Coir Blankets by GEI Works
Biodegradable Coconut Blankets for Erosion Control
Coir blankets (also called coir mats or coconut blankets) are a biodegradable product designed for long-term erosion control in steep areas such as riverbanks, streams, canals, and wetlands. Each coir blanket is made from 100% coconut fibers to create an erosion control solution that is effective and biodegradable. Each blanket is designed with outer double-net jute with a 100% coconut coir interior. With this design, coconut blankets are an excellent choice for areas with slopes up to 1:1 and/or featuring high flows.
GEI Works' erosion control blanket is rated to last up to twenty-four (24) months to provide long-term, reliable coverage in any restoration project. Coconut blankets have been used for erosion control, stabilization and temporary reinforcement while vegetation is allowed to take root. Additional options include temporary straw blankets and long-term coir netting.
