Erosion Control Mat
Excelsior Control mat
The Excelsior Erosion Control Mat is a biodegradable option designed to address erosion control requirements in level or low flow areas. Made from 100% aspen wood, these mats provide erosion control, stabilization and coverage for up to twelve (12) months.
Working to provide superior coverage in your location, over 80% of the fibers in this mat are six inches (6") or longer. This helps to increase their strength and use in a range of environmentally sensitive locations. All aspen wood/excelsior mats are rated for slopes up to 3:1 and flows up to 6 fps. As with many of our erosion control options, excelsior mats are 100% biodegradable for protective use in your location.
