Straw Blanket Specifications
When compared to other biodegradable straw blankets, these straw/coco blends are designed specifically for applications involving increased flows or steeper slopes. While the the standard straw blanket is equipped for temporary erosion control (up to 1 year), the straw and coconut fiber blanket blends offers increased support for steeper slopes and longer erosion control needs.
When compared to the straw fibers, the coconut coir material is built for increased strength and longevity of use. While the straw blankets are generally designed to last up to 1 year, the coir fibers can offer erosion control for anywhere from 4 to 6 years. For this reason, coir is often blended into straw blankets for increased support and erosion control. For stronger control options, please check out our Coir Erosion Control Mats.
