Coconut Erosion Control Blanket
Coir Matting for Stabilization and Reinforcement
A coconut erosion control blanket is an excellent way to control erosion and stabilize slopes, soil areas, and hills. Coconut fiber blankets, also known as coir blankets or coir matting, are made from all natural fiber materials that will naturally biodegrade over a period of 2-5 years. This provides stabilization for extended periods of time, allowing for vegetation to take root.
Our biodegradable erosion control blankets are typically made from coir fibers and coir twine that is woven together to form a sturdy control matting option. The fiber is natural to prevent harm to surrounding wildlife and vegetation. The coconut erosion control blanket is often specified in jobs for their high strength and natural fibers.

Biodegradable erosion control blankets are great options for slope and riverbank stabilization. The tough material and high strength allows it to be used in several different locations to help control erosion and strengthen areas to allow for vegetation to take root. Due to its natural fiber, the coconut erosion control blanket is also commonly used in projects for stabilization and restoration.
