Erosion Control Matting
Coir Mat 60
Coir erosion control matting is a 100% biodegradable mat designed to help with soil stabilization and slope reinforcement. Designed with a weight of 600 gsm, these mats feature an open weave design that creates openings that are approximately 0.75" x 0.5" in size. These openings allow for plants, seeds, and plugs to be planted into the area both before and after installation.
Similar to our other coconut fiber matting, these mats are constructed from machine-spun bristle coir twine. This high strength product provides the support needed, while allowing the mat to biodegrade over a period of 4 to 6 years.
