Coir Erosion Control Mats
Coconut Coir Matting
Coir Erosion Control Mats are a robust and biodegradable matting designed to provide stabilization and reinforcement on the banks of rivers, hills, trenches, streams, lakes, and ponds. Often constructed from a woven coir twine netting, these mats can be strong enough to stabilize slopes up to 1:1 and flows up to 16 fps. Best of all, each mat uses completely biodegradable fibers that will blend into the environment. Please click on the links below for more information or give our team a call at 1-772-646-0597.
Biodegradable stakes, staples and pegs work to fasten erosion mats to the ground. Being made from a plant based plastic, each product is completely eco-friendly and will biodegrade over time. This eliminates any removal costs, while still offering a product that is as strong and as reliable as wood or steel.
Choosing the Right Coir Matting Option
Choosing the right coir erosion control mat for your location will depend on several different factors including: Slope Steepness (1:1, 2:1, 3:1), Water Flow (fps) and desired Longevity (temporary, long term, permanent). For our standard coir matting (open weave), models are designed with different strengths to accommodate higher flows or slopes.
Below you will find a standard comparison between each coir erosion models:
|Coconut Mat Model||Size Openings||Weight||Suggested
|Coir Mat 40||0.75" x 0.75"||460 g/m²||> 2:1||8 fps|
|Coir Mat 60||0.75" x 0.5"||600 g/m²||> 2:1||10 fps|
|Coir Mat 70||0.5" x 0.5"||780 g/m²||> 1:1||12 fps|
|Coir Mat 90||0.3" x 0.5"||980 g/m²||> 1:1||16 fps|
Additional Coir Matting
In addition to the open weave models, coir matting is also available in mesh form with an exterior polypropylene netting. While not as strong as the coir twine material, these mats can be a more economical stabilization option.
- Coir Fibers/PP Netting
- Coir Fibers/Natural Netting
- Coir/Straw Blends (30/70)
Erosion Control Matting Applications and Uses
Coir erosion control mats are one of the strongest available options for stabilizing, strengthening, and controlling sediment in a location. Their ability to support growth in both steep and high flow areas makes them a great choice for a range of different applications.
- Bank Restoration
- Vegetative Regrowth
- Hillside Erosion Control
- Ditch/Trench Erosion Control
