Erosion Control Blankets
Short term photodegradable erosion control blankets consist of an evenly distributed layer of strong straw/coconut, coconut or aspen wood sticked to a single or double propylene netting structure with degradable thread.
Innovative solutions to soil stabilization problems, turf protection needs, erosion control and vegetation problems.
Dentention ponds • re-vegetation • slope stabilization • erosion control
Single-Net Straw Blankets
Constructed of 100% straw fiber stitched with photodegradable thread to a lightweight, photodegradable polypropylene top net. Designed to provide erosion protection and mulching on moderate slopes and low-flow channels in low-maintenance areas for up to 12 months. Designed for high-maintenance areas where close mowing will occur soon after installation, it degrades within 45 days because of special additives in the photodegradable thread and top net that facilitate breakdown in sunlight.
Double-Net Straw Blankets
100% straw-fiber matrix stitched with photodegradable thread between lightweight, photodegradable polypropylene top and bottom nets. The double-net construction provides greater structural integrity than single-net blankets, for use on steeper slopes and in channels with moderate water flow. Designed to provide erosion control and mulching for up to 12 months. Designed for high-maintenance areas where close mowing will occur soon after installation, the DS150 will degrade within 60 days because of special additives in the accelerated photodegradable thread and netting that facilitate breakdown in sunlight.
Double-Net, Straw-Coconut Blanket
Constructed with a layer of 70% straw and 30% coconut fiber stitched with degradable thread between a heavyweight UV stabilized polypropylene top net and a lightweight photodegradable polypropylene bottom net. The addition of coconut fiber and a UV stabilized top net increases the durability, erosion control capabilities, and longevity for use on steeper slopes, medium-flow channels, and other areas where vegetation will take up to 24 months to grow.
Double-Net, Coconut Blanket
Constructed of 100% coconut fiber stitched with UV stabilized polypropylene thread between heavyweight UV stabilized polypropylene top and bottom nets. The 100% coconut fiber and UV stabilized nets provide the highest level of durability, erosion control, and longevity for protection of severe slopes, steep embankments, high-flow channels, and other areas where vegetation will take up to 36 months to grow.
Curlex excelsior blankets are specifically designed to actually promote ideal growing conditions for grass seed, while simultaneously protecting topsoil from wind and water erosion. Curlex excelsior blankets have long passed the test of time. By design, Curlex blankets have a built-in swell factor – wet curled excelsior fibers slightly expand in thickness and interlock to form a strong, fiber matrix. This allows the fibers to provide intimate contact with local terrain. Water flow is trained to follow the curled fiber matrix. The roughness of the curled excelsior matrix slows the velocity to a point where gravity takes over, which allows moisture to slowly seep into the topsoil to promote ideal growing conditions
