of habitat types can be created for specific species.
- RIVER-READY STRENGTH
Biomatrix builds the strongest floating ecosystems available with a pull strength of over 2,500 kg. This allows our clients to install projects in challenging and dynamic water condi ons.
- DESIGN FLEXIBILITY
Five interlocking components can be configured to form hundreds of Floating Island and Floating Riverbank shapes and are connected with tough stainless steel quick connect flanges.
Materials are carefully selected for recycled content and recylability and only non-toxic materials are used. Once grown, the system is typically 60% living biomass and 30% marine engineered materials.
- PRODUCT / INVESTMENT LONGEVITY
Biomatrix floating ecosystems are the longest lasting available using heavy duty marine engineering materials, including 316 Stainless Steel and HDPE with a typical lifetime of over 20 years.
- STRONGER FISH STOCKS
A subsurface forest of roots provides shelter for fish and ideal feeding grounds, improving fish stocks.
- IMPROVED WATER QUALITY
A micro-wilderness of submerged roots creates an ideal habitat for millions of microorganisms, which use algae, carbon and excess nutrients in the water as a food source, purifying the water.
