Coco Straw Blanket
Temporary Erosion Control Mat
The Coco Straw Blanket is a temporary erosion control mat designed for use on low level slopes (up to 3:1) and low flow areas (up to 6 fps). Working to provide both high control and short-term stabilization, these mats use a straw/coco mixture that consists of 30% coconut coir and 70% wheat straw. This combination has helped to provide stabilization, vegetative support and erosion control where it is needed most. When compared to straw mats that are made of 100% wheat straw, blended straw/coco mats offer increased support and stabilization that can last anywhere from 18 to 24 months.
In addition to the blended mats, we also offer straw erosion blankets with single netting, double netting and rapid degrade netting. For additional options, check out our Straw Mats.
