Coir Mesh™ coir erosion control blankets are open weave, pure coconut, meshes that offer the strongest and most durable natural fibre surface erosion control solutions available. They are therefore recommended on sites where erosion forces/climate are harsh, or plants slow to establish.
Typical applications for coir meshes include riverbanks and drainage channels (where flow rates and stresses are high); exposed sites such as uplands or coasts; wildflower restoration (because plants require longer to develop); and recreation areas (as abrasion is high).
Coir Mesh™ coir erosion control matting effective controls soil loss and promotes sedimentation; create a favourable micro climate to promote growth; shelter seedlings against windrock; decompose slowly to provide prolonged protection; and their high tensile strengths can be utilised to offer temporary soil reinforcement.
A wide range of coir mesh densities, and patterns (including looped piles), are available to provide the ideal balance between surface protection and the requirements of flora.
