Coir Mat 40

The Coir Mat 40 Erosion Control Mats are the perfect solution for any location in need of long-term stabilization and vegetative growth. Constructed with high strength coir twine, these mats have been successfully used along hills, slopes and banks to stabilize and reinforce areas. All coir mats are completely biodegradable and feature natural fibers that are safe for the surrounding environment.

The Coir Mat 40 gets its name from a manufactured standard weight of 460g/m². Standard coir twine weaved in a design that leaves a 0.75" x 0.75" space for planting seeds or vegetation. Recommended use includes slopes up to 2:1 and water flows up to 8 fps.
