Wood Fiber Blanket
Single or Double Net Excelsior Blanket
GEI Works' natural wood fiber blanket, also called a wood fiber mat or excelsior blanket, is an erosion control solution designed for environmental support along banks,channels, roads, and other low-flow areas. Made from aspen 100% natural wood shavings, our erosion control blankets are available in single and double-net designs. They provide a biodegradable erosion control option that can successfully stabilize shorelines until vegetation is able to take root. Standard models are sold by the roll and are designed to accommodate areas with low flows and slopes up to 3:1.
Similar to other erosion control options, the excelsior blanket is designed to stabilize a given location until roots can be established in the area. The typical lifespan for these erosion control blankets is anywhere from 12 to 18 months.
