Choosing a Straw Erosion Control Blanket
Step 1: The first step in choosing a straw erosion control blanket is to determine which style matches the flow and steepness of your locations. For straw, there are two main types of erosion blankets:
|Single Net Blankets||Low Slopes
(up to 3:1)
|Double Net Blankets||Mild Slopes
(up to 2:1)
Straw Blanket Models
Step 2: After determining whether you require a single net or double net blanket, the next step is choosing the type of netting that is required for your site. Netting can be chosen based on required life expectancy or location. Both single net and double net options come in three standard models:
|Standard Netting||Polypropylene||up to 12 months||Slopes, Hills, Banks||Single Net
|Biodegradable Netting||Jute||up to 12 months||Environmentally Sensitive Areas||Single Net
|Rapid Degrade||Rapid Degrade Polypropylene||90 days||Slopes, Areas with Fast Rooting Vegetation||Single Net
This variety helps to address stabilization requirements in almost any location.
Straw/Coco Blend Erosion Blankets
Coconut/Straw Blankets are typically recommended for areas that require higher flow rates, steeper slopes or longer-term use. Since coir is typically longer lasting and stronger than straw, these blankets are able to accommodate areas with significantly higher flows or steeper slopes. Blended mats will usually feature a double netting design.
|Straw/Coir Blankets||Steeper Slopes
(up to 1:1)
|Higher Flow Rates|
Securing Erosion Blankets
Regardless of which blanket you choose, pegs, staples and stakes are required to secure the matting to the slope or hill. Available models include accessories made from wood or metal, as well as Biodegradable Models made from environmentally safe particles. Either can help keep your blankets securely in place for the duration of their use.
