Erosion control mats & erosion control fabrics improve soil retention and protect against unwanted soil erosion caused by e.g. water, precipitation, wind, slope, incline or decline.
All products in the erosion control range make it possible to immediately protect an existing area from erosion through their soil retention capacity. Erosion can be caused by various factors, e.g. water, precipitation, wind, inclination, slope or gradient. Erosion protection thus refers to measures against unwanted soil erosion and serves to preserve existing soils of uncultivated areas or to promote vegetation, planting or revegetation on areas at risk of erosion.
Erosion control fabric or erosion control blankets?
Erosion control fabrics are created by weaving a coir or jute twine in an almost right-angled, crossed weave. Therefore erosion control fabrics consist of 100% natural fibers such as coir or jute. By not using synthetic fibers, our erosion control fabrics are completely biodegradable. They are used for erosion control in the same way as erosion control blankets, but are used on more erosion-prone, for example non-cohesive, stony or clayey soils, as well as steeper surfaces with a slope greater than 35 degrees. Other areas of application include banks and retention areas. Erosion control fabrics also support the permanent greening of growing plants, the sowing of turf (seed mat) to form a closed vegetation cover in the shortest possible time.
Natural fibers such as coir, jute, straw or?
Erosion control mats are classically made of natural materials such as coir or straw, but are additionally quilted with a plastic thread made of polypropylene. This creates a particularly compact layer that provides excellent soil retention and ensures immediate protection against erosion. Spoilt for choice: coir, jute or straw? With or without stitching? That depends primarily on how long you want the product to remain. Erosion protection made of jute and straw has an average life of about 12 months coir about 36 months before they biodegrade. Coir is much more tensile and robust than jute. Straw, on the other hand, only "works" by being stitched with twine, but is comparatively very inexpensive to obtain.
Mats for slope stabilization & slope stabilization
All mats and fabrics are recommended for slope stabilization and slope stabilization. Depending on the linguistic usage, it comes to the use of different terms, such as slope mat, slope protection mat, slope protection fabric, slope mat, slope stabilization fabric erosion protection fabric, erosion protection mat, when it comes to the description of the application. When it comes to the description of the product, the following terms are usually used: Coir mat, jute mat, straw mat, coir fabric and jute fabric.
