Erosion Matting Variety

Choosing the right erosion mat for an erosion control project will vary depending on the slope of the site, the water flow, and the desired longevity of the mat. For many areas, biodegradable mats such as coir geotextile and straw blankets are a popular choice. These mats provide stabilization while also biodegrading into the surrounding environment, causing no harm to existing plant or animal life. This reduces environmental concerns and enriches the area over time.

Coir Erosion Control Mats

coir matsCoir Erosion Control Mats are typically considered some of the strongest biodegradable erosion mats available. Designed to last anywhere from 4-6 years, these erosion mats are a common choice for areas that require Long-Term Support while vegetation takes root. Most mats are designed with open-weave netting that is equipped to handle seeding before or after installation. Coir matting has been used in the following applications:

Synthetic, Long-Term Stabilization Solutions

These geotextiles are offered by GEI Works in woven, nonwoven, and TRM (Turf Reinforcement Mat) models to provide stabilization for the duration of their use. Geotextiles are commonly used under rip rap, retaining walls, and Other Bank Stabilization areas.

  • Woven Geotextiles - Optimal for stabilization and separation applications.
  • Nonwoven Geotextiles - Built with high filtration levels that allow for filtering of materials, silt, and sediment.
