The Natural Aspen Wood Mat for Erosion Control
Excelsior blankets are biodegradable products designed to stabilize ares with moderate erosion control or low flows. Made entirely from aspen wood fibers, our excelsior matting has helped to provide stabilization, support, and coverage around hillsides, banks and shorelines.
Excelsior blankets are constructed from a wood/excelsior matrix that can stabilize locations with slopes up to 3:1 and flows up to 6 fps. For added support, excelsior fibers are placed within a layer of polypropylene netting to help contain the fibers and increase support in your area.
