Go Green Coir
Mat Blankets are another solution for soil erosion. These are made with 100% coconut fibre with
photodegradable or biodegradable top and bottom grids stitched up together. Top
and bottom PP net layers hold the coir fiber with the help of stitched yarn.
Blankets are also used to prevent
the seeds and prevent the soil losses until vegetation is firmly established.
Coir mat can be pre-seeded with selected seeds depending on the location. This
helps to reduce the off velocity and moderate moisture and the temperature.Using
coir blankets you can prevent soil compaction and crusting. It will resist wind
and rain forces. These
benefits accelerate vegetative development while the blankets decompose over
time and become part of the soil.
This coir mats have been developed for extreme
slopes, high-discharge channels and applications requiring permanent protection
and reinforcement. Due to increased public environment awareness and rising
costs of repairing erosion damaged sites, erosion control have become serious
considerations on all projects. Considerations sites with un-vegetated steep
slopes and/ or surface drainage ways are prime targets for erosion. Each
erosion control blanket/ coir mat is designed for a specified range of erosion
control and revegetation conditions considering soil and environmental
thickness of the coir blanket differs from one to another according to the
specified applications and can be supplied in roll form with a maximum width of 2.4 meters and
length of up 50 meters. Considering
your requirement and the loadability of the container we can propose the
suitable length. Customers are free to discuss about the requirement and we are
in a position to propose the right range and all the information you need to
know. Each roll is packed
with clear and impermeable polypropylene wrapping which shall not undergo
deterioration or damage during handling, transportation and storage.
Grade and shape the area of installation. If applicable,
prepare seedbed by loosening 2” to 3” of topsoil. Fertilizer is recommended
prior to seeding and installation of blankets & matting’s. Make sure soil
is free of clods, rocks, wood and other obstructions so that the blankets &
matting’s are in direct contact with soil.
In most cases, it is recommended that seeding be
done prior to installation of blankets. For turf reinforcement mat and open
weave matting, seeding is often done after matting installation. Best results
are achieved when a veneer of soil is raked over the broadcast seeded surface.
Straw or hay mulch may be added after seeding. All check slots and other areas
disturbed during installation process should be re-seeded.
U-shaped metal staples (11-gauge minimum, 6” to 12”
long) or wooden stakes (at least 12” long) can be used to anchor blankets to
the ground. Keep a minimum edge distance of 2” from the edge of the blankets to
the center of the staples or stakes.
