Highlights & Features
BMK350 slope mat is available in 2 roll sizes, 60m²(42 x 1,2m) or 120m² (42 x 2,4m) . The erosion control mat, coir mat BMK350 is made of 100% natural coir fibers, which have excellent soil retention capacity and are quilted with a net and thread made of polypropylene. This creates a compact layer that provides immediate protection from erosion caused by slope, wind or rain, even before vegetation has developed.
Immediate erosion protection for slopes up to 40°
The structure of the erosion control mat reduces the energy input by water and wind on the surface and counteracts the removal of soil particles. In this way, you ensure efficient erosion protection. They provide optimum support for new vegetation and enable permanent planting even under the most adverse conditions. The coir slope mat is used on erosion-prone areas with slopes of up to 40° (1:1.2) for temporary erosion protection. The service life of the coir mat is up to 36 months. It depends on site conditions, soil, water, climate conditions and erosion hazard on site.
Quick and easy to install. Do not forget ground anchors!
The slope mat is laid on a prepared and, if necessary, seeded surface. The erosion control mat must lie on the ground over the entire surface and without voids. The individual sheets are to be laid next to each other perpendicular to the slope of the embankment. The overlap at the vertical longitudinal joints should be approx. 10 cm and at the transverse joints approx. 10-20 cm. The open edge of the overlap must face away from the main wind direction. Transverse joints must always overlap from top to bottom. The upper and lower ends of the erosion protection mat must be buried approx. 10-20 cm deep at the slope shoulder and slope foot and fastened accordingly. Fixing is done with the help of ground anchors BA230 or BA300 or wooden peg made of beech HPB 300.
Can also be used for slope planting or seeding
Thanks to these properties, it is also possible to green steeper slopes and/or embankments easily and safely with grass. For this purpose, we recommend sowing the lawn seed on the laid slope mat and then covering it with a fertile soil. In this way, the lawn seed can germinate and take root safely and the embankment is additionally stabilized in a natural way.
